Barely two days after the official launch and live transmission of TSTV, the latest Pay Tv provider to storm the Nigerian market which no doubt which already raised and won the heart of many Nigerians with its mouth watering offers, the same Pay TV operator is beginning to make Nigerians doubt their legitimacy which is obviously a terrible way to start business.

To many Nigerians, the Pay Tv provider was seen as the viable alternative to market monopoly power of DSTV and GOTV until subscribers were shocked to see an illegal viewing notification on one of the sport channels “BeIN Sport”
The message “CA Error | YOU ARE VIEWING BEIN SPORTS CONTENTS ILLEGALLY VIA TSTV NIGERIA” appeared during the broadcast of an Europa league match between Arsenal and Red Star Belgrade on Thursday, November 2, 2017.
A Nigerian viewer narrated his experience and how the match was truncated half-way into the game.
“This happened right before my eyes. And it is compared only to American wonder in Nigeria. 29 seconds to the commencement of arsenal match, this message appeared on the screen, “CA Error | YOU ARE VIEWING BEIN SPORTS CONTENTS ILLEGALLY VIA TSTV NIGERIA”
“And immediately after this, the screen went blank and there was another message that stayed for a while before TSTV wiped it out.”
Remember BEIN, a Qatari-based sports company had earlier issued a memo to the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) stating that they have no content distributorship agreement with TSTV; thus, making distributing their contents on its platform an illegal activity but TSTV Africa was quick to deny any wrongdoing and existence of such memo by making Nigerians believe the memo was circulated by rumour mongers.
On the incident, TSTV also took to Twitter to explain that its system was hacked by unscrupulous elements and it is working to resolve the issue.
Nigerians are definitely watching and only time would tell if TSTV lives to meet their expectations.
