On Monday, TStv was relaunched into the cable market after going AWOL for a rather long time. Purported to be the necessary cable arch-rival to the monopolistic DStv, TStv enjoyed a fairly good support base. For many, TStv was the Messiah.
In an open letter written by the company’s managing director and CEO Bright Echefu, which I think it’s funny, TStv has successfully acquired five units of 35.5MHz transponders on Nigcomsat, and can now offer Nigerians the true meaning of video entertainment. Now take that, DStv!
Incidentally, a reported order from the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) against DSTv made the news, an injunction to stop them from hiking the prices of their cable service. On Twitter, the reactions from Nigerians have been mixed, with some willing to jump cable ship.
This thing is crazy. Do you people have to watch DSTV? If you cant afford it, why not just settle for GoTV or the revitalized TSTV under the guidance of abba father? Because I frankly dont understand the umbrage.

This TSTV guy refuses to give up, he just keeps digging in deeper and deeper… TSTV was a fraud when it was first announced , it’s a fraud in its current incarnation and till the business starts doing things legally vis-a-vis content acquisition, it shall remain a fraud.

I pray you get it right this time. Like an arsenal fan who gets disappointed all the time and still stands with the team, I stand with TSTV

“Today 20th of August, 2018, I am happy to inform Nigerians that TSTV is back live and direct but this time under the watch of Abba Father.”
