9th October has major significance for all Ugandans alike, aside from celebrating our 56th independence anniversary this year it will also mark the date when all DStv subscribers from access and GOtv subscribers on GOtv Value and GOtv Plus get a full month’s access to the newly launched authentic Ugandan channel Pearl Magic.
Speaking about this development at the MultiChoice head offices, Albert Nga, Marketing Manager MultiChoice Uganda said, “We have dubbed this offer as our independence bonanza owing to the fact that Independence signifies and beacons patriotism and hope to our beautiful nation. The Pearl Magic channel was launched to celebrate and highlight our Ugandanness through film and television and we felt that there was no better way than opening up our Ugandan channel to our access, Value and Plus subscribers until 9th November 2018 and no extra cost”.
Pearl Magic Channel is available on channel 161 to DStv subscribers on family to premium and on GOtv Max on channel 304. However from 9th October to 9th November 2018 DStv access and GOtv Plus and Value subscribers will also watch the channel. Active DStv subscribers can also access the channel using the DStv Now app anytime, anywhere on their mobile phones or tablets.
“Slightly a week after Pearl Magic launched we wanted all our active subscribers enjoy the fantastic authentic Ugandan content that is airing on our channel. Shows like Mother in law, Jechili, Beyond the Beat, Love Makanika, Etendo, Jangu Tulye, 5 @ Home should now become lunch time conversations because the time it neigh for us to be proud of our own home grown talent. This is a major platform for the region to appreciate the incredible talent that hubs in our film industry and to be proud of our heritage through the expression of film”.
Nga concluded “#Kyaffeddala, the next month should be nothing short of exciting for our subscribers as they warm up to our own Ugandan content. We encourage subscribers to upgrade and renew their subscription after the 9th of November so that they continue to be marveled by our own talent on Pearl Magic”.
