The Startimes Nigeria TV Network is an almost one-decade-old collaboration between the first Tv station in Nigeria, the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), and the Chinese company that owns StarTimes. The StarTimes service was introduced into the Nigerian entertainment market in 2010.

Startimes also claims of being the first digital TV introduce to the African Market a DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcast on Terrestrial) technology that is easy to use as it does not require any satellite dish installation to deploy its services.

As of 2010, paid cable TV platforms were faced with rapidly rising cost and competition in the midst of deteriorating economic trends. The players in this industry had to take on the task of constantly re-strategising to ensure continued profitability and survival.

However, even in the midst of tough competition, StarTimes still claims to be the king of the cable TV market in its DTT category, insisting that it has become the fastest-growing digital pay-TV platform in the African continent.

Through its new and innovative Direct-to-home (DTH) package known as Dish TV, StarTimes suggests that it is gaining massive ground among subscribers and also finding its way into almost every heart and the homes of thousands of Nigerians with the innovative and rich contents they provide. Not to forget that they are also affordable.

StarTimes has also begun to gain nationwide coverage as areas including Delta, Lagos, Kaduna, Abuja, Aba, Kano, Benin, Enugu, Ilorin, Jos, Benue, Anambra, Port Harcourt, Sokoto, Uyo, Adamawa, and Oyo can now access StarTime services.

This cable company intends to spread even wider as it has dealers in all the cities where it operates hopes to cover more cities in a short period of time.

I did a Nova recharge of 900 and after a week, I was told that my subscription has expired. Why do Companies in Nigeria take pride in cheating customers? This is not just right.

Hello Jackson,
When you subscribe any package that is lesser than your previous package, it will not last up to a month. Whenever you want to subscribe a lesser or higher package you’ll need to upgrade your decoder.

Thanks.

I paid ?6,000 over 10 days ago but my subscription is yet to be activated. I complained via your Facebook page and I supplier my smart card number with evidence of my payment and the onscreen message being displayed to no avail. I complained via your Twitter handle supplying same information also to no avail. I paid my subscription because I am an Arsenal supporter and will love to watch Arsenal on Europa League. So far I missed two of Arsenal’s Europa League matches and the damages i suffered is unquantifiable. As a legal practitioner, i am contemplating taking legal action to press home my displeasure with your services. I am using external antenna and my signal strength is above 50% always. I wonder it with this shabby treatment or customers you back home anywhere close to competing with the DSTV which I have been using satisfactorily for over 15 years. I bought my startime more than five years ago out of patriotism. But my disappointment knows no bounds honestly!
