Multichoice, DSTV/GOTV To Shut Down June 2019 by KNEO777: 3:50pm On Feb 08, 2018
The Federal Government may have notified the management of MultiChoice DSTV/GOTV that their operations, in Nigeria, will come to an end in 2019 as their license expires June next year.

According to a letter to that effect issued, on Tuesday, by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation(NBC), the license issued to them in 2014 by NBC will not be renewed because it was not in line with Digital Switch Over (DSO) White Paper.

If Multichoice DSTV/GOTV will ever operate in Nigeria again after expiration of its license, the only option left for them is to go to licensed Signal Distribution company, that is Pinnacle Communications Ltd or ITS.



GOTV has been accused of being used as a conduit to siphon foreign exchange from Nigeria by its parent company, South African Multi Choice DSTV.

So they use back door to renew their license and they've been profiting from us, yet refuse to give PAY AS YOU USE, taking monthly salary on something we dont use often cos of stupid electricity we have, well am okay with not renewing their license, that is if they dont bribe the powers that be to prolong their license.
Stupid South Africans angry

This would be one the best news if it actually happens.

But let's just hope this is not a tactic by NBC to threaten them so they can increase their bribe money, till then, we wait!

Good riddance to bad rubbish. There is a great disparity on how much we paid here compare to south Africans using the same platform. We need a new company with better service.
