A new exclusive free-to-air TV channel called SCOOORE HD was launched yesterday in Accra.

SCOOORE HD which is available on channel 151 of the HD+ Ghana direct-to-home (DTH) platform is the result of a partnership between SES HD PLUS Ghana, the country’s premium high-definition (HD) satellite broadcast service provider and the Sportainment Media Group.

According to the partners, the launch of SCOOORE HD follows a high demand by customers for a premium football channel.

SCOOORE HD which will operate as a 24-hour channel, targets fans of football from around the world at no extra cost to existing customers receiving the HD+ Ghana service.

The CEO of SES HD PLUS Ghana, Adelaide Abbiw-Williams said: “We are pleased to announce the launch of SCOOORE HD, a world-class free-to-air football channel created to connect football fans in typical Ghanaian homes more deeply with thrilling live matches from around the world.”

The CEO Sportainment Media Group, Gisbert Wundram said: “The cooperation with SES HD PLUS Ghana is a very important milestone for us in the expansion strategy of our Sportdigital football channel concept. We are all the more pleased that we have succeeded in taking this first step with SCOOORE HD in such an interesting TV sports market as Ghana and would like to thank all those involved in the project who have made this possible.“

The COO Sportainment Media Group, Bendix Eisermann, added: “SCOOORE HD will offer a buffet of highlights, delivering more than 400 hours of live football matches in 2023 including the German Bundesliga (1 Top-Match per Round), DFB Pokal (German Cup) and the Portuguese League as well as the Argentinean League and Cup. In addition, news, and insights from the top international tournaments in high-definition picture quality.”

Further commenting on this new value offer, Madam Abbiw-Williams said: “HD+ is the first TV service in Africa to introduce the SCOOORE HD channel and we are pleased about the excitement this channel will bring to Ghanaian homes, especially, active HD+ Ghana customers who are looking for premium football content in HD quality.”

HD+ Ghana offers compelling features such as the PVR function on the HD+ Ghana Decoder; the ability to watch TV on the go with free data every month; control to catch up on shows aired in the last 48 hours on the My HD PLUS mobile app; the first 4K channel in Ghana; as well as the introduction of a multi-feed function to allow active HD+ Customers to choose between two live video feeds on a single HD+ Ghana channel.
