About
MultiChoice
Uganda

Rooted in Ugandan society, MultiChoice Uganda is 100% owned by MultiChoice Africa Holdings. Customers have a choice of six packages delivered via the DStv satellite platform with a total of over 140 channels as well as three packages via the GOtv digital terrestrial (DTT) service.

The story of MultiChoice Uganda is the story of a virtuous circle that benefits all parties. Our customers always demand better local programming from us. To meet that demand, through M-Net and SuperSport we commission more content, more films, more series and more sports coverage. All of this activity has translated into more employment, more revenue and more skills for, first, hundreds and, then, thousands of Ugandans. As more and more people subscribe to our services, we are able to keep growing the ways in which we invest in our country and in the lives and prospects of, especially, our learners. We are able to state that, thanks to the support of our customers and our many partners, today MultiChoice Uganda is a great force for good in our society. We promise to keep justifying your continued faith in us.

MultiChoice Talent Factory through the various activities we run in Uganda with the individuals we train through our academy and masterclasses is giving us the opportunity to enrich lives in our country.

Growing Uganda’s creative industries and sporting talent

In 2016, no fewer than 50 productions – films, series and soapies – were produced for Maisha Magic East in Uganda. These productions commissioned by M-Net were worth US$536 000 to Ugawood’s booming production companies, to directors, writers, editors, actors, lighting and sound and support personnel.

By sponsoring and broadcasting domestic soccer matches and basketball as well as other tournaments, we’ve created invaluable exposure which has enabled hundreds to earn their living through sport.
