MultiChoice Nigeria launched in 1993 as a joint venture between MultiChoice Africa and Adewunmi Ogunsanya (SAN). We set out from the beginning to provide quality entertainment in homes across Nigeria. From small beginnings of about 30 employees, we have grown to over 2,000 employees while indirectly supporting over 20,000 more jobs.

We offer premium entertainment comprising general entertainment, news, information, sports and education channels through our DStv and GOtv platforms.

Today, millions of Nigerians enjoy content in their indigenous languages through our Africa Magic Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa channels.
