MultiChoice Namibia, this afternoon cemented its position as a tech trailblazer by hosting its annual content showcase event via live stream.
Hosted by Managing Director Roger Gertze and his leadership team, the virtual event gave the media and other key industry stakeholders an exclusive look at the breakthrough content coming to Namibian audiences via DStv and GOtv this summer.
“Video entertainment is our language, it’s what we work with every day in line with our mission of making great entertainment more accessible throughout the country. It was only natural that we used video in an innovative way to rise above the challenges presented by Covid-19. Additionally, this showcase demonstrated MultiChoice’s hyper-local approach in our business and local content offerings alike. In this way, we were able to use video, the medium we ‘own’, in a powerful way,” explained Gertze.
The event featured updates from across the MultiChoice Group covering exciting additions to its already unrivalled entertainment and sports content offering as well as insights into how the company is innovating to deliver a world-class customer experience, new productions, movies and more.
