Today marks the day for the relaunch of TStv Africa and Bright Echefu, the chief executive officer of Telecomm Satellite TV. TStv has said the organization would be the first to introduce the pay-per-view model to Nigerians after disclosing it while addressing Abuja’s reporters on Tuesday.
“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.”
“Nobody has as many HD channels as we do. We are rolling out with about 108 channels. We are going to be the first in sub-Saharan Africa to implement H.265,” the CEO said.
“TStv has invested a lot in acquiring rights. Most channels are as low as N5 per day. As a gift to Nigerians, we are releasing one of our sports channels free for a year.”
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. He said La Liga would be free, but viewers would have to pay to view other football leagues, adding that about 18 states would be activated once they roll out their services on October 1.
