More African fare on GTV


On 1 December, African pay-TV network GTV will launch two new channels targeted specifically at the African market. Black Entertainment Television (BET) has proved successful both in America and Europe, while the Afro Music Channel is dedicated to showcasing the best artists from across the African continent and the wider African diasporas.

Said Julian McIntyre, Founder and MD of GTV: “These partnerships reflect our commitment to bring the best and most relevant content to our viewers. The two new channels, combined with Discovery World, are a real Christmas present to our subscribers. We continue to listen to our audience and deliver on what they are asking for. I am confident that both BET and Afro Music Channel are going to be a big hit with everyone.’

BET is positioned as the world’s leading entertainment channel dedicated to Black culture and is comprised of high-quality reality, music, talk, news and documentary programmes. The channel’s offering in December will include 106 & Park, Real Life Divas, College Hill, Keyshia Cole and Leading Men, as well as mega-special events such as the BET Awards, BET Hip Hop Awards and Celebration of Gospel. BET’s longest-running gospel programme, Bobby Jones Gospel, will debut on Sundays.

The Afro Music Channel features the latest music videos, live sessions, interviews and documentaries covering the most famous, talented and hippest African musicians that have made history through their music.
