Tourism and entertainment company Solution Media & Infotech is launching a family-oriented TV channel.
Hi-Impact TV will launch on June 1, according to Solution Media & Infotech chairman Prince Adeyanju Lipede.
Lipede said the channel would deliver quality family-friendly content, including soap operas and edutainment.
Under the motto “Securing the Future,” Hi-Impact TV will air “programmes that have a meaningful impact for the family,” he added.
The channel’s programming also has a nod to the past, Lipede noted. “When the Mexican soap operas came to our screens, they were captivating. The storylines were so interesting that everybody – young and old, male and female – wanted to watch them. The idea is to recapture all those things that are missing in the entertainment world.
“Viewers will see programmes like the popular America’s Got Talent, X Factor and a lot of other programmes that are captivating audiences nationally and internationally. There are also Mexican soap operas like When You are Mine, The Gardener’s Daughter and Moreno.”
Student-targeting show Syllabus for Excellence will also air on the network and aims to prepare Nigerian pupils for exams. “Qualified teachers have been employed to help these pupils based on the current syllabus,” Lipede said.
Hi-Impact TV will air 24 hours a day, kicking off with a live broadcast at the Hi-Impact Planet Amusement Park on June 1. It plans to reach a nationwide and international audience.
The channel will be available on platforms including DSTV, GOtv, Kwesé TV and ViewSat.
