What is a Narrow TV Channel?

A NaTV Channel is a do-it-yourself TV Broadcast platform consisting of a collection of color slides which are played one after the other on air at intervals of a few seconds, accompanied by audio. It is TV’s version of Power Point1.

With NarrowTV, clients receive their own TV channel and air time, at a lower total cost than with a full video TV channel. Moreover, no expensive broadcast or audiovisual equipment is actually needed to broadcast a NaTV channel. Clients can make their own slides and upload them via email to ECS, or by using a web access tool, from any location with an internet access.

These economic satellite TV channels are ideal for getting the message out to the maximum number of viewers across Sub Saharan Africa, at extremely cost effective prices to meet just about any budget.

Better still, all our NaTV channels will be received Free-to-Air and DTH, available 24 hours a day to anybody with a satellite dish and decoder.

Typical applications:

  • Shopping Channels
  • Info channels
  • Astrology channels
  • Product marketing channels
  • Radio Channels
  • Many others!
