MultiChoice, DStv/Gotv React to Operations Shut Down in 2019

Few days there was a report on  Multichoice to end operation in Nigeria by June next year as their license expires and will not renowned.

The license issued to MultiChoice in 2014 is not reportedly in line with the
Digital Switch Over (DSO) White Paper and that's why it wouldn't be renewed.

In an exclusive statement, MultiChoice says it complies with the regulatory requirements and applicable laws on TV broadcasting.

“GOtv is provided under a fully licenced and registered entity in Nigeria, and this license comes up for renewal in March 2019" the statement reads.

"As a law-abiding and committed Nigerian operator which has fulfilled (and continues to comply with) all regulatory requirements and applicable laws, it is not clear how or why this license would not be renewed, and as such the company will investigate further in the best interests of the many customers it serves in the market" it further says.

The statement adds that "MultiChoice remains committed to providing its customers with a wide variety of quality entertainment through the usual best standards."

MultiChoice entered into the Nigerian space in 1994. In 1995 it launched DSTV (Digital Satellite Television), a direct broadcast satellite service for the Sub-Saharan African market.

In 2011 MultiChoice launched the GOtv digital platform, a pay television offering on digital terrestrial television (DTT).
