Johannesburg – On Digital Media on Thursday unveiled TopTV, a new affordable satellite pay TV offering with pricing starting at R99 per month.

TopTV launches on May 1, and will provide 55 channels under the following genres, variety, kids & music, entertainment & knowledge and ultimate movies.

ODM will also provide seven different pricing options, from R99 to R249 per month. 

Vino Govender, CEO of ODM said: "The majority of South Africans who can afford to pay between R99 and R249 a month, will have access to world class television entertainment across all genres including News & Knowledge, Movies, Family and Sport, Kids, Music and Cultural programming.

"Some of the highlights of these channels include the Top History channel which will bring the history of South Africa to the fore as never before, BBC News, Eurosport News, 6 dedicated 24 hour movie channels, as well as services for the Portuguese and French communities in South Africa," Govender said.

ODM said TopTV had secured programming and channels from media giants including Fox, Warner, Disney, CBS and Discovery, and it added that nine locally developed channels would also be included. 

On Digital Media has an effective BEE shareholding of 68% and was awarded an Icasa Pay TV License in September 2007 and issued the license in July 2008.
