FG may force DSTV to charge per view

The Federal Government has disclosed plans to force the Digital Satellite Television, owned by MultiChoice, a South Africa-based cable service provider, to provide pay-per-view options to Nigerian subscribers.

The government also said it has amended Nigeria’s broadcasting code to prevent DSTV from monopolising its channels and contents.

This is just as the House of Representatives ordered the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission to ask DSTV to reverse its subscription rates introduced on June 1, 2020.

The House has been probing DSTV for allegedly cheating its Nigerian subscribers by restricting them to prepaid plans.


  1. Good decision by our government

  2. You guys don't get it.....
    Nigerians always face the wrong problem
    Dstv is not an essential product if you do not like it don't pay it is not by force

    Instead of asking the government why NTA is so bad at everything or why have we not complained about the price of fuel
