[Via Satellite 04-14-2014] MultiChoice, an African Direct-to-Home (DTH) operator, will expand its capacity on Intelsat’s 904 satellite to better reach its Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) offering in Sub-Saharan Africa. The increased capacity will allow MultiChoice to further develop its DTT GOtv product offerings in African countries where it already has a presence, such as Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya, and others, as well as target new countries in the region.

Intelsat currently provides DTT solutions in southern Africa, giving audiences access to digital TV content, and hosts premium video distribution neighborhoods serving all of the populated continents.
