GOtv cuts price of digital decoders for World cup knockout stage



In an effort to ensure as many Ugandans as possible get the opportunity to enjoy the knockout stages of the 2014 World cup in Brazil. GOtv has decided to slash the price of its STB/digital decoders as part of its GO Brazil promotion which was launched at the beginning of the month. GOtv digital decoders will now be on sale at only 89,000 down from 118,000.

Announcing the price cut in a press statement Patricia Kiconco the GOtv Segment brand manager said this has already been one of the best world cups in the history of the tournament, all of the matches have been exciting and the number of goals scored per game has exceeded all expectations. We want to ensure many more Ugandans get the chance to enjoy the spectacle.

GOtv and DStv are the only two companies in Uganda with rights to show the World cup on the Pay-tv platform via Super Sports. GOtv will show both semi-finals live, the 3rd and fourth playoffs plus the final to be played at the Maracana in Rio, all the other matches in the round of the 16 and the quarter finals, will be carried live by their FTA partner UBC which is also available on both platforms.

Patricia encouraged Ugandans to take advantage of this offer which she said will last for the duration of the tournament provided stocks last. She advised Ugandans who might have bought decoders form other operators that advertised the FIFA World Cup but are not showing the matches to take advantage of the affordable promotion. This is a fantastic chance to go digital with the latest DVB T2 decoder at the most affordable price.

The FIFA world cup in Brazil is reaching the business end of the tournament the group stages are almost complete with the last round of matches being played on the 25th and 26th of June. Two of Africa’s powerhouses Nigeria and Ghana still stand a chance of progressing to the next round and are playing Argentina and Portugal respectively. So far the tournament has featured a number of shocks with major Europeans teams Spain, Italy and England being the main casualties.
