Rooted in Ugandan society, MultiChoice Uganda is 100% owned by MultiChoice Africa Holdings. Customers have a choice of six packages delivered via the DStv satellite platform with a total of over 140 channels as well as three packages via the GOtv digital terrestrial (DTT) service.
How we create social value
The power of MultiChoice Uganda’s operations is felt by thousands of entrepreneurs, suppliers, employees and partners. We are one of the country’s top 50 corporate taxpayers and, in addition to employing several hundred people directly in our five offices, we help sustain the businesses of over 1 000 installers, agents and retailers, most of which are small businesses.
Since 2011, we’ve delivered MultiChoice content via the GOtv digital terrestrial television network, an investment worth US$24.5 million which has made amazing content available to people living in 12 towns and cities.
Enriching Ugandan Lives
To help ensure that we positively impact the lives of creative professionals in our entertainment industry and develop a sustainable pipeline of local content, the MultiChoice Talent Factory develops future local producers, cast, crew and individuals who are in turn filtering into the local community. MultiChoice Talent Factory, through the various activities we run in Uganda, with the individuals trained through the Academy and Masterclass, gives us the opportunity to continue to enrich lives in our country.
Growing Uganda’s creative industries and sporting talent
In 2016, no fewer than 50 productions – films, series and soapies – were produced for Maisha Magic East in Uganda. These productions commissioned by M-Net were worth US$536 000 to Ugawood’s booming production companies, to directors, writers, editors, actors, lighting and sound and support personnel.
By sponsoring and broadcasting domestic soccer matches and basketball as well as other tournaments, we’ve created invaluable exposure which has enabled hundreds to earn their living through sport.
