Viewers in northern Uganda are awash with excitement after Vision Group’s Urban Television (TV) started airing on channel 25.

Alex Otim, a former LC5 councilor with Gulu district local government said the coming of Urban TV was exciting and will provide wider information dissemination and all round media coverage to the people of northern Uganda.

“I have for the first time watched it here from about mid-day right in Gulu town and it is very clear with very good picture qualitie. This is very good. And this is the kind of thing we have been yarning to have a down to earth TV that shall help to portray many activities that take place in northern Uganda.

I appeal to our people in the north to use this chance to bring out all issues that affect our people through Urban TV. Big thanks to Vision Group and Rupiny for this expeditious growth in the media”, said Alex Otim.
