e.Tv now in Ghana

etv Ghana

etv Ghana

TV just got even more exciting in Ghana as e.tv the first privately owned but free-to-air television station in South Africa has launched a subsidiary in Accra, Ghana. This launch is a big deal because e.tv South Africa that launched in 1998 is presently the largest English-medium channel in SA.

e.tv Ghana is a free-to-air commercial channel aimed at bringing premium television services to residents of Accra. The station was launched last night (Tuesday night) and would broadcast 24 hours everyday.

The new TV station is born out of a partnership between Global Media Alliance Ghana Ltd., and Sabido Investment (PTY) Ltd., of South Africa. The experience of the parent company would give e.tv Ghana a  major competitive advantage as it would have a large synergy of programmes.

e.tv has always been very exciting and I know many TV enthusiasts across Africa (especially Nigeria) go to great lengths to be able to receive the signals on satellite from South Africa. I have watched the SA version several times in a hotel in Lagos Nigeria and can attest to the high quality programming.

    I’m happy with how fast Ghana’s economy is growing.There is hope for Africa!

    e.TV is one of my favorite station.Nigerians like it alot too.

    I wish them the best biz stay in Ghana hoping that they will be in Nigeria very soon.

  2. Evans Matey says

    David, I want to know if viewers of e tv Ghana will require a dish and a decoder to be able to receive signals as was the case with e tv SA.

    When are they commencing their broadcast? I just can’t wait. Thank you

  3. says

    I’m happy with how fast Ghana’s economy is growing. There is hope 4 Africans & african corporations. eTV’s content is hot. Several Nigerians like me like watching eTV movies.

  4. kayblaza says

  6. Ronald Garbrah says

  8. Joseph Otoo says

  9. da Pilma says

    After watching e.tv in crystal clear digital satellite transmission, Analogue terrestrial TV looks horrible.

    Please we want DVB!

    • says

      Digital terrestrial TV is already in the works. The National Communications Authorities (NCA) already has a tentative deadline for all TV stations in Ghana to switch to some form of digital transmission. I hardly ever watch TV via analogue transmission. I watch Metro TV and GTV but only on DSTV.

  10. kayblaza says

    hey i think those of us in Ghana can search for etv on NSS7 22w soon can say the exact freq n sr most of our terrestial tv is there on that satellite. but seriously multi tv is freaking me out!!, hey thanks dave. lol

    • Soldier says

      what kind or brand of decoder are you on: strong, fortec or what? You could easily do a blinds scan on some models of decoders with the right dish alignment. Where are you?

  11. says

    Hi any persons that want access with etv now must used HD DECODER and more channel like Cine Africa that bringing you nigerain movies is free. watch it 28 degrees east.

  12. says

    Multi-tv is on 28 degrees east frecuncy is 12553v19531, they start with 11 channel Cine Africa, Joy Tv, CNN. Turn ur dish now. Is free more 4 free

    • Soldier says

      Sorry man, etv is a ghost now on our screens: its there but the 6969 code strong users used to get it unscrambled works no more. But you can still get the frequencies via the http://www.lyngsat.com link I gave. Just browse correctly. Its all there.

  13. Soldier says

    All you satellite TV funs check out this site. You get to see loads of frequencies and all that there is there. Have fun

  14. Joseph Otoo says

    Hi, Ssale are you perhaps saying we can use any good decoder or the strong decoder to receive multi tv signals? How should it be done? if its possible and you have any idea?

  15. says

    Hi Guys. u can use strong receiver to treck multi-tv, after geting the signal. and then use any HD Box Decoder scan all the channels including news, sports, entertainment, movies, kids,

  16. Joseph Otoo says

    Hi Ssale, thanx for your reply am in the eastern part of Ghana. I use the strong decoder and i ve always been wondering if it can receive the multi Tv signals until i saw ur comments last week, anyway am yet to try the settings you were referring to and am hoping its works, but are you saying if you dont use the HD Box decoder to scan the channels after receiving the signal you cant scan and view the stations with the strong decoder? please break it down cos am Dem interested.

  17. Shakiru says

    Someone told me that there is a frequence for etv bt nt the same direction that is before,bt i dont knw yet may be is true or nt

  18. Bright Asare says

    pls can u add e-TV to ur exiting multi-TV so that people in outside Accra can also join, because it is one of the favourite TV in the world and i believe it raise stardard of the viewers

  19. says

  21. Bright Asare says

  22. Endurance says

    I am from nigeria and a great admirer of e.tv progs bt lost it signal last year. Can u do me a favour with the Ghana e.tv satellite name, frequency,symbol rate,polarization and LNB type. My email above. I’m missing their great programmes.

