Nigeria: DStv's Challenger, TSTV Concede To Ineffective Distribution In 2020
TSTV, the upstart satellite television company in Nigeria has conceded that it did not do well by its own expected standard with the distribution of the content it has promised the public. The company lays the blame for the disruption to its services on the #EndSARS protests.
Readers will recall that TSTV, which wants to position itself as the bonafide challenger to Multichoice DStv in the Nigeria satellite TV marketplace, launched a pay-per-view service in October 2020. And according to TSTV's CEO, Bright Echefu: "The EndSARs protests started in October as well, so the distribution of TSTV could not happen effectively the way we wanted it to be as we couldn't move around as anticipated.
"It was in November 2020 that we started going around the country and of course people who buy TSTV recorder have been enjoying it. I can tell you that we have also sold thousands of our decoders to Nigerians who now have a choice of options."
Bright Echefu also announced that TSTV had acquired the broadcast rights for some premium sports content such as the English Football League, La-Liga and the Euro Cup.
