|NBC Orders DSTV To Suspend New Tariffs by wonuks(m): 5:53am On Jul 02, 2020|
The Acting Director General of Nigerian Broadcasting Commission, NBC, Mr. Armstrong Idachaba, yesterday ordered the management of MultiChoice, to suspend the implementation of its new hiked tariffs on different bouquets on its Digital Satellite Television, DSTV.
Besides, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, also disclosed Federal government’s plan to break the Sporting rights monopoly of DSTV.
The duo spoke at the National Assembly, while briefing members of an Ad Hoc Committee looking into the hike in tariffs.
“I want to agree, with the Committee and call on DSTV to suspend the hike in tariffs”, Idachaba, said when pushed by the Committee.
Earlier, Mr Mohammed told lawmakers that he already signed a code to break the monopoly of MultiChoice in the country, saying “our amendments to the Broadcasting Act, will affect the break in the monopoly of MultiChoice. Amendments to Section 628 of the Broadcasting Act, is in our broad national interest.”
Chairman of the House Ad-hoc Committee and other lawmakers who quizzed the Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed on the new payment template issued by Multichoice for payment of DSTV subscription, decried the high cost of tariffs.
He said the House viewed the increase in the price of subscription of satellite television on the Pay As You Go system as an affront that must be immediately suspended.

Yeye dey smell, this is a company that knows how to rub palm wit the govt, befr you realise it now, govt will change tone and support them. If NBC and Nigeria senate are serious, they should first ask them to change to pay as you view.

Story... U were there wen d price hike was announced.. They even announced it a whole week before implementing it but wat did U do ? Nothing.. And now U are making noise about suspending d hike weeks afta it has been implemented.. Talking about breaking monopoly, what is stopping other cable companies from bidding for their own broadcast rights?
