Stop pirating our contents or face the law - GOtv
GOtv has launched the Akwaaba Magic Program on their channel.
The Corporate Affairs Manager of GOtv, Mr Nii Amah Dagadu has cautioned radio and television stations pirating their content to end such habit.
According to him, their major concern as an institution is the high rate of piracy in the business and it is time such actions are curtailed before it affects their operations.
In an interview with Soireenews at the launch of the Akwaaba Magic program at Golden Bean in the Ashanti Region, he emphasized that some Radio together with Television stations are particularly fond of using their content for their purposes without engaging the right to acquire.
According to him, this normally affects the business hence their decision to preach against it.
"Piracy is one of our greatest challenges," Mr Nii Amah Dagadu
"Most of the channels do not invest in content yet they prefer showing what we have acquired at a higher cost. particularly on sport, we purchase Laliga, Serie A, Champions League and Premier yet most of the radio stations that have no right take advantage and use them. We have purchased the contents with our money and it affects us.
"They must come to us so we can sit with them," he added.
Mr Amah gave room for any media house who wants to use their contents for broadcasting purposes to engage them or face full punishments against copyright.
He assured Ghanaians that those who are already on GOtv Max will be soon be upgraded to GOtv Supa within 30 days to enjoy the Akwadaa magic channel.
He advised the public this coming festive season to grab their decoders at home to avoid COVID- 19 surge.
GOtv has so far selected 20 orphanages in the region to give out free decoders without subscriptions for one full year.
The Branch Supervisor, Madam Dzigbodi Atiase emphasized that the outreach to the less privileged will continue in subsequent years.
She added that some schools are already enjoying GOtv's corporate social responsibility without a fee to enhance their learning ability.
Mr Kennedy Denkyi Appah, Channel Head, Akwaaba Magic said Ghanaians have demanded local content hence the inclusion on the GOtv Supa.
GOtv is therefore assuring Ghanaians to believe in them and will deliver according to their demand.
