TStv made a promise back in October 2020 saying that it would be the first organization to introduce the pay-per-view model to Nigerians and yes, it seems as if they’re sticking to their word.
The Managing Director of the company, Dr Bright Echefu, who made the disclosure on Wednesday during a press tour of its facilities in Abuja, said the new subscription would see new users view all channels on its decoders free for the first one month and pay the maximum of N2 per channel in a day.
“Part of the things we promised to Nigerians is that we will offer them a pay-per-view subscription to give them what they want.
“We have a lot of channels similar to what they get from other operators, put all of that together, we expect them to have a new experience.
“Instead of using different bouquets to force subscribers to bouquets that are costly with variety of channels, they ended up not viewing, we are offering them to select the channels they want.
“Some channels are N1 and the highest is N2 per day.
“If you sum up these channels that interest you, it can be close to N50 a day.”
He added that the features also permit subscribers to pause the subscription when they are not making use of it.
“The good thing about what we are offering is the dynamism in the creative industry.
“You get to experience what we are doing in a different way and at the long run, the pay-tv is different and more enjoyable,” he said.
On its sustainability, he stated that TSTV had faced some challenges in its initial launch but the experience it gained gave it new insight on how to operate profitably.
“The government is backing us strongly to ensure that this brand succeeds because it wants to give Nigerians cheaper alternative to the existing pay-per-tv,” he added.
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. TStv decoders are available in different states, you get a location from here.
