Multichoice, DStv/GOtv to Shut down Operation In June 2019

I don’t know whether I should call this a good news or a bad news but the latest update is that the management of MultiChoice which runs DStv and GOtv will end their operations in Nigeria come June 2019 as their license will be expiring by then.

According to a letter to that effect issued, on Tuesday, by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation(NBC), the license issued to them in 2014 by NBC will not be renewed because it was not in line with Digital Switch Over (DSO) White Paper.

If Multichoice will ever operate in Nigeria again after expiration of its license, the only option left for them is to go to licensed Signal Distribution company, that is Pinnacle Communications Ltd or ITS.

GOTV has been accused of being used as a conduit to siphon foreign exchangefrom Nigeria by its parent company, South African Multi Choice DSTV.

This will be an opportunity for our local TStv to try and up their game if they really wanna rule naija.

  1. They will probably sort themselves out before then.

  2. I dont think they will be shutdown, they only have to switch to the digital mode, thaz all.

  3. wonder shall never end…i can’t believe they will disappear from naija

  4. This is not a good news @all because if the multichoice is to shutdown by June its not going to be funny because it’s going to render many people unemployed, imagine been sack from work in this present situation in Nigerian…. This is will increase the rate of unemployment in Nigerian

    1. There’s no call for alarm, the issue here is about the digital switch over. Between now and June 2019, Dstv has more than enough time to do the needful. Most likely they won’t shutdown, you can bet on that. They’ll sort it out.
