OpenView HD, the satellite-based free-to-air television service launched by the same group that owns e.tv, has finally disclosed its user numbers.
MD Maxwell Nonge said Platco is “meeting the strategic objectives outlined for the business”. He said new channels will be added to the bouquet soon.
OpenView HD was launched in 2013.
“Content that will be added is guided by focused costumer research to ensure that the channels are in line with the target audience’s viewing patterns,” Nonge said.
The platform offers viewers 19 entertainment channels in a number of languages, including English, Zulu, Afrikaans and Hindi. It also broadcasts radio stations Yfm, Gagasi FM, Heart FM, OFM and LM Radio.
OpenView HD decoders cost R399 (excluding dish and installation). The service uses the same satellite as MultiChoice’s DStv, so those with DStv dishes don’t need to acquire a second dish. – © 2015 NewsCentral Media
