DSTV-GOTV: Senate Urge Federal Government To Direct All PayTV Operators In Nigeria To Pay-Per-View Subscription Mode

On Wednesday 30th of March, 2022 the Senate has raised the motion that the Federal Government of Nigeria should direct all the PayTV operators in Nigeria to introduce new system on pay-per-view subscription model.

One of the Senator, Abba Moro, who stirred up the point at the red chamber today, reveals that Nigerians were outraged by the recent push up on subscriptions introduced by Multichoice company owners of DSTV and GOTV.

According to senator Moro point, “MultiChoice Nigeria willfully and perpetually increases the cost of its bundles because there is no regulation whatsoever. Without recourse to the economic situation of the country, MultiChoice has again raised the cost of
#DStvNg and #GOtvNg bundles.”

However, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan submitted, “What #DStvNg is doing here, they can’t do it in many countries but here they do it & get away with it. So we need to have a public hearing. Our ad-hoc committee should be given the mandate to do a whole scale investigation.”

Thereafter further deliberations on the issue, the Nigerian Senate resolved to “Urge the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, and the Nigerian Communications Commission to direct all pay-tv providers to introduce a pay-per-view model of subscription against the month to month prepaid model presently in place;”

He added that “Direct all pay-tv service providers in Nigeria to immediately review their bouquet prices downwards in tandem with the prevailing reality of economic situation in the country; and establish an ad-hoc committee to further investigate this incessant increase in fees by #DStvNg in this country with a view to finding a lasting solution to it.”
