Namibia’s newest television channel called Network Television (NTV) was launched on 8 February 2022 which also coincides with the channel’s premier on the DSTV and GOtv.
The channel is the product of the Namibia Media Holdings which started with the Republikein newspaper 45 years ago and has grown to a staff complement of 231 in the country.
The launch was officiated by the NMH Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Albe Botha who said while their print operations will continue for years to come, NTV will be added to the list of news mediums the media house offers to bring quality content into the living rooms of many Namibians.
“We are excited to be given this opportunity of sharing Namibian content through channel 285 on DStv and channel 94 on GOtv. We ask all content producers in Namibia to embrace this opportunity to share their content with us.”
MultiChoice Namibia Managing Director Roger Gertze said as Africa’s leading entertainment platform and most loved storyteller, Multichoice continuously seek opportunities to provide local and inspired content to Namibian audiences.
“Our goal with this channel is to provide a hyperlocal content offering to Namibians who have been yearning for an opportunity like this. Network TV will certainly enhance the customer’s viewing experience even more, and at great value,” he said.
NTV is expected to bring viewers the latest in current affairs, sport and entertainment news from across the country and the region. Empowering and entertaining audiences across Namibia, NTV enhances the free flow of information to a wide demographic and interest groups. The channel, which will be broadcast in English as well as some local languages, will be broadcast 24 hours, 7 days a week and 365 days a year, is available on DSTV channel 285 and GOtv 94.
