GBS: A Year On

By Daily Guide

A year after entering the Ghanaian market, GBS has successfully grown its operations to become one of the major players in Pay-TV, offering affordable, dynamic and innovative programmes with a strong focus on African content.

Since September 2007, GBS has grown from strength to strength, developing a strong and loyal subscriber base and regularly announcing exciting new content incorporating the best of African and international broadcasting.

GBS now offers a diverse range of programmes ranging from news, to sports and lifestyle entertainment while maintaining a strong emphasis on African programmes. New exciting developments for Ghanaian customers include the new G-Africa content, which includes Ghanaian and other African content.

Michael Yamson, General Manager of GBS Ghana said:  “In 12 short months, GBS has become a major Pay-TV network offering high quality, low price services extending the reach of Pay-TV to a wide range of Ghanaians.

We celebrated our first birthday with the announcement of an innovative new scratch card based payment system and are committed to continuing to make it easier for our customers to subscribe to GBS. We are looking forward to announcing even more new content in our second year of operation and further strengthening the GBS offering”.

GBS President, Julian McIntyre said: “Until GBS entered the market the African Pay TV sector was artificially constrained by monopoly pricing and non-relevant content.

African consumers want to watch the latest high quality television programming that combines international and local content at an affordable price. Whether for sports, entertainment, news or education, GBS has demonstrated that strong content can be provided at a low cost entry point.”

GTV is already available in Botswana, Cameroon, DRC, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and is currently proceeding with a phased roll-out across sub-Saharan Africa.
