Go (usually stylised in all caps as GO) is a Euro Republican free-to-air television channel, it is owned by Go Media, a subsidiary of EuroMedia. It broadcasts programmes aimed mostly at the male 15-49 age demographic.

History

Pre-launch

In July 1991, Prime Television Australia acquired 34 UHA licences in the Euro Republics, covering all major cities and towns. The licences were purchased from United Christian Broadcasting International for approximately AUS$3.6 million. 

Launch

Prime Telelvision Euro Republics began broadcasting on 17 March 1992 at 6.30pm. It mostly screened classic UK programming, documentaries, sports and dramas aimed at the 30 plus audience.  Prime's terrestrial broadcast covers 65% of the population, although in October 1992, Prime was the first terrestrial channel added to the ET1 Satellite Service, potentially reaching the whole Euro Republics population. 

In February 1993, Prime entered into a joint venture with CBS and ABC to provide the Euro Republics with CBS’s primetime programming, timeshifted (TV3 had FOX rights, while ETV had NBC). This enabled Prime to screen quality American programming as well as first-run movies and shows from the USA. This completely changed the lineup of Prime, now appealing to a broader demographic. By November, the deal had been extended, with companies like Thames Television, Nine Network Australia and Paramount (who were to soon launch their own TV network) joining the joint venture.
