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.
