MultiChoice, DSTV/GOTV May Be Force To Shut Down Operation By June 2019

Recent indication suggest that the Federal Government of Nigeria may be shutting down the operation of MultiChoice DSTV/GOTV comes 2019. This is as a result of the licence issued to them which will be expiring at the end of 2019. The Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) in a letter issued on Tuesday notified MultiChoice, DSTV/GOTV 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.


Multichoice DSTV/GOTV will need to obtain a new license as a Signal Distribution company for them ever operate again in Nigeria. GOTV has been accused of being used as a conduit to siphon foreign exchange from Nigeria by its parent company, South African Multi Choice DSTV.

At this time, we have not heard anything from Multichoice, DSTV or GOTV but we hope to update you with the latest development as soon as we get it.
