TSTV Africa has announced ahead of its re-launch on October 1st, 2020 that it will introduce pay per view model making it possible for Nigerians to pay as low as N2 and as high as N5 to watch a channel per day by loading their TSTV vouchers.
This was disclosed by the Managing Director TSTV, Bright Echefu who assured Nigerians that the Pay TV has rebuilt its brand to deliver the same value and content earlier promised in 2017, but in advanced technology and model beneficial to all.
According to Echefu, TStv has over 100 channels that will be made available for as low as N2 and as high as N5 for a channel per day.
“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. If you have a N50 voucher, you are actually watching TV and saving your money.”
Echefu said no other organisation has as much high definition (HD) channels as they do.
“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,” the CEO said.
“TStv 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.”
He said La Liga would be free but viewers would have to pay to view other football leagues, adding that about 18 states would be activated once they roll out their services on October 1.
While noting that TSTV subscribers would have to purchase new decoders at an amount to be revealed at the relaunch, he said old decoders could be swapped for the new decoders at an amount also to be disclosed on October 1st.
