A new pay TV service TVST is already in town and launched on 1st October with lots of people already excited on everything about it.

Now there are lots of speculations going on how TSTV services would be delivered and we particularly noticed that many people out there don’t really understand the nature of services that TSTV promise and hence the wrong information been spread across.

For example when TSTS talks about pausing of subscriptions, the amount of data that would be actually allotted and what you can do with the data etc.

Six things to know about TSTV

Today we want to bring to you first-hand information on the 6 things that you should know about the new TSTV pay TV service that is slated for launching later in the day and before you start thinking of getting a TSTV decoder.

Without further ado, below are the 6 things you should know about TSTV before launching

1. The N5000 for TSTV initial purchase includes a decoder, a dish and a remote control but excludes any installation service charge.

2. TSTV Pay AS You Go pause service i.e. the ability to pause your subscription when not in use would be available to those that would go for the maximum subscription which is the monthly N3,000 package and you would only be able to pause subscription not more than 7 days, thereby allowing you 37 days at most for your monthly subscription. So don’t expect to use your 1 month subscription from January to December in the name of pausing or expect to user 1 day N200 subscription for 1 month.

3. The first time you buy the decoder is the only time you would be able to enjoy up to 20GB of data as bonus, for subsequent full monthly subscription comes with 10GB of data and not 20GB as some of you might be thinking.

4. TSTV has incorporated its subscription service payments into Quickteller the popular E-payment service in the country and just like DSTV, you would also be able to easily pay for your TSTV subscriptions through Quickteller.

5. You would be able to buy extra 1GB data or above from TSTV at the cost of N300 for 1GB

6. TSTV data allocation has nothing to do with watching of TVST channels but just a separate and additional offer to the entire TSTV concept or better still what you commonly regard as Value Added Service (VAS)

Finally, TSTV has launched and its decoder would be available from next week, but don’t expect them to be readily and easily available across the country at this period, for it would take some time for the TSTV decoder and services to spread round the country.
