This got me thinking maybe this is to compensate subscribers by MultiChoice for the suppose increase in prices of subscription which will take effect from 1st of August 2018.
Already, MultiChoice is facing serious competition and ditching with Netflix in South Africa which I’m guessing might happen in NG later in the future.
According to MultiChoice, ALL active DStv and GOtv Max subscribers will be treated to the first ever Africa Magic Nollywood Stars Pop-Up Channel (DStv channel 198 and GOtv channel 29) with access to some of Nollywood’s biggest titles.
the Nollywood Pop-up channel will feature the biggest homegrown movies with no space for repeats and would also be streamed on the DStv Now App.
Subscribers will have an abundance of critically acclaimed Nollywood movies to choose from and enjoy. This is the ultimate Nollywood binge: twenty-four hours and seven days a week for the whole month.
A-list stars to expect on the pop-up channel are Richard Mofe- Damijo, Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Ramsey Nouah, Dakore Akande, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, OC Ukeje and many more.
The pop-up extravaganza kicks off with big titles such as Isoken, Okafor’s Law, A Trip to Jamaica, Lotanna, Road to Yesterday, Hakkunde, Dinner, and 76 amongst many others and will also feature a special ‘AMVCA block’ showcasing nominees of the upcoming 2018 AMVCAs.
The Africa Magic Nollywood Pop-Up channel will open on Wednesday, 1 August at 12 pm and run till Friday, 31 August, 2018 on DStv channel 198 and GOtv channel 29.