  25. JOSEPH says

    Hi,anybody who has gotten Ghana e.tv on nss 7 or any satellite with mpeg4 high definition decoder should indicate please b/4 i use my hard-earned money to buy one

  26. Evans Matey says

    David, please where in ghana can i buy a 4m dish. I intend to track channels on Nilesat 7 degrees west. is it possible to get this satelitte on a smaller dish? please kindly advise me where i can get one and @ what price and who can do the installation. I count on you.

    • says

      I don’t know anyone who has tracked Nilesat from Ghana, successfully. You might be lucky if you are located in the northern parts of Ghana. Definitely, you would need a large satellite dish.

      • Evans Matey says

        Hi David, may I know if BADR-4 can be accessed in accra. I understand the MBC channels (UAE) on the elusive Nilesat satellite are also on Arabsat (BADR-4). please let me know if the footprint covers accra and what dish size is ideal. thanks

  27. Akin val says

    e tv is mad forgeting that they cary advert accros africa. Why should they block 6969 code. Eventually e tv will be making little profit from adverts

  28. Akin val says

    My people , let us forget, for now, anything about e tv . By blocking their viewing code, they have shown us the way to look for an improved alternative tv like joy tv.

  29. EVANS AKAMA says

    I use strong decoder srt 4669x and get RDV on 36E w4 on Ku band and it is scrambled what code will unlock this channel pls i need help

    • Spencer Churchill says

      How to get RDV.

      Press 8280 on your remote while on the RDV channel, this will show the BISS key panel/window on your TV screen
      Scroll down to Row no. 19 All the numbers on this row are oooooooooooooooooo,

      Just replace the 1st 16 nos with these numbers 00 01 48 49 00 01 48 49 to unlock the signal.
      Press exit, YES when prompted to save changes.
      Enjoy RDV.

  48. wumiblend says

    The E channel on Dstv is not as loaded and interesting as the one on the free – 2 air dish. No programme guide, no movie info, no adverts, once you are not lucky to be in front of your Tv screen when a movie is playing, you might no be able to get to know the title of such movie again. and when you are watching a particular programme, you don’t know what to expect next, the info bar does not say anything except Etv Africa very boring

  49. Manny says

    Hey there! I mistakenly deleted d 18th & 19th nos wen i was trying 2 edit RDV on d biss page.pls wat nos do i put there?wud still affect d scrambled channel?tanx

  51. miju says

    shame on nigeria. ghana is getting more exciting free to air channels while we are being fed one stupid startimes. can’t even get e.tv nigeria. thumbs up ghana! i hope multi tv will bring on the e.tv ghana on its bouquet.

  52. Manny,Nigeria says

    @Spencer,i inserted d 16 zeros as instructed to complete d sequence,notyn happened.its still showing Scrambled wit signal strenth of 66%.I use srt4663,pls wat do i do next?

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Hello. The BISS keys only works on the line with all zeros. On srt4669x its the 19th line. On the srt4622x its the 9th line what about yours? Check and let me know.

  53. JAMES says

    bros some dish with two LNB, pls help which satellite deos the second LNB pionts to? and where can i watch aljazeera?

  54. Spencer Churchill says

    Hello, for Aljazeera you have to either choose Badr4 at 26.0 east or Arabsat 30.2 East or Turksat at 42 East. For more information go to lyngsat.com

    The use of a double LNB is not new. It depends on the individual and what satellite he wants to track. If you can tell me what angle the dish is aligned to, I can possibly give you what satellites he is watching or has tracked.

  55. JAMES says

    i have not seen two LNB facing east but i have seen it facing west. looking at the dish, bros the dish is facing east to my own calculation, is facing Eutelsat W7. all i know is that the dish is facing where my multitv dish is facing. confirm it

  56. Mikki says

    Well James those dishes facing east with two LNBs are receiving two different satellites. One is for Astra 2b @28.2 E and the other is for Eutelsat W7 @36 E, which receives some of the multichoice channels.

  57. youngkent says

    frist and fromst,gretin 2 u all.so when etv is comin back.pls,don 4get people of naija bcs wil still ned them santeta afica,crt,etv.
