Where to buy TSTv

Like I said, This device will be sold at ₦5,000 for both decoder and the dish.

They have updated their website and dealers have been added to different states in Nigeria. All you need to do is visit TSTv official website (www.tstvafrica.com/wheretobuy.php) to find out the list of dealers and addresses depending on your state.

My verdict:

Dear Nigerians let us support TSTv to give DStv a good competition.

I don’t know if Telcom Satelite Tv will be another HiTV but when they launch, I am definitely buying it. If for nothing else, to contribute to shaking up DSTv a bit.

Buy Naija to grow naira!!!

Join me today as I say Goodbye to DSTV.

But I really want to know what you think about this pay TV… Acknowledging that it is straight out of Naija, are you going to ditch your GOtv, DSTv or Startimes to buy the cheap TSTv?

  1. I will like to advise TSTV to try and add MITV Nigeria, Lagos television and channel 10. reasons, RAMADAN will start next month and you know the population of muslim in south west, this is where they are watching muslim program during Ramadan and after. The 3 station covered much of religious activities. LTV carry much of LAGOS NEWS,because when you are living in Lagos you must know what is going on within, like [new law, do and don’t, development etc].

    • This is Naijaknowhow and not TSTv technical support. Please visit tstvafrica.com for more insight. I doubt if there will be a decoder that supports an antenna for now. Maybe later though.

  2. My own is that I want DStv to go kpam kpam, at least let support our own product. The channels and the amount are OK. But no increment abeg. I am right there…

  3. Am totally in support, let us welcome our own and also let our own live up to expectations we can’t wait this long not to get it right!!!

  4. Wow this is unbelievable, finally the real competition has arrived for DSTV, First of all i think this new TSTV might really succeed if well managed and if they have a well structured strategy especially in a pay tv market that is already dominated by multi-choice (DSTV),

    I’m definetly buying this TSTV asap before price goes up because of demand, their price is just on point and extra data on top is just confirm jara, what else could we possibly ask for.

    Multichoice own GOTV meaning multi-choice literally has a huge market share of both upper & middle class users,

    So i think Tstv strategy is just well thought out, Everybody brace yourself because pay tv is about to become like mobile phone network competition, and when there is competition the users enjoy more because of options,

    also i have to say this new company going with the name TSTV is just not a good idea, i mean if you say TSTV to 10 people 9 out of 10 will think you are talking about DSTV… Anyways i wish them luck, because they will absolutely need it.

    • They have updated their website and dealers have been added across different states in Nigeria. All you need to do is visit TSTv official website (www.tstvafrica.com/wheretobuy.php) to find out the list of dealers and addresses depending on your state.

  5. I pray you guys just launch this package in a short while. Naija needs competition for life.
    Let me congrat you for a wonderful invention. This is what we need here especially in the area of Nepa and there cheating nature. Congrats

  6. want to know how many English premier league those the sport station show in a match day,also what happens when i don’t finish my sub in a month….which of the sports station shows the Premier league and champions league

  7. To me, it doesn’t make any difference if duration to the usage of data is attached. Using 20gig for a month of paying 3000 for a whole month to enjoy the pay tv is not different from others.
    If only, the data can be used until you exhaust the data completely, I’d believe it is different from others.

    • I seem not to understand you.

      Let me make it a bit more clear. If you buy 3k plan, you will get:
      1. Complete TSTv bouquet and
      2. 10GB of data

      Nothing concerns your data and channels. Your data is a bonus on your subscription, so you can use it to browse on all your device (Android, PC, iPhone etc).
      I don’t know if this is a bit more clear? Cheers.

  8. This sounds too good to be true. I have checked the TSTV website but I have not found anywhere to buy the decoder or subscribe to their services. It also appears that they don’t yet have a contact phone number. Indeed, it will be amazing if TSTV succeed where others have failed bearing in mind the HITV experience.

  9. Just (6) days to go. Cant wait. My question is. How much of EPL matches will TSTV be showing? Or is it Just 5pm matches on Saturdays that it will be showing? That’s the rumour making rounds. Please clarify.

  10. Hope it wont be like Nepa o.
    Today full current
    Nedt week half current
    I mean hope if small wind blows
    It wont be scrambled like dstv.
    And to me thr name sounds so odd
    I mean of all names
    It was only ts
    They could come up wit.
    Jus like wen dstv started.
    Decoder only reads to stage 3
    Now decoder when turn off and on
    Decoder reads to stage 26
    Then price increment
    Hope we wont be scammed.
    I mean i get sick and tired of dstv repeating some dumb south african movie called comedy mechanic comedybor sonething like on mnet for close to one week plus.

  11. i have start campaign for you guys few weeks the news got me in my town n people already knocking my doors for where n how truth about it… please I need d company address here in Lagos or those in advertising section urgently to give them more area to catch audience n the market

  12. i cant wait to have this , this is a goodness i have already say back to dstv long time ago to free tv. but free tv is a disgrace i need something that will meet up with multi choice and i thing the tstv will be the answer

  13. Hope is not going to be naija thing. Tomorrow the price will change from 5000k to 7000k and 10000 etc nothing has ever remain the same here. Even the subscription too. How are we sure this will not a means of defrauding ! Just want to know

  14. This is awesome, but the problem here is how will one know when it gana be launched? Again hope it’s network will reach All States in Nigeria … eg Imo State (Owerri, Orlu etc)???

  15. A question please. Can i pair my laptop with the decoder wifi hotspot to use the 10GB or is the compatibility strictly limited to phones. Enlighten me please. Thankyou

  16. Am in for sure, I can’t just wait to not only switch over but to also do a strong marketing on this product. It’s really enough for DSTV. #teamsupportnaija.

  17. Hey, this is amazing! As u said Here it is not only for watching favourite stations, it also comes with Hotspot functionality that enables us to connect through our phone WiFi to its Hotspot. Thanks so much for sharing.

  18. Excellent… No more data subscription. Na to be subscribing for 10mb… d network will be superb. Mtn,glo, airtel… all of den will feel d heat…. dstv, pack ur load.

  19. I appreciate this development a lot. Look guys, I”m not only waiting for a stiff competition with DSTv rather I want to see them out of the market. Enough is enough.

  20. Counting down, the most annoying thing with dstv is they never listen despite pleas from its subscribers to go on pay as you go , I cant wait to dump them.

Hey fam, don't go without a reply!
