A new television station, MTV, owned by one of the local companies, Global Television Ltd, has started beaming its programmes and related services to Malawians.

Test signal started on July 9 this year, according to Laphy Nasungwi, the company’s Technical Director.

“We are purely entertainment and sports. It’s a station for everyone. In the near future, MTV sports shall cover live local leagues (football) as no one does it,” Nasungwi.

They have since engaged former MBC TV sports analyst Saulos Thindwa as their sports pundit.

“The station will offer much of entertainment and sports programmes and other interesting and other must watch documentaries.

“We are also planning to have special channel that would be branded MTV sports,” he explained.

Nasungwi further said they will ensure that the television station identifies itself with programmes that will be highlighting the way of life in society in terms of culture, beliefs, art and language, among others.

MTV is on GoTV 816 and Malawi Digital Broadcasting Network (MDBN) 113.

The Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) licensed the company to provide private television broadcasting services for a period of seven years commencing on July 31 2015 and ending on July 30 2022 and can always be renewed.

Tsano kumudzi kuno ifika liti imeyi Kkkkkk

APM Sangathe

CheNkope, DSTV does not control names for countries. We have Registraar of Companies boys eish. Can DSTV register all those TV stations in Malawi?

Amalawi Umbuli

Macra does not have control names. The Registrar of companies has that authority. If a company name called MTV was registered in Malawi there is no way MTV would have the name. Eish a malawi zina kumangoyamikila koma ma negatives dziko silipita patali ili.

Zonse zili upside down. Umbuli ndi mate nda. When you suggest a name of an organisation say Supersport Ltd, only if someone registered already u can’t use. Go for any ne now fast

wadombola pipo

Tell us about its coverage, nkhani mwatifotokozera koma simunamalize kuti ndi madera ati omwe ikuoneka panopo. Komaso don’t 4get kuti Gotv ili kumizinda kokha kuma town ndi malo onse akumizi kulibe Gotv. Ndiye MTV tiyiwonera bwanji kuno ku KU Chinkhoma?

Rev Golong'ondo

That’s a welcome development. I missed Saulos, the real sports reporter. I still remember him saying: ”it’s a draw in favour of Civo.”
