As part of the digitisation of Nigeria and other African countries, China will provide Satellite television (TV) reception to 10,000 villages in the region in the next few years, as provided in the forum of China-Africa Cooperation.

The Vice-Chairman, Star Times Group, Ms Guo Zigi, who revealed this plan, said in the past seven years, the NTA-Star Time TV Network in Nigeria is currently visible in about 80 sites located in 34 states of the Federation, and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

She added, “In Nigeria, Star-Times and Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) are in joint venture since Star Times began operation in Nigeria.”

Zigi also said: “China will consistently help many countries in Africa including Nigeria, to receive Satellite signal, which will connect Africa to the superhighway of global information.”

She made the remark at the weekend at the launching/donation of Satellite TV Reception Facilities to Hulumi village in the FCT, Abuja.

“Information is power, this power unfortunately, is mostly available to people living in urban areas, because most service providers concentrate their energies on providing these services to areas where they are most likely to make maximum profits. It is now our mission to enable every African family afford Digital TV and enjoy its beauty,” she noted.

  1. Thanks for the various tips shared on this blog site. I have observed that many insurance firms offer customers generous discounts if they favor to insure multiple cars with them. A significant quantity of households possess several motor vehicles these days, in particular those with old teenage kids still living at home, and the savings in policies could soon increase. So it is a good idea to look for a great deal.
