Kanayo O. Kanayo, Nollywood actor, who is the principal character in Globacom’s TV drama series, Professor Johnbull, will go head to head with highway miscreants in the  first episode of Season Four of the programme which airs at 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The telecom operator said the episode entitled Point and Kill would be broadcast on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes.

It will highlight the evil deeds of highway criminals who pretend to be good Samaritans only to cheat commuters of their hard-earned money and valuables. 

Globacom promised viewers that the new season of the Series “is as hot, hilarious and didactic as all the seasons before it”.

“We want to assure the viewers of Professor Johnbull, which has been rated as the “rave of the moment programme” on the Network service of NTA, that the new season will give them value for their time. The topics to be treated in the new season touch on the moral needs of a society like ours, giving all of us reason to go back to our valued cultures, traditions, and customs even as members of a dynamic global village”, the company stated.

It added that,  “Point and Kill deals with a very germane issue and its relevance lies in the fact that many  unsuspecting members of the public have fallen victims to the antics of these agents of harm who stand on the highway to raise false alarm with the intention of defrauding their victims”.

The regular characters in the series, Kanayo O. Kanayo, (KOK), his “son”, Churchill (Jnr. Pope Odonwodo), the restauranteur, Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso), the adventurer of the Series, Samson (Ogus Baba), Ufoma (Bimbo Akintola), and Abadnego (Martins Nebo) all feature in the new episode.

It promises to be an entertaining episode as the drama unfolds between Professor Johnbull and the fraudulent mechanics on the highway. Does the professor fall victim?

What happens to Olaniyi as he abandons the recognised motor park to ask for a lift on the roadside?  Will Samson’s street sense prove relevant when it matters most?

These are some of the issues to be resolved for viewers as they stay glued to their TV sets for the new episode on Tuesday. The repeat broadcast comes up at 8.30 p.m. on Friday on the same TV channels.

By Chike Onwuegbuchi
Pay-TV service provider, MultiChoice Nigeria, has dismissed fresh reports saying it is about to make its services available via the Pay-Per-View model.

In a statement issued in Lagos, the company said reports currently circulating and suggesting that it is about launching Pay-Per-View are unfounded.

“MultiChoice wishes to correct the news currently being circulated and states that at no time was it announced that a Pay Per View service was about to be launched,” said the statement.

The company explained that before the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing fight, it explained to journalists at a media briefing premium subscribers on its DStv platform would watch the fight as part of their package, while subscribers to pay television services in the USA would need to pay an additional US$99 on Pay per view basis to access the fight.

It added that should it decide to offer a new service in the future, the media and its subscribers will be directly informed.

DSTv, Startimes Panic as TSTV Unpacks PaSC, Data Bundle

By Agency Reports
As the commercial launch of TStv, Telcom Satellite TV, in Nigeria beckons, DStv/GOtv and StarTimes, and other pay TV providers, are believed to be troubled, according to Independent.

Their anxiety may have arisen from the new operator’s introduction of the Pay-as-You-Consume (PaSC) model and data bundle.

Other pay TV providers had consistently argued that the model was not possible to implement in Nigeria on the grounds that they bought the contents they relay as a whole and not in bits.

TStv will roll out its Pay-As-You-Consume plan on October 1, 2017, and industry watchers predict that it would win over a lot of customers from its competitors.

Analysts have expressed the hope that TStv would, indeed, redeem its promise of offering unique services, and thus break the MultiChoice’s monopoly in the business in Nigeria.

The move by the incoming operator is aimed at attracting more subscribers to their service, which is considered to have been tailored along the yearning of Nigerian pay TV customers.

When the new plan begins, it is expected to replicate the revolutionary feat Globacom made in the telecoms industry through the introduction of per second billing (PSB).

Prior to the implementation of PSB by Glo, MTN and Econet (now Airtel) had insisted that it was not possible to operate the PSB until after seven years, but Glo made it possible immediately it hit the market in 2003.
