AREWA24 is a 24/7 Free-to-air, Hausa-language Satellite Television channel launched in Northern Nigeria on Nilesat. The project was started in 2013, sponsored by the United States Department of State with funding of about $5,900,000-$6,500,0001) and is run by Equal Access International, a 501(c)(3) international development and communications organization committed to changing the story for youth, women and men around the world.2). AREWA24 aims to produce TV content by Nigerians for Nigerians in Nigeria. This 24/7 entertainment and learning channel will celebrate the cultures, youth, families and diverse communities of northern Nigeria.
Some examples of programming include:
The TV channel will also engage viewers through complementary, interactive media elements: a website with associated mobile phone applications, SMS text messaging, and social media to further expand the channel’s reach, encourage cross promotion, and catalyze ongoing audience feedback and engagement.
Equal Access is excited about the promise of this channel and the platform it provides for programs that reflect the rich diversity of Nigerian life, culture and values. As the only full-scope Hausa language satellite TV channel locally produced by and for northern Nigerians, it will deliver entertaining and inspiring programming for youth, women and entire communities in a historically marginalized part of the country whose media sector has been slow to develop.
AREWA24 is already available to over 80 million Hausa speakers in Nigeria and West Africa through its Eutelsat satellite free-to-air broadcast, and on the Multichoice pay platforms as well as GOtv.3)
