Tstv Nigeria : Subscriptions, How To Activate, Channel List & More
TStv is a direct-to-home (DTH) pay TV provider that officially launched in Nigeria on the 1st of October, 2017 (Independence Day).
TStv is short for Telcom Satellite Television. The name indicates that the company uses a hybrid technology which combines both satellite and telecom (internet) services to offer TV broadcast to its consumers.
TStv Nigeria promises a lot new value added services that are already intriguing the populace. Everybody is talking about TStv Nigeria.
Some of the interesting things about TStv Nigeria include the ability to pause your subscription for up to 7 days in a month, PVR feature with up to 500GB built-in storage, Video on Demand, Video Calls, and free 20GB data.

Who Owns TStv?
TStv is exclusively owned by Telecom Satellite Limited, a registered company here in Nigeria. Bright Echefu is the Managing Director/CEO of TStv.
The company signed a multi-transponder agreement with Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS) to deliver a DTH service into Nigeria on ABS-3A satellite, Africa beam which is located at the prime video neighborhood of 3 ͦ W.
So, you’ll be correct to say that TStv is an indigenous TV provider that has come to rescue us from the downside of monopoly with the pay-as-you-consume plan. This is similar to the way Glo came with per second billing (PSB) when MTN and Econet (now Airtel) claimed it was impossible to operate that way.
TStv Decoder Price in Nigeria
The decoder (also known as Set Top Box (STB)) and dish is available for just ₦5000 and comes with numerous features.
The best part is you get 20GB free data bundle, which can be used for making video calls and surfing the internet by connecting your phone or laptop via Wi-Fi. This makes it serve as a modem.
You’ll also be able to record TV programs to its 50GB internal hard drive. If this space isn’t enough, you can connect your external hard drive for more videos.
The decoder allows you to connect to the internet, stream media, and access subscribed content. It also lets you browse content from Facebook, Twitter, video-on-demand sites, OTT apps among others.
It is designed in such a way that it can be used as a router that enables you to connect up to 15 people comfortably.
FEATURES OF TSTV
TSTv has so many features to serve all the fun you so much desire. Below are the list of its notable features:
- It offers pause and play: It simply means you will only be charged for what you use.
- With TSTv, be rest assured that you won't miss your favorite Premier league matches,Champions league, La Liga and so on, thus bringing the end of multi-choice monopoly in Nigeria.
- TSTv comes with free 20GB of data for surfing the internet.
- TSTv provides an opportunity for you to browse with your phones, laptops through its Wifi and hotspot enabled program.
- TSTv also comes with 50GB storage space for you to record your favorite program to watch later.
TStv Subscription Price
TSTv subscription is very much affordable as you can get a package for as low as N2,000.
Below are the list for the subscription fees and packages.
- TSTv daily plan - N200 plus 500MB
- TSTv 3 days plan - N500 plus 1GB
- TSTv Weekly plan - N750 plus 2GB
- TSTv 10 days plan - N1,000 plus 3GB
- TSTv 2 Weeks plan - N1,500 plus 5GB
- TSTv Monthly Plan - N3,000 Plus 10GB
This is the unique pay-as-you-consume feature the pay TV offers as against the monthly subscription offered by other providers, where you pay for what you use and what you don’t use.
All subscriptions give you access to watch all channels for a period of time. The time varies depending on your subscription.
TStv also offers subscribers free 20GB data and subsequently, 10GB monthly data for just ₦3000 to enjoy its 4.5G network. This is good news since you can connect your laptop and phone over Wi-Fi. I just hope the network will be strong enough in all areas.
According to TStv, this monthly data is available for extension on demand. If I understand this correctly, it means the service isn’t compulsory. Only if you wish.
Where to Buy TStv Decoder/Set Top Box in Nigeria
The STBs are not yet available for sale in most parts of the country. Click here to confirm the availability in your state and the location of accredited dealers.
TStv aims to cover all 36 states of the federation but, for now, will launch in Lagos, Kano, Abuja, Portharcourt, and Owerri. The service will extend to other states later on. The company is probably planning to test-run their service on a small scale before expanding to a large scale.
This way, I believe they’ll make it even better before it becomes available in other locations.
The company is seeking dealers to help distribute the product nationwide. Register here if you’re interested in becoming a super-dealer, sub-dealer, or retailer.
TStv Channels List
The new DTH TV plans to air 200 channels but will begin with 100 channels for now. This figure will later be increased to 150 and subsequently 200.
These channels include 12 sports channels for all live football leagues be it UEFA Champions League, Europa League, English Premier League, Spanish Laliga, or Italian Serie A. Some of the sports channels include BeIN Sports 1-10, Fox Sports HD, and Ts Sports.
The channels are a combination of local, regional, and international channels; they incorporate news, entertainment, kids, health, sports, and education content.
Worry not if you prefer native programs since they’ll come in different languages including Yoruba, Hausa, Igbo, Ghanaian, Liberian, and Sierra Leonean languages.
You may be wondering if TStv would be able to air some live football matches like the ones I mentioned above since DStv has exclusive rights over them. Well, according to their reply to a post on Facebook, they have all the legal rights and infrastructures to air all sports exciting moments live.
