Days after launching a big project, Second Chance UG, NTV Uganda has continued to consolidate its position as the number one TV station in Uganda.This after its position came under threat from strong rivals NBS TV.

NBS TV management who managed to lure many of NTV’s top staff and presenters from the Serena based station to their Kamwokya Media plaza had weakened NTV so much so that they were well on their way to the top.

With their live broadcasting, robust team and dedicated management, NBS TV was steadily eating away on NTV’s viewership.

NTV Uganda, who are celebrating 10 years of existence in Uganda, are not just sitting back. They have flown in the best live broadcast equipment to put NBS out of business. According to our source at Serena, NTV wants to redefine television by boosting their capacity for live event broadcasting, a thing that has been NBS’ strong point for the past one year or so.

“To boost our capacity for Live Event broadcasting… new equipment has arrived,” NTV Uganda showed off their new equipment  online.

A source at NBS TV told us that this is not something to worry about as they are just doing what NBS did long time ago. He said that time may be out for them and they should just let the new kid on the block shine.

We are watching the two stations closely and will keep you posted.

Azam TV, a sub-Saharan Pay TV service provider, has launched a new TV channel aimed at promoting Ugandan content. Dubbed “Channel U”, the new channel will be entertainment-focused and will be showing content from music to movies to dramas among others.

Speaking to media during a press conference held at their offices in Kololo on Thursday, Dennis Kalikwani, the Sales & Marketing Manager at Azam Media Uganda revealed that the new channel was created in response to a growing demand from their customers for more Ugandan content.

Channel “U” serves as a home for majorly Ugandan content aimed at exporting Ugandan culture and talent to the rest of the world and will be airing an array of content ranging from music, Luganda dubbed series, and entertainment shows.

“We want to redefine entertainment with Channel U by providing something localized for everyone to enjoy with content that resonates with what happens in their day-to-day life.” Kalikwani added.

According to word on the grapevine, Mujuni resigned from NBS TV over salary-related issues. Sources also revealed that the station failed to deliver on their promise for more resources to support his investigative work.

During his two years at NBS, Mujuni was directly involved in 11 investigative reports.

By Our Reporter

They are rich and famous, but the love of their life somehow continues to elude them. That’s a story that is all too familiar. We have seen way too many celebrities struggle with love. And, often, their tumultuous relationships are displayed for all to see in the tabloids making fodder for idle street talk.

That is what to expect in new TV series, Loving Tyra, that is now showing on Pearl Magic. Tyra is a successful musician with everything she can possibly need in her life; the money, the houses, the fame, the cars, the talent, all except LOVE.

However, in a twist of fortune, she unsuspectingly gets entangled with a fugitive and conman who is out hunting for his next victim. With her weak emotions and pressure from her fans and media, she ends up opening up to him.

She soon finds herself trapped in a web of love, music and mending old friendships, all that will challenge her beliefs and turn her life upside down.

The TV series stars Vivian Gold Kaitesi in the leading role as Tyra. Kaitesi has featured in several hit films and TV productions including Pretending To Be Fine (2014), Damage (2016), Hustle (2017), The Game TV Series (2017), to mention but a few.

The drama unfolds in a 13-part series that airs every Thursday at 7.30pm on Pearl Magic, available on all DStv packages, and available up to GOtv Value.
