A new pay-TV known as Telecom Satelite TV Africa was launched on October 1st and this has got so many Nigerians talking.
Many Nigerians seem to be excited about the launching of the new decoder as the offers are mouth-watering and the bonuses are just irresistible.
According to the company, the decoder comes with 200 channels, web camera for video calls and 500 GB internal storage, free 20 gigabytes data bundle and Wi-Fi to its customers, pay-per-view, affordable subscription rates with a maximum monthly subscription of N3,000.
The Federal Government has granted TSTV tax-free operation for three years as a way of encouraging the company.
While many Nigerians are excited and optimistic about the new decoder, others remain sceptical about the sustainability of the offerings, considering the Nigerian business environment and how it had adversely affected other pay-TV companies in the past.
The satellite Television is owned by Bright Echefu.
See how Nigerians welcomed the news:
If TSTV disappoints after this much anticipation they won’t find it likely with Nigerians. pic.twitter.com/prtkc5vUKO

The least we can do as Nigerians is to support TSTV. We can not, i repeat, we can not allow it to die like HiTV.

DSTV is in trouble. They should start packing their loads already. TSTV is entitled to run tax free for 3 years! Good initiative by 🇳🇬 Govt

TSTV is owned by an Igbo man, Bright Echefu, & the FG just granted him a Tax Holiday.
The only people marginalized in Nigeria, are the poor

Viewing centres will hate this TSTV thing. It will lose them all their customers.
