All About Multi Tv Free To Air On Astra 2b by twinstaiye(m): 3:28pm On Nov 25, 2009
Multi TV is a Free to Air Satellite Television, the first of its kind in West Africa. It is free to air, and you don’t need to pay anyone any monthly subscription. Presently, they have 10 channels comprising of the following – Joy TV, Joy News, Joy Sports, Hitz TV, Cine Afrik, 4Kids, Jesus Channel, TV3/GTV, Nhyra TV and of course CNN/BBC. There are two more channels coming soon – Adom TV and Real TV.
On the same satellite, (which is Astra 2b) you can also pick another channel called CRTV which is also a very entertainment channels though with a lot of bias for Christian religion, there is also LMTV with lots of bias for music.
You will agree with me that it cut across all areas of entertainment one can think of, Music is on nhyra tv and hitz tv. Multi TV shows Bundesliga, some bits of Serie A on their Joy sports channel. They show Nigerian home videos on Cine Afrik and of course you get lots of cartoons on 4kids and news from CNN/BBC and Aljazeera which they exchange sometimes for Sky News. They show lots of American movies, series and Mexican soaps on Joy TV. Between Friday and Sunday, at 12.30am Nigerian time, Joy News is replaced with Midnight TV, I wonder what goes on in Midnight on Midnight TV, your guess is as good as mine.
Multi TV satellite can be track on Astra 2B on 28.2 degree east with as low as 60cm dish here in Nigeria. You can not use the popular Strong Decoder to watch it since Multi TV transmits on Mpeg4 platform, and therefore you will need HD Decoders.
On this forum here in Nigeria, we highly recommended Daarsat Receivers, it is HD and Mpeg4 compliant, and it is very cheap for 18,000 together with all daarsat accessories which could be useful for other FTA stuff. If you so desire, you can go for Multi TV Digibox, especially if you are in Ghana or its environs, or better still if you have a sound computer knowledge, you can watch multi tv on your PC if you can lay your hands on DVBs Card.
What is more, Multi TV is free, and they keep saying it on their channels, that it is FREE.

Re: All About Multi Tv Free To Air On Astra 2b by lovala(m): 3:38am On Dec 04, 2009
baba twin, abeg help me out here:

I am very much interested in he DAARSAT decoder because of its MPEG4 and DVB-S2 qualities. Given that the price (as stated here in this forum) is 18k, I would like to ask from you how I can get it since I am living in Yaounde - Cameroon? If i find any reliable individual coming to lagos, will it be possible for him to get in touch with you or any other brother hobbyist to pick up the box and accessories for me? Also, I'll like to know how to hook up the box with a strong set up box so as to make use of the blind scan property inherent there in (SRT 53x or 63x). May be this last part of my question should be reserved for when I've got the box, huh!

Thankx for your anticipated cooperation,
Lovala.
