Satellite TV Keeps Growing In Nigeria And Ghana - SES Survey
According to the annual Satellite Monitor Survey commissioned by SES, it appears that satellite TV reception in Nigeria and Ghana have increased by approximately 23 and 19 per cent respectively in 2019 - when compared to the last time the same survey was conducted.
The survey indicated that satellite TV was the preferred mode that 11.8 million households in Nigeria would prefer to receive television signals and this compared favourable well with other modes
including terrestrial and via the internet.
Interestingly, the study also made the point that high-definition TV (HDTV) sets are growing in a big way in both the Nigerian markets, with both now seeing about 50% penetration of HDTV sets.
Clint Brown, Vice President of Sales and Market Development for SES Video in Africa, commenting of the findings of the report said it shows that satellite is still the ‘optimal’ infrastructure that will deliver hundreds of TV channels in high-quality pictures.
SES continues to survey the Nigerian and Ghanian TV market as “they are the most dynamic and penetrated in Sub-Saharan Africa.”
