|Dstv Thieves by Obi1kenobi(m): 1:58pm On Aug 08, 2015|
Has anyone else observed that they have now made Supersport 5 their main Premier League channel instead of Supersport 3? This means those of us who subscribed to Compact Plus bouquet will be left to feed on the scrap matches because the bouquet is not inclusive of SS 5. All this despite all the recent increases in their subscription charge?
How much longer will our useless authorities keep colluding with this greed?

Here we go again..
|Re: Dstv Thieves by awesome4: 2:06pm On Aug 08, 2015|
Dstv is so annoying
|Re: Dstv Thieves by Obi1kenobi(m): 2:24pm On Aug 08, 2015|
You can't entirely blame the greedy thieves. When the regulatory commision are incompetent, it's no surprise all these firms keep taking us for a ride.
Now I have to squeeze out money for the Premium bouquet to enjoy the Premier League. Well done, DSTV.
|Re: Dstv Thieves by sexy74(m): 2:37pm On Aug 08, 2015|
Obi1kenobi:why spending so much go for CTL where u watch all matches, premier league, Spanish league , Italian and so much more in sports.
subscription 3150 per month.
|Re: Dstv Thieves by lymelyte(m): 2:38pm On Aug 08, 2015|
sexy74:please how can I go about this ctl stuff?
|Re: Dstv Thieves by clefstone(m): 3:33pm On Aug 08, 2015|
Obi1kenobi:I noticed it too. Infact, I hv been waiting for a thread on this since I noticed it this morning. God knows that I will never subscribe higher than compact next month unless they reverse this bullshit
|Re: Dstv Thieves by imatejammer: 3:57pm On Aug 08, 2015|
I only noticed this just before the Man U/Spurs match...223 was showing a Championship match.Had to watch the Man U match on the internet. I stumbled on this article from a Zimbabwe newspaper that says Channel 223 will no longer show EPL matches:
It seems it also applies to Nigeria Compact Plus subscribers( after paying N9,420)
Very dissapointed with DSTV!!!!!!!!!!
Alternatives! Alternatives!! What is this CTL thingy?

What of Q Sat
|Re: Dstv Thieves by Nobody: 4:28pm On Aug 08, 2015|
|Re: Dstv Thieves by imatejammer: 4:31pm On Aug 08, 2015|
Just got a mail confirming that 223 will only show 60% of live matches:
"Please be informed that Most EPL matches would be aired on SS5NI.
In order to catch all the exciting moments in football this season, kindly upgrade to our N13980 Premium bouquet.
However, we would air about 60% of the Live matches on our N9420 Compact Plus bouquet on channel 223 (SS3NI).
Thank you for your patronage and understanding."
|Re: Dstv Thieves by Obi1kenobi(m): 4:38pm On Aug 08, 2015|
60% for where? This weekend, they're only showing 2 matches out of 10. Unless theymean they'll show some replays. They're certainly not showing 60% of LIVE matches which is what matters.

What's the CTL stuff
|Re: Dstv Thieves by sexy74(m): 5:49pm On Aug 08, 2015|
inspiratio:CTL ( communication trend limited) its a cable television provider.
they have offices in Abuja, Lagos port Harcourt, and some other states.
the decoder and antenna goes for about 15k and the monthly subscription is 3150 ( three thousand one hundred and fifty naira).
if you stay in Abuja there office is at opposite banex plaza wuse 2 it shares fence with the zenith bank.
check there website trendtv.tv
you are sure of your sporting entertainment at a cheap price.
A trial will deliver you fro DSThieves.
|Re: Dstv Thieves by AikayDaWrapper(m): 6:29pm On Aug 08, 2015|
How many channels do they have now
We used them about ten years ago in my house.

