The online TV bouquet, which was launched at Radisson Hotel in Ikeja, Lagos, on Tuesday, is available free of charge on all Smart TVs, set-up boxes, mobile devices, game consoles, over-the-top (OTT) media services.

Speaking at the event, Dele Oke, representative of RCCG, said the platform has over 100 premium channels available to viewers.

He also disclosed that OH Prime is the brainchild of the media arm of RCCG to take “the gospel of Christ to every nook and cranny of the world.”

Oke added that the platform would be offering “destiny-shaping media content” to reach audiences of all ages.

“After years of stagnation in the African TV market — characterised by modern-day slavery of media consumers to cable TV — our organisation quest to change the narrative and our finicky appetite for excellence sought out Danny Brooks Technologies as a worthy partner for collaboration. This is to facilitate the liberation of African consumers by birthing this non-stop entertainment hub,” he said.

“OH Prime is an initiative of the media arm of RCCG under the leadership of Pastor E.A. Adeboye, general overseer. Our passion is to take the gospel of Christ to every nook and cranny of the world, which is the mandate given to us by Jesus Christ. This is the sole aim of the birthing of OH Prime.

“We are excited to announce to the world the launch of OH Prime, offering over 100 premium channels to our global youth audience free of charge. Nigerian youth have wasted enough time watching pornographic and soul-corrupting reality shows on TV. We are intentionally bringing destiny-shaping media content alien to this market for all.”

On his part, Daniel Akintola, managing director of Danny Brooks Technologies, said that while OH Prime is Christian faith-based, it also offers programmes that everyone, regardless of religious leaning, can enjoy.

He also disclosed that the platform targets the youths — majorly offering several entertainments and “idea incubation” channels.

“We are catering for 57 platforms. For example, the millennials have the game console -X-box, Play Station — that’s already taken care of. We do not just want the youth to while away their productive time, so we are bringing in idea incubation at the comfort of their home and wherever they are,” he said.

“We have taken the issue of data penetration in Nigeria into consideration. Hence our forte for this platform is that we have already optimised all the 4K images of videos on this platform to adapt to whatever internet signal that each user of the platform has.”

He added that the OH Prime app is available for download on Google Playstore, Apple app store, Amazon, and other equivalents.
