MultiChoice, DStv/Gotv React to Operations Shut Down in June 2019

We recently posted that DStv and GOtv would shut down operation by June next year due to the expiration of their license which would not be renewed. It was stated that their license will not be renewed because it is not inline with Digital Switch Over(DSO) white paper.

In a restrictive explanation, MultiChoice says it agrees to the administrative requirements and pertinent laws on TV broadcasting.


“GOtv is provided under a fully licenced and enrolled 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.

The statement further adds that “MultiChoice remains committed to providing its customers with a wide variety of quality entertainment through the usual best standard”.