|Re: Dstv Thieves by ThaThinka: 6:45pm On Aug 08, 2015|
I am also having issues on GOtv - what upcoming guys like moi can afford. What I've found out is that these folks hardly ever respond to messages. How do you explain it when there are issues and no one will attend to you. You just pray you never have issues that require attention. The same is often the case with a good number of the mobile operators in the country. Talk about effects of corruption and carefree 'leaders.'
|Re: Dstv Thieves by 1wolex85: 7:51pm On Aug 08, 2015|
i am so mad right now, how can i pay 10k and they wil be showing championship football? this is madness, total madness. Abeg tell us more about this CTL
please can we have the contact of someone who can install the ctl stuff?
|Re: Dstv Thieves by tunapole: 9:43pm On Aug 08, 2015|
I thought am d only one in dis fix, how wil I cough out almost 10k and ended up watching championship matches. Was rushing down fron a serious engagement to catch up wf toteham vs man u match, ol boi I was dazzed wen dey didnt show it, worse stil was chelsea match too only to be disappointed again, I almost cried and I thought maybe its because la liga has not started yet thats why buh with dis updates of dre 60%stuff of ss3 showing epl got me cracking, wat do I do? Ctl is not accessible down here and raising extra 4k na wa oooo
|Re: Dstv Thieves by bakynes(m): 7:17am On Aug 09, 2015|
Pls give us Info on where the CTL office is located in Lagos and who can install it.
|Re: Dstv Thieves by Fuhrer(m): 9:41am On Aug 09, 2015|
Oga wetyn be dis? I just checked their website (trendtv.tv). There is nothing like football talkless of sports on their website. How do you expect us to believe what you are telling us now? Or you are merely using this opportunity to advertise CTL for inferior motives and benefits?! If not, please enlighthen us more biko.
|Re: Dstv Thieves by YRRAHERM(m): 9:46am On Aug 09, 2015|
Abeg why dis tread never make front page.
Dstv must go back to south africa.
How can I pay 10k and I don't get to watch premier League matches instead you are showing me championship. Me I am not going to pay any extra. How can foreigners come and exploit us in our own country.
The annoying thing is dat my dstv has been off all week,the only reason why I even paid was for the soccer, so I switched on the dstv on Saturday and saw the nonsense.well dstv thanks a million. All you have done is save me N240,000 a year (10,000*12)*2 cos I also pay for my dad's own.
Pending when any alternative comes up(hopefully CTL) I will return to the viewing centers
Football is after all more interesting when you watch In groups.
pls any suggestions for reliable sites where I can stream matches live.
God will punish the dstv official dat will call me and disturb me to subscribe after my current one expires.

Worst is that many of their customers were not informed about the new changes on time.
Now thats not how you treat customers!
|Re: Dstv Thieves by sexy74(m): 10:38am On Aug 09, 2015|
Fuhrer:you don't have the football and some other channels like mbc on the website what you have is more of the local stations.
why not go to their office and inquire.
I had the same doubt when I was told.
I have no clandestine motive, moreover I don't have any affiliation with them other than been a subscriber.
|Re: Dstv Thieves by Fuhrer(m): 12:01pm On Aug 09, 2015|
Ok thanks so much for making things clear and also for enlighthening us. I will try to look for their offices in lagos this week and return to inform others, so everyone can also get theirs too. Thanks so much man

|Re: Dstv Thieves by Nobody: 8:49pm On Aug 09, 2015|
thank GOD for this topic....
this thieves angered me this weekend
i thought i was d only pained one
DSTV MUST GO!!
|Re: Dstv Thieves by kel4soft: 11:14pm On Aug 09, 2015|
I used CTL while in PH, I don't think it is in Lagos perse. Infact you still have other alternatives like Metro and CAN at far lesser rate. Here in Lagos i am meant to spend 14k too for DSTV. I don't know why these coys re not operating in Lagos.
N/B: Most of their channels re not in HD and re normally arabic stations though have won dedicated English channel. For example BEIN Sports have the exclusive rights to air EPL in the Middle East and North Africa while DSTV (SuperSports) is for other African countries. CTL and their friends (Metro digital and CAN) with the help of technology subscribe to Bein Sports, then sells it to consumers. On whether CTL is doing this illegal, they claim they re not showing it live cos is 2seconds late.
