Nigeria's Telecom Satellites TV (TSTV) To Launch New Direct-To-Home (DTH) Platform
A new DTH TV platform is coming to the Nigerian broadcasting marketplace, and this new platform is the brainchild of Mr Bright Echefu and his Telecom Satellites TV (TSTV) outfit.
Telecom Satellites TV (TSTV) has reportedly entered into a technical agreement with ABS (a Satellite services company) to provide it with transponders that will enable the cost-effective delivery of DTH broadcast services to the Nigerian market.
Reports from ABS indicated that the new service planned to commence on 25th July 2017 would be on the ABS 3A Africa beam (3 degrees west). The broadcast service, it is said, would have between 100-150 TV channels.
Mr Bright Echefu, CEO of TSTV expressed his delight at being able to provide 'premium video and broadcast service to Nigerians at prices they can afford'. He thanked ABS for their support.
ABS co-founder and CEO, Mr Thomas Choi hailed the new service as a real entry point for his organisation to play in the digital broadcasting landscape of Nigeria.
ABS is a new Satellite company owned by Primera funds.
