i think they need more competition.. They are milking the people dry... Whatever happened TSTV the so called first NIGEIRAN owned tv provider
Tstv didn't succeed because it was over hype couple with the fact that it's competitor frustrated their effort. Multichoice still dominate the pay tv market because of some rights to air certain programs. The solution is halt multichoice from airing certain programs similar way mtn was.

bros this part I bold carry too much lie or do I say it's a mix up cos a new dstv got the HDMI out of box not gotv

For the main issue, A gotv decoder is design to receive signal of a certain resolution and data speed. Dstv is HD 720p while Gotv is SD 420p and most times less (240p)

so your Gotv with attached HDMI will never have the same feel and appeal of the dstv picture resolution cos you're only making the 420p resolution sharper not improved!

A dstv with AV - cord will still produce 720p but a bit dull to the face so basically your Tv connection adds little or no say on picture quality

if you wonder why can't they just make Gotv 720p ie HD
well the answer is simple, your antenna will be too tiny to encode the frequency being sent to the decoder so it's going to experience loads or picture glitches or cracking...
or I'll simply put that the quality of the channel stream was reduce so that the antenna will be able to recieve the sent signal, frequency from the transmission base...
(Mehn! all these grammar even me don confuse cheesy)
ever wondered why super sports 3 etc are not on gotv or are renamed super sport select 1,2,3,4,5?

well these are all lower resolution Supersport channels


but dstv and gotv share similar channels and these channels basically have same resolution like
Am epic etc
but Gotv will never have AM urban or AM showcase...
i did not want to comment on this issue before,but your post made me change my mind! You are absolutely wrong bro.
Go and google search dtd/dvb technology,that is what most advanced countries are using now,us,uk,france.. And that is what gotv is using,gotv can coveniently use even 4k,but you know multichoice are stingy people,even till now,their decoders dont have internet capability(they can do it,but they wont!)..
Dtd/dvb uses 4k and even have more tech than satellite base,just research more on the internet, i use both dstv and gotv,and both have the same clean and crisp pics,some dont know how to do picture settings in their remote,they now end up blaming gotv,my tv is sony with 1080i,and my gotv use it well.

so am wrong because gotv Nigeria decided to reduce the picture resolution to 420p or dstv to 720p?
yet you say they are stingy in using the tech? I don't get where exactly the negative address is coming from. if truly you use dstv, you'll realize that some channels have the HD attached by its side... so your signal isn't 100 percent strength it won't work...! so how am I wrong sir? now am so bothered you decided to respond to the thread only to say the same tin I said but claim am wrong? no make me vex oh

you said gotv terestrial strength cant receive picture format above 480p,only the satellite dish can! Read my post well na,dvb technology is being used on terestial in developd nations,and its even in 4k,bro,gotv can use any picture format,dont devalue it by saying because its antenna,it cant..
Multichoice is only stingy

No update. I'm in your shoes too I upgraded my TV & the display of my old gotv on it looks so terrible especially when watching football. My own decoder doesn't have the hdmi. I want to know if switching to Dstv is worth it or just getting the gotv with hdmi

Is HDMI not just a cord you connect from the decoder to the TV?
vga is analogue form of transmission hence the signal degrades as bandwith(resolution) increases.

I dont know why you people talk down on Startimes when they run on HD too. For you information, I use Startimes Dish and have a DSTV too and I can be boostful of saying Startimes is HD too with crisp and very powerful image delivery. BTW. I use HDMI cable.


Many of you have dumped Startimes for a long period of time and there again , still come and relate expert judgement on what you have not used for years...... Startimes improvement is massive and the only laidback they have is not showing EPL and Champions league. Aside that, DSTV is arguably over rated and unarguably expensive
