No pay-per-view plan in Nigeria, says Multichoice


Pay-television service provider MultiChoice Nigeria has described as untrue reports suggesting that it is about launching a pay-per-view service in the country.

The company’s position was made in a statement issued in Lagos yesterday.

A statement  explained that suscribers would have access to the epic Flloyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing fight on the DStv Premium package, while subscribers to pay television services in the U.S. would need to pay an additional $99 on Pay per view basis to access the fight.

This, said MultiChoice, demonstrates the great value DStv provides to its subscribers in Nigeria.

”During the briefing, it was clarified that Pay Per View is a pay television service whereby subscribers of a particular television provider can purchase additional sporting events to view over and above their normal subscription package and charges.   Furthermore, it was explained at the briefing that this service does not currently exist in Nigeria or anywhere else in Africa at the moment, but is being used in the United States and the United Kingdom,” the statement explained.

The company assured that its customers will receive direct communication should any new DStv service be offered in the future, adding that it remains committed to continuously providing world class content and  improved value to its customers at all times.
