The management of the TStv, a local satellite television network, has rolled out pay-per-view services in 18 states in the country.
The pay-per-view according to the management of the indigenous satellite TV network will be launched on 1 October, 2020 to mark the country’s independence day.
Three years after its first roll-out, the company has concluded plans to relaunch its services with a pay per view model as low as N2.00 and as high as N5.00 for a channel per day.
Addressing newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja, the Managing Director TSTV, Bright Echefu assured Nigerians that the Pay TV has rebuilt its brand to deliver the same value and content earlier promised in 2017, but in advanced technology and model beneficial to all.
According to him, the company since 2017 went back to the drawing board to address all lapses to give Nigerians value for money and that while services will begin in 18 states on October 1, the remaining states will enjoy services from October 10.
“While we were off the radar, we properly studied the business and we have created a model to fit every Nigerian’s desire. We have created the pay as you view model where Nigerians will pay only for the channels they want to watch.
“Nigerians will be able to choose their bouquet by themselves, by choosing only those channels that they want to watch and pay for with a minimal amount per pay; 108 channels are available on our platform and more than 80 of them are High Definition (HD),” he said.
Echefu also said that as a gift to Nigerians for their steadfastness and understanding, the company had made the Grande Sports Extra Channel and some other local channels free to all Nigerians for one year.
While saying that Nigerians would be able to enjoy the ability to pause the decoder when not in use for a long period, he however, said that to safeguard against abuse, genuine reasons must be given for pausing the services.
