MultiChoice Uganda has added another local entertainment channel to its bouquet, focusing on Busoga sub-region.
The pay TV company announced the addition of BABA TV on the DStv platform in Uganda on channel 374. The channel will be available to active customers on all DStv packages.
The expansion of local content on DStv follows the introduction of several local content channels like Pearl Magic, Channel 44, NTV and BBS TV in line with a bid from MultiChoice Africa to highlight some of the best local content coming from the countries in which it operates.
“We believe that DStv viewers will be happy to see the inclusion of another local content channel, and it gives us as Basoga great pride in knowing that we have reached the caliber of content that is DStv-worthy,” Moses Balyeku, the managing director of BABA TV, said.
“It gives us great pleasure to announce that effective today, BABA TV is now available on DStv for our viewers. As we continue to look out for local content that is of great quality, it is always refreshing to land on channels like BABA TV through which we can give our viewers what they have interest in,” Hassan Saleh, the MultiChoice Uganda managing director, said.
Rebecca Kadaga, the speaker of the parliament of Uganda applauded the team from BABA TV upon reaching this milestone.
“We should all work towards showing the best possible news and content to attract partnerships like the one we see taking effect here today between DStv and BABA TV,” Kadaga said.
BABA TV is now available for streaming on-the-go via smartphones, tablets or desktops through the DStv Now app.
