TStv is short for Telcom Satellite Television. The name indicates that the TStv company uses a hybrid technology which combines both satellite and telecom (internet) services to offer TV broadcast to its consumers.

Who Owns TStv?

Telecom Satellite Limited, a registered company in Nigeria, is the sole owner of TStv. The CEO and Managing Director of TStv is Bright Echefu.

The company and Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS) have a multi-transponder agreement under which ABS-3A, Africa beam, which is in the prime video area of 30W, will provide a DTH service into Nigeria.

You are therefore accurate in claiming that TStv is a local TV provider who has come to save us from the negative effects of monopoly with the pay-as-you-go plan.

This is comparable to how Glo introduced per second billing (PSB) in response to MTN and Econet’s (now Airtel’s) denials that it was feasible.

When was TStv launch in Nigeria?

TStv was officially launched in Nigeria on the 1st of October, 2017 (Independence Day).

In Nigeria, the subscription prices are ₦200, ₦500, ₦1000, ₦1500, and ₦3000. Just like the way you make phone calls, you’ll not be billed unless you use the service.

This is the special pay-as-you-go feature that pay TV offers in contrast to the monthly subscription service provided by other providers, where you only pay for the services you actually use.

You have temporary access to watch all channels with every subscription. Depending on your membership, the time changes.

To take use of its 4.5G network, TStv also gives its customers 20GB of free data and then 10GB of data each month for just 3000. It’s fantastic news that you can use WiFi to link your phone and laptop.

I only hope that the network will be strong enough everywhere.

This monthly data is extendable on demand, according to TStv. If I get this right, it indicates that the service is not required. Just if you want to.

Are you reflecting about it in comparison to MTN, GLo, 9mobile, and Airtel data plans? 10GB for 3000 is affordable right?
