In this post, I’ll share with you how to become TStv decoder distributor in Nigeria, where to buy TStv decoder and how you could enjoy pay-per-view.
Remember, on October 1, 2017, TStv Africa was officially launched, the Federal Government granted the new pay Television operator, a three-year tax relief, but had some challenges along the way. It’s back and better.
Is Tstv still active?
After its launch in 2017, it faced some challenges and went under, but on September 29, 2020, the CEO said the PayTV is making a come back by October 1, 2020
Bright Echefu promised that it’d be launching Pay-Per-View model in Nigeria as DsTV does in South Africa.
He said Telecomm Satellite TV (TStv), would be the first to implement the pay-per-view model with over 100 channels that will be made available for as low as N2 per day and as high as N5 for a channel.
“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,” Echefu said.
What does the pay-per-view mean for Nigerians?
According to TSTV CEO, “If you have a N50 voucher, you are actually watching TV and saving your money”, saying TSTV has much high definition (HD) channels than other competitors in the market.
He was quoted by TheCable as saying, “Nobody has as much 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”.
How does it plan to achieve Pay Per View?
Pay per view isn’t a miracle from heaven, it is possible, DSTv which a South African PayTV offers the same service to its South African customers, unfortunately, it said the same service isn’t possible in Nigeria.
TStv which is owned by a Nigerian says it is possible saying, “Telecomm Satellite TV 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.”
According to him, La Liga would be free but viewers would have to pay to view other football leagues while 18 states would be activated once they roll out their services on October 1, 2020.
…Seeks NBC support
While warming up for a re launch, Bright Echefu seeks the support of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).
Reacting, the Acting Director-General of NBC, Armstrong Idachaba, said, “We promise on our side that we will continue to support you.”
During launch in 2017, TStv founder Echefu had said that TStv Africa was birth to liberalise PayTV in the Nigeria in order to make it affordable to every Nigerian with added values.
“subscription runs as you watch and It has the facility to pause your subscription when you travel”.
The CEO said TStv came with PVR (Personal Video Recorder) Decoder which allowed viewers greater control over their viewing experience with functions like pause, rewind, forward, save and record of programmes of interest.
Echefu said that once you subscribe to TStv, you will also get complimentary internet service, enabled Wi-Fi, as well as video calls and video conferencing services.
“It has an array of amazing TV channels with premium entertainment, educative programs that cut across all genres.
“The genres included, News, Music, General entertainment, documentary, movies, religious, sports, health, kids, fashion and lifestyle that better define the uniqueness of Nigeria’s diverse culture and traditional values,” he said.
Advantages of TStv over other PayTV in Nigeria
- Designed with Nigerian masses at heart
- Pay Per View feature
- Personal Video Recorder Feature
- Pause feature
- Opportunity to forward programme
- Ability to record programmes
- Enabled Wi-Fi
- Video calls and video
- Conferencing services
1) TStv subscription is affordable. It has 70 premium channels model with maximum subscription fee of N3000, making it the cheapest in Africa.
2) TStv is designed with Nigerian masses at heart, says the founder Echefu. This means that is not classified, and it has a model that accommodate subscription as low as N200 as N500 for a period of time.
3) It has Pay Per View feature. This means that you can pause your subscription when you travel, or when you’re not around. This operates like a pre paid meter. You only pay for what you watch.
Unlike other operators once you subscribe whether you watch or not your recharge will continue to run even when you travel for days. TStv has this advantage over others.
4) TStv comes with PVR (Personal Video Recorder) Decoder.
5) The PVR feature allows customers to pause whatever interesting programme they are watching. You’ve got an unavoidable issue to attend to within minutes? Yes this feature allows you to pause the programme and continue from there when you’re back.
6) The PVR feature also gives customer the opportunity to forward his programme. This means you can forward a movie series you’ve watched before to other interesting things you want to see again.
7) Not just that TStv’s PVR also gives the customer the opportunity to save and record programmes of his interest.
Recording of programmes of interest by customer is a great feature, but we hope that the issue of copyright will not be tampered with.
8) Another advantage of TStv over others is its complimentary internet service, enabled Wi-Fi, as well as video calls and video conferencing services.
TStv deserves commendation for this.
9) It has an array of amazing TV channels with premium entertainment, educative programs that cut across all genres that better define the uniqueness of Nigeria’s diverse culture and traditional values.
