In what seems unrealizable, StarTimes shocks Nigerians with its Pay-As-You-View offer that launched in 2017 with an applaudable review and additional commendable programmes in 2020.

DSTv, a leading Satellite cable TV service from Multichoice in Nigeria and across Africa is still hell-bent on the review of its subscription packages to accommodate the ‘Pay-As-You-View’ offer despite many calling for it and National Assembly threatening to cut off its services in the country.

Recall that as far as Pay-As-You-View? TV subscription is concerned, Nigeria has not benefitted from it until StarTimes full-fledged in 2017, but Uganda and Zambia have longed been enjoying the privilege since 2014.

With yearnings for this offer, here are the reasons why Nigerians might consider StarTimes over DStv or Govt.

1. IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON NIGERIANS

The COVID-19 pandemic that struck in the country hit about 10.8 million average Nigerians and it greatly affected their income. With about 21% of staff retrenchment. This could only mean that many will prefer to cut cost, especially frivolous spending. So, if StarTimes can offer the same service at a more convenient fee, people will definitely shift.

2. ADDITION OF FASCINATING CHANNELS

StarTimes have added some other programmes that DStv and GOtv combined do not have, they are ST School Junior, ST School Senior that will deal with the virtual tutorials on various subjects including Mathematics and English; Human Right that will be featuring programmes on how people can take up cases when injustices arise; Sky News, a few to mention.

3. OFFER THE CHEAPEST BOUQUET 

The cheapest bouquet of DStv is DStv Padi at N1,850 with about 40 channels while that of StarTimes is Nova bouquet for N900 with about 58 channels and can be paid for daily, meaning that one can pay N30 daily to get connected.

4. AFFORDABLE DECODER WITH SAME SERVICE AS OTHERS

Getting a StarTimes decoder plus antenna costs N7,500 while that of DStv with dish receiver is N18,500 and GOtv is N10,799 with antenna and HDMI wires.

The aforementioned facts are particularly pinpointed from customers reactions and are subjected to either happen or not. This is clearly a review or better still, prediction.
