Mutichoice launches OneZed channel on GOtv


MultiChoice Malawi has announced the launch of OneZed which will be available on GOtv Value, GOtv Max and GOtv Supa packages.

The channel will be available for viewing from the 5th of July as part of diversifying the choices for its subscribers.

OneZed is a proudly pan-African channel that caters to the Zambian and Malawian markets, with entertaining shows that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Customers can expect shows that tell authentic African stories with international appeal. Popular shows on the channel include drama/comedy, ‘Landlady Meets Landlord’, thought provoking drama series ‘Ubuntu’, Afro-novela’s ‘Zuba’ and ‘Mpali’.

MultiChoice Malawi Corporate Affairs Manager Zena Makunje said it appeals to the Zambian and Malawian audiences because these are their stories on their screens.

Makunje said: "There is so much more, not mentioned music as well. We are answering the promise for convenience."

"It begs the question as to how can we integrate content in an established market like Zambia and make it cater fro the Malawians audience while we investing in expanding the Malawian content in television and film industry to at some point produce Malawian content as well."

Some Malawian films that have made it on the Multichoice platforms include include Fatsani and HighBrow.

The addition of the channel to GOtv packages forms part of MultiChoice’s ongoing business imperative to add more local content channels to its packages.
