Nigerians to pay N2 per channel as TSTV plans to relaunch operations on October 1
Nigerian pay-TV service TSTV has announced a return to operations on Thursday, October 1, 2020.
TSTV which had earlier suspended its services after suffering a series of management and acquisition issues in its first run said it is restarting its pay TV service on October 1.
TSTV first launched in 2017 but was closed down the same year after failing to meet up with its promises to customers.
With the new promised resurrection, the indigenous pay-TV service said it has rolled a new pay-per-view subscription model to customers, meaning you can pause your subscription and restart it whenever you like. This would make TSTV the first indigenous digital satellite television to offer a pay-per-view model of subscription to its customers.
The provider also confirmed they have secured rights to broadcast more entertaining channels and will be showing all the major football league matches on its platform, including UEFA and La Liga.
The managing director of TSTV, Dr Bright Echefu said: “TSTV has done a lot internally to rebuild trust and is competitive enough to deliver value and content to Nigerians.”
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, Echefu said TStv has over 100 channels that will be made available for as low as N2 per day and as high as N5 for a channel.
“We are going to be the first to implement pay-per-view. What TSTV has done is, allow you to create your own bouquet and you have channels that are as low as N2 per day,” he said.
“If you have a N50 voucher, you are actually watching TV and saving your money.”
