  1. The N5000 for TSTV initial purchase includes a decoder, a dish and a remote control but excludes any installation service charge.

 

  1. TSTV Pay AS You Go pause service i.e. the ability to pause your subscription when not in use would be available to those that would go for the maximum subscription which is the monthly N3,000 package and you would only be able to pause subscription not more than 7 days, thereby allowing you 37 days at most for your monthly subscription. So don’t expect to use your 1 month subscription from January to December in the name of pausing or expect to user 1 day N200 subscription for 1 month.

 

  1. The first time you buy the decoder is the only time you would be able to enjoy up to 20GB of data as bonus, for subsequent full monthly subscription comes with 10GB of data and not 20GB as some of you might be thinking.

 

  1. TSTV has incorporated its subscription service payments into Quickteller the popular E-payment service in the country and just like DSTV, you would also be able to easily pay for your TSTV subscriptions through Quickteller.

 

  1. You would be able to buy extra 1GB data or above from TSTV at the cost of N300 for 1GB

 

  1. TSTV data allocation has nothing to do with watching of TVST channels but just a separate and additional offer to the entire TSTV concept or better still what you commonly regard as Value Added Service (VAS).

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said the new PayTV platform, TSTV, will enjoy a pioneer status with a three-year tax relief.

 

The Minister announced this in Abuja on Sunday night when he unveiled TSTV.

 

“Dr. (Bright) Echefu (TSTV Managing Director), you have come at a very good time because this government only recently granted a pioneer status to the Creative Industry and what this means is that you will be entitled to a three-year tax relief and all your investors will not pay any tax dividends,” he said.

 

Alhaji Mohammed said the unveiling of TSTV has totally redefined the PayTV platform and, by extension, the TV industry, through the provision of access to people in all segments of society to enjoy high quality entertainment.

 

“What Dr. Echefu has done is to democratize the media and entertainment industry and make it possible for all to have access to

the best entertainment in the world. Just like a Nigerian also made history by crashing the cost of telephony in Nigeria, I am glad that

another Nigerian is now coming forward also to crash the price of PayTV,” he said.

 

The Minister said the advent of Digital Switch Over in broadcasting in Nigeria has created a paradigm shift in the television industry, where

compelling contents will now attract viewership.

 

He identified lack of objective audience measurement mechanism as a key factor against investment in content production, but disclosed that his ministry is planning a workshop to address the challenge.

 

Alhaji Mohammed said the Creative Industry played a critical role, along with other non-oil sector players, in pulling Nigeria’s economy

out of recession, and that the government plans to develop the industry to contribute 5% to the GDP, as against its current contribution of 1.36% by 2020.

 

He commended Dr. Echefu for his courage of conviction and belief in Nigeria and pledged the readiness of the Federal Government to

continue to create the conducive environment for private sector investments to thrive.
