TStv to expand across Africa
DTH pay TV operator TStv Africa is preparing to launch and operate its pan-African TV channels and data centres in Nigeria and other African countries.
Telecom Satellite, the media and technology company that owns TStv Africa, has been expanding from Abuja to other parts of Nigeria. It has developed five network operations centres, has satellites covering 232 cities in 35 African countries, and has invested in 98 HD premium channels.
TStv Africa founder and CEO Bright Echefu said: “[In] the first half of 2020, we have undergone tremendous changes, commissioning a state-of-the-art data centre in Nigeria, building a satellite teleport that hosts hundreds of high-definition television channels and launching the TStv product offering across Africa.
“We have also expanded the TStv-owned and managed television and radio channels to 52 while hosting over 180 multiview televison channels on the TStv pay TV platform, broadcasting across Africa with premium content.
“My dream is that an entire generation will grow with the daily sight of telecom satellites products. Our investments are in 10 key interests which include video and radio entertainment, content aggregation, dubbing services, linear and non-linear content distribution, pay TV operation and eCommerce.”
