Two years after its debut as a foremost news and current affairs channel, Liberty Television – broadcasting from Kaduna, will, from tomorrow, berth on GOTv, having been assigned Channel 110, a statement from the Executive Chairman of ATAR Communications Nigeria Limited, owners of Liberty TV, Dr.Ahmed Tijjani Ramalan, said.
Liberty TV’s expansion onto GOtv, according to Ramalan, is an indication of the station’s rising profile as a leading television platform with an ever increasing audience base across Nigeria and West Africa, “who are captivated by ourunique mix of English and Hausa contents.”
Since its inception in 2014, Liberty TV has become one of the most watched TV channels in the northern part of the country, available on Startimes Channel 180 and Strong HD decoders.
With the kick-off of digitisation in May, 2016 by the Federal Government in Jos, Plateau State, Liberty TV was also included amongs the 15 pioneer TV content providers available on the nation’s first FreeTV, on Channel 775.
Liberty TV, a 24-hour station appeals to a broad spectrum of viewers due to its rich content in news, politics, culture, entertainment, business, sport, among others.
It is also a virile platform for views, rendered in Hausa and English, with active reporting from key Nigerian capitals and correspondents from Ghana, Sudan, Niger, Cameroun, and Chad.
“As we hope to hop onto other platforms such as the premium DSTV, we are planning on opening further bureaus across Africa, Middle East and Europe, that will give
us further latitude to report the world to Africa, and report Africans and African affairs happening abroad,” Ramalan disclosed.
To underscore its growing influence as a platform of record, Liberty TV has won two awards at 2016 edition of the Nigerian Broadcasting Media Merits Awards (NBMA), bagging the Best TV Channel and Best Indigenous TV Station Awards.
