The comapny how stated that it remains committed to bringing the best service in the country stated that it is not clear as to how or why its license will not be renewed. They further reviewed that they will investigate to see how to best resolve the matter.



In a statement the company says;
GOtv is provided under a fully licenced and registered entity in Nigeria, and this license comes up for renewal in March 2019" the statement reads.
As a law-abiding and committed Nigerian operator which has fulfilled (and continues to comply with) all regulatory requirements and applicable laws, it is not clear how or why this license would not be renewed, and as such the company will investigate further in the best interests of the many customers it serves in the market" it further says.
MultiChoice remains committed to providing its customers with a wide variety of quality entertainment through the usual best standards.
