BREAKING. MultiChoice Ghana loses all local free-to-air TV channels on DStv Ghana and GOtv Ghana after 'highly unusual' power trip system failure.

DStv subscribers and GOtv subscribers in Ghana lost access to all local free-to-air channels on Wednesday night and into Thursday 7 February following what MultiChoice described as a "highly unusual" system failure.

DStv Ghana told subscribers in the West African country about the missing TV channels that it was "currently experiencing a temporary loss of the uplinked Ghanaian channels on both GOtv and DStv platforms due to a major power trip on the uplink site in Accra which occurred around 22:00 on 6 February 2019."

"This has resulted in our subscribers being unable to view all free-to-air channels on their DStv and GOtv decoders."

MultiChoice said "this type of system failure is highly unusual and our engineers are at the site working to restore viewing as soon as possible. We regret any inconvenience caused our subscribers and broadcast partners".
