MultiChoice unveils Ramadan channel
MultiChoice Nigeria is preparing to launch a special pop-up channel for muslim subscribers on DStv and GOtv throughout the month of Ramadan.
This channel is dedicated to take care of the spiritual needs of Muslims by broadcasting local Ramadan-related content.
The pop-up channel will run from May 5 to June 4 and will air Ramadan content including talkshows, music, lifestyle, cooking shows, docuseries, daily calls to prayer, children’s programmes and conduct and obligations of Muslims during Ramadan.
John Ugbe, CEO of MultiChoice Nigeria, said: “We are delighted to launch the Ramadan Pop-up Channel, which is a platform carefully created to provide faith-nourishing television content for every member of the Muslim family, including the young ones.
“The month of Ramadan is an important one for Muslims worldwide, as it provides an opportunity for physical as well as spiritual purification through fasting, increase in worship and recitation of the Holy Quran. The Ramadan Pop-up Channel provides a platform for our subscribers to have access to programmes that increase their faith and trust in Allah.”
He further explained that the channel will provide programmes that will strengthen the beliefs of Muslims and also entertain them throughout the Ramadan period.
Active subscribers on all DStv packages including DStv Now, as well as GOtv Plus and GOtv Max Muslim customers, will have access to the channel.
The specific channel codes have not yet been announced.
