I hope you guys still remember a Satellite Television Company, called TStv?

It is Nigeria’s first indigenous Direct-To-Home (DTH) broadcast service, launched on October 1, 2017. TStv has the ambition to rescue Nigerians from paying exorbitant prices to foreign operators, which is causing so much headache for other Pay TV in the market and this led TStv into serious conflict.

TStv still wants to prove that the dream remains alive on the minds of the promoters. Recently, TStv has sparked jubilations among Nigerians as they have taken to their Facebook page, to make a statement and announce their relaunch nationwide, all over the country.

Here is the full statement as TStv wrote:

TStv wishes to thank Nigerians for their patience and understanding over the past months. We apologise once again for all inconveniences and appreciate the steadfastness of all those who have stood by us.

We are now pleased to announce that TStv is preparing for a relaunch nationwide and as part of activities leading to the relaunch, TStv will begin test broadcast services from the 10th of September, 2020.

From tomorrow and through the next three weeks, anyone who has Free To Air decoders (including ours) can track the parameters below to join our broadcasts:

So, after the announcement was made, lots of Nigerians have reacted to the post, share their thoughts on it. It was in fact a mixed excitement, cheers, and words of support from Nigerians as lots of people await the relaunch of the company. Some were even of the opinion that “they can’t wait to throw away that DSTV useless decoder”.
