Pay TV provider, TSTV has announced a relaunch of its service into the Nigerian Pay TV market.

This time, TSTV, which went under as a result of stiff opposition and competition from DSTV and others, said it is now back and direct with  a successful acquisition of FIVE units of 35.5MHz transponders last two weeks on Nigcomsat.

“Through our collaboration with Intertel, Federal Ministry of Communications and Nigcomsat, TSTV can now offer Nigerians the true meaning of video entertainment. Our TSTV has successfully migrated to Nigeria Communication Satellite. ALL CHANNELS in Full HD. No one does that. More channels are being added daily,” it announced in a statement signed by Bright Echefu, MD/CEO TSTV Africa.

In appreciation to its customers, TSTV have decided that 45 TSTV PREMIUM HD CHANNELS will be available for free for another one month as the company does not intend to encrypt the channels now, stressing that customers can use any dish at all, including the ones they are using for other operators to track Nigcomsat today and lets enjoy premium entertainment together.

“We are now a True Nigerian Brand and we all should support ours. Kindly monitor our progress by tracking your dish to 42.5oE, Frequency 12589, Symbol Rate: 30,000. Polarization: Horizontal,” the statement added.

Speaking on the challenges the company has faced in the past, Echefu narrated that from the date it announced the launch of TSTV, it has been fighting all the way. “I doubt if a week passed without us quenching one fire or the other. We didn’t anticipate that there would be war. We were also not trained to fight in the arena, we were pushed into. The kinds of weapons our enemies would later contend us with, showed they had stocked their armory waiting for a time like now. We may not have their kind of money, neither their kinds of weapons, ”connections” and networks, but one thing I sure know we had more than them was a determined spirit and a steadfast God. A God who doesn’t fail.

“It has not been easy one bit. Our struggles drained us financially and pitched us against all good meaning Nigerians, subscribers and dealers that believed in us. We were wrestled even down to our satellite providers but our God is ever faithful.”
