Unveiling the first and the latest innovative Pay TV operator in Nigeria TStv Africa decoder to the public on 1st October,2017.
TStv Africa…connecting your world!
The venue was Sheraton hotels Abuja Nigeria and the Minister of information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed was present. TStv launch was a success unless that TStv was launched without sports channels. The post about TStv channels was proven true except the exclusion of Sport Channels that can broadcast live matches.

Although it’s a disappointment for me now that English Premier League, Laliga and Champions League is at its peak.
TStv offer pay as you view, wifi routing including 4G data speed.
Breakdown of TStv Launch
We shouldn’t be disappointed about the exclusion of Sport channels because TStv offer mouth watering feature which will be discussed.
- The MC did his job perfectly by keeping the guest alive and introducing the speakers.
- The Minister for information, Former minister for aviation Mr FemiFanii Kayode, some artist were present.
- They introduced some entertainment channels like “Hits tv”, M Africa, gande movie and so on. but there was nothing like “bein sports”, “fox sports”, “Euro Sport News”.
- A notable staff from Nigerian broadcasting commission addressed the crowd and made a mistake of mentioning “Dstv” instead of tstv. Don’t blame her its one of those things, everyone is used to the SA giant
- The minister congratulated the Chief Executive Officer ( CEO ) of the company , Dr Bright Echefu , and his team for liberalising and breaking the monopoly of Pay TV in the country .
“ The important thing about what Echefu has done today is that he has redefined the pay per view television industry and from today that industry will never remain the same again .
“ What he has done is to democratise the media and entertainment industry and make it possible for even a peasant farmer to have access to the best entertainment and news in the world .
“ It is a great opportunity for me to be the one to unveil TStv because just like a Nigerian made history by crashing the cost of telephony in Nigeria , I am glad that another Nigerian is now coming forward to crash the cost of Pay TV ,” he said.
Factors to Consider Before Buying Tstv decoder
1. There are no negatives about this revolutionary platform even if they do not offer sports channels that will broadcast EPL. Guessing they focus more on cheap data and entertainment. Guessing Sport channels will be added later.
2. Also, the internet services of tstv might precede the proper functioning of their satellite services. There is a leaked video on youtube to this effect. Kindly click this link to watch the youtube video
3. Similarly, Tstv is not yet available in commercial quantity as at the time of publishing this article The 3rd of October, 2017. Please do not make any advance payment to any person or group although their are outlets where you can purchase Tstv decoders.
4. Furthermore, there is currently no channels that belong to tstv showing on Abs3w. Let us hope they are working on it. No channels at launch. This is weird
5. TSTV Subscription Fee is a low as N200, N500, N1000, N1500 and N3000. Note that with TSTV, you don’t need to pay subscription monthly or periodically. You pay as you consume.
6. According to the information on their website, you can get additional data for #300 for 1gb. Isn’t that interesting?
7. You get the 20gb free only when you first buy the package. Subsequently, you receive 10gb on renewal of your subscription
8. Subscription for the Channels is quite different from the data plan for TStv. The data service is an added feature to TStv
TStv really threatened GOtv market which led to Gotv subscription promo. Although most people will be shocked by last of Sport Channels, we are hopeful that with time those channels will be added. What’s your opinion about TStv launch with no sport channels. Feel free to comment below.
