DStv subscribers have called on Nigeria’sGovernment to enact a law to compel MultiChoice to introduce “pay-as-you-view billing’’ system.
They complained that they couldn’t continue to pay for the services not rendered by MultiChoice, the major distance-to-home service provider in Nigeria.
They said that Pay-As-You-Go billing on DStv would ensure value for the subscription.
In a News Agency of Nigeria report, one Mr Uzochukwu Nwafor, a businessman, said that MultiChoice was not considerate on how it was handling the issue of pay-as-you-view which a Nigerian-owned Paytv TStv is ready to launch on October 1, 2020.
“They need to put a regulation in place to help subscribers enjoy the money they paid to view the programmes.
“With that (pay-as-you-view billing), we can save some money, I see subscribing to DStv programmes as a waste of money; it does not happen abroad or even in South Africa, ‘’ he said.
Also speaking, a civil servant Mr Silvanus Nwankwo, said that the National Assembly (NASS) was supposed to look into the operations of MultiChoice.
“Many companies come to Nigeria and rip us off because our policies are not being implemented.
“Again, DStv does not have serious competitors and that is why the company is behaving as it pleases.
“The Pay-As-You-Go billing that telecommunications operators offer is supposed to be applicable to DStv,’’ he said.
A rival PayTv firm TStv launched its services October 1, 2017 in commemoration of Nigeria’s independence.
Nigerians were elated saying that MultiChoice’s monopoly in the pay TV business in Nigeria is over.
TStv, unlike DStv , operates pay as you go billing system.
TStv introduces the Pay-as-You-Consume model, an option other providers had insisted was not possible, arguing that they bought the contents they relay as a whole and not in bits.
The DTH pay TV, offers 200 rich blend of local and international channels and packages for entertainment, including news, sports, kids, health, etc.
