Increase In Chinese Propaganda in Nigeria Through DSTV by ChristoBam: 6:08pm On Apr 10, 2020
It's not news that Africans can be so stupid most times especially our leaders but I do wonder everytime how some obvious things that will be detrimental to us in the long run are happening right before our eyes and no one is paying attention to it. I used to believe in the Bible a bit and used to read it to know if there was a curse placed on any African country that's affecting us generally till today.


Let me start with this. In Nigeria almost everyone has a DSTV decoder. That's our major source of entertainment on TV. Some states don't have a functional TV station so if you don't have cable TV like DSTV, Startimes and the likes your Television will be practically useless. You'll agree with me that sometimes average Nigerians are not able to pay for subscriptions sometimes so we're faced with watching the free stations. What are these free stations? They are:
-CGTN( Chinese Global Television Network) for Chinese news and discussions.
-CGTN Documentary ( Chinese Global Television Network for documentaries)
-CGTN French( Chinese Global Television Network in French language).
-CNC ( Chinese news stations).

We don't get to watch our Nigerian TV stations like NTA, AIT, Silverbird and the likes but we're stuck with Chinese propaganda stations!! And this has been going on since I can remember. How the hell has this been going on and nothing has been done about it.

Trust me I've watched these stations really well and I can tell you they are filled with nothing but Chinese propaganda.
-They attack the US and the west with their news and interviews. If you watched that station for a month you'll have a distorted view of the world view.
-They portray Africa like a barren land with need of help from China to survive.
- They influence their viewers to view things whichever way the Chinese government wants them to. If they believe today that any African leader is not acting in the interest of China. They portray that leader in such a bad light. They do this in such a subtle way. This is very dangerous.

The most scary thing is that 95% of Nigerians don't subscribe regularly on their DSTV. So at one time or the other they have to watch these stations. This is very dangerous!!!

How is it that in Nigeria you can't watch local TV stations on DSTV for free but can only watch Chinese propaganda stations? How are Nigerians not enraged by this?

Those Channels are available all over the World you don't have to watch them.
Use your remote control.
If you want a balanced view listen to them all and read between the lines
How is Chinese propaganda worse than British or American prropaganda?
They even have a Hausa service?
There is no media that is neutral. They all have agendas
Al Jazeera' is not left out
NTA needs to internationalise
Propaganda is not only what you say but what you don't say. When deliberate efforts are made to keep out important stuff e.g war in Yemen,
It would be naive of you to believe those countries don't operate on this website trying to influence opinion

We know of the Israeli company that tried to influence our last election

Good one @o.p

Africans should start systematically uprooting them chinkos from our systems. We are over depending on them for almost evrything.

I fucking hate the U.S but China is never to be trusted bcuz to them we ain't even humans tlk less of being slaves.


Africans should learn to love themselves and stop looking for who accepts them more Asians / Europeans /Americans because like we've all seen these dayz when the chips are finally down its everyone for himself even amongst races its every country for itself.


If only the next generations of Africans will stop running out of Africa nd stand their grounds...fight and clutch back our countries from selfish and inferior leaders who refuse to improve to the level we will be independent of our colonial masters.

DSTV might have had agreements with those stations but our leaders should wake up to their responsibilities by getting a national TV free on all Nigerian decoders.

Imagine this period of lock down without subscription? How will the government visual messages reach out to the citizens

Bro you don't understand what he's saying. Those stations are the only free stations on DSTV. When you have no subscription, you have no option than to watch those stations. That shouldn't be. This is Nigeria not a Chinese colony.

An agreement needs to be made between Nigeria and DSTV for Nigerian local channels to be shown for free. The thing is looking as if these Chinese peeps are paying DSTV so no other station apart from their stations will be shown. And Chinese TV are known for their clear propaganda.

Can't NTA, Silver bird, Channels also pay for their viewers to be watching them free?

This is not about FG, DSTV or China this is purely business.

DStv is a scam, all stations except Nigerian stations repeat program every day.

I paid for the N4,500 subscription and I regretted it.

These are the stations notorious for repeating itself everyday.

Natgeo wide

Discovery channel

ID Xtra

Mnet Zone movies

BET

CBS reality

E!

National geographic

Food Network

Bloomberg and CNBC news have been taking away from Nigerian subscribers.


We're just wasting our money on DStv I swear. I've downgraded to N2000 access just for Nigerian channels like TVC, AIT, Arise news and Channels.

If you're paying N4,500 and above then your name is sorry.

Not one reason, just an inherent hatred.

Does it have something to do with 5G or religion?

I am not sure 5G can be transmitted via DSTV though.

As a patriot, you should dump DSTV and start watching our own NTA.

Pay them to show our local channels while they're making billions from the country viewers?

Well, that's the main issue, if what FG needs to do is to pay them, then they should be paid. It can't continue like this. This issue needed to be brought up.

Why should DSTV air anything for free?

What can you offer Nigeria to aid in its development?

I am waiting.

Maybe I will wait forever because it appears you are a religious bigot who can't
even tolerate your fellow Nigerians.
Yet, you are speaking about Africa as a whole, a land so dispersed that they have very little in common.

What an anticapitalistic rant.
What local channels?

If you are advocating for NTA, we will understand.
But I know you hate NTA like other people but you want DSTV to subsidize other
for-profit private stations.

If you love watching NTA, then you don't need DSTV, they are everywhere in Nigeria.

I've decided not to reply any funny comments on this thread though. Cuz so many DSTV agents will be out to rubbish this. So it's cool.

How do people reason in Nigeria

Go and set up your own station and do that

They are a business
There is no law stopping you setting up a station, if they are making billions then surely there is room for competition
So because Dangote is making billions he should start building free houses
