DStv And GOtv To Shut Down In June 2019
The Federal Government may have notified the management of MultiChoice the owner of DStv and GOtv that their operations in Nigeria will come to an end as their license expires in June 2019.
According to a letter that was issued to that effect on Tuesday by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation(NBC), states that 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’s DStv/GOtv 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 exchange from Nigeria by its parent company, South African MultiChoice DStv.
