Nahoo TV: From Kenya with TV

By Addis Fortune

The Kenyan company Nahoo LLC, officially launched its Ethiopian channel Nahoo Satellite TV at the Golden Tulip Hotel on January 14, 2016. The TV channel, operating on its Kenyan network will be piloted until February, said Kidus Dagnachew, CEO of Nahoo TV.
The agreement with its Ethiopian partner, Tuba Multimedia, was signed on November 15, after each did its own feasibility study.
This new Ethiopian channel has been developed based on Tuba’s interest in exploiting its potential for journalism.
“For three and half years, we had studied the feasibility of operating a private frequency on satellite. However, when this opportunity presented itself, we took it. The private frequency, is now a long term project,” the CEO told Addis Fortune.
At this time the channel is working on 12 programs with different structure and content. The programs include psychology, law, music and drama.
Although Kidus and his colleagues have different educational and career backgrounds, this is not their first foray into the media.
