TV3 Network Limited (TV3 Ghana) is a private, free-to-air television broadcaster in Ghana which is owned by Malaysian media giant Media Prima. Launched in 1997, TV3 Ghana airs and produces a variety of television programmes including acclaimed news bulletins, dramas and successful reality television and entertainment shows, some of which are apparently based on Malaysian programmes aired by television channels under Media Prima. For example: TV3 Ghana Mentor was based on the TV3 Malaysia's singing competition, also titled Mentor. Media Prima claims that TV3 Ghana established itself as the most watched free-to-air television station in Ghana, having achieved 65% nationwide penetration at end-2006 and aiming to reach 90% by 2008. Media Prima is also expected to list TV3 Network Ltd on the Ghana Stock Exchange by the first quarter of 2008. However, TV3 has experienced major competition in the likes of Metro TV which has succeeded not only in broadcasting its network to all the regions in the country but it also struck a deal with South Africa's Multichoice allowing it to be broadcast throughout Africa. Despite this, TV3 remains popular for its showing of Mexican telenovelas, Japanese series and music as compared to Metro's sports.
