Nigerians have been making a glimpse of what the rave-making TSTV decoder looks like as many people can’t wait to buy it already.

The Pay-TV is set to offer great entertainments, sports, hot movies and many others for its  customers. However, the photos of the TSTV decoder that will go on sale very soon have been revealed online.

According to TSTV post explaining the features of TSTV SMART HD Set up box:

“TELCOM Satellites will pioneer the introduction of Smart set top boxes in Nigeria DTH industry. Our HD SMART Set Top Box (Connected Set top box) converts your existing LED TV into a Smart TV besides showing you more than 100 Channels & services in High Definition and Standard Definition. While the DTH tech in it brings television channels in Standard Definition and High Definition, the Connected set top box allows one to browse content from Twitter, Facebook, Daily Motion, video on demand sites, Over the Top, OTT apps, news, weather etc. through applications residing on STB. Our HD Smart Set Top Box will work as a tool for personalization, engagement, and new customer experiences and with internet connectivity, one can convert one‘s TV into a smart TV using it.

“TSTV STB Back-Office End-to-End Solution is an easy-to-maintain solution for delivering TV, Video-On-Demand, and interactive services to end users who use LAN. It suits for schools, hospitals, hotels, communities, securities firms and so on.

“TSTV STB platform also includes in-built fast Wi-Fi, up to 802.11ac, 1 GBit/s Ethernet and USB 3.0 interface.

Multichannel video recording is possible via fast external USB 3.0 hard disks up to 50 Gigabyte capacity.

“Instead of buying separate smart TVs or dongles which are expensive, users can now buy our integrated set top boxes which allows them to directly connect to internet, stream media, and access subscribed content?

“With our launch on 1st October, 2017, TELCOMSAT has scaled new technological heights and demonstrated its ability by providing a high end advanced product that delivers next generation solutions as part of the idea of Internet of Things (IoT).

“The feature of unlimited external recording is also available, by plugging in your own external storage device for recording your favourite programs, for e.g.: if one plugs in his own external hard drive of 1TB, they can record up to 1900 hrs of content of a standard definition channel.”

The features are great enough to wipe out the era of DSTV and GOTV but the TSTV decoder looks like freezer though.


  1. SkrinAd Allows You Make Money By Using Your Android Phone
    Nigerians to now get paid for using smartphone. Users of smartphone across Nigeria can now make extra income with their internet enabled phones by just viewing ads.
    SkrinAd, a Nigeria-developed mobile application is providing a platform for phone users to rent their mobile phones screen as advertising space for companies and organizations and get paid.
    The Co-founder of the innovation, Jimmy Babatunde disclosed that the idea behind the application is to create another stream of income for phone users to cater for their everyday bills such as airtime, Cable TV subscription, electricity bill amongst others as well as make transfer to their bank account(s).
    “As Nigerians, we were concerned about the dedication of data and internet users to monthly subscription of data plans without any direct benefit.
    Every day, internet users come across various digital adverts which they watch but do not benefit from in any way. So, we looked at how to create a win-win platform for both the phone users and the advertisers in such a way that advertisers will have to pay the phone users for viewing adverts that naturally interest them.”

  4. Looking at the features, it is cool, maybe as time and advancement goes on they will reduce it to be like gotv decoder. Everything e.g phones started up this way.
    But oga prex the other theme was the best.

  5. Nigerians are so gullible! When the deal is too good to be true then it's best to stay back. For example, tstv are claiming to have rights to rebroadcast beIN sports channels. The problem is that Nigeria, thanks to its population & economy, is treated as a separate zone to the rest of Africa – when it comes to selling sports TV rights. In Africa, there are 4 zones for selling EPL rights; Nigeria which DSTV has exclusive rights, South Africa which DSTV also have exclusive rights, Northern Africa which together with the Middle East – are combined together & sold as one region – beIN has exclusive rights to this region, & there is the rest of Africa where DSTV has exclusive rights too. The money generated from these broadcasting rights are, partly, paid to clubs as a source of revenue. Since beIN has rights to air # EPLin MENA region, they will have a hard time reselling those rights to TSTV. If this happens, it will end up badly for all parties involved! For one, by forcing dstv out of the Nigerian market with their very low subscription fees, TSTV will make it impossible for any other pay TV operator to bid for broadcasting rights in Nigeria. This means that the EPL will lose Nigeria as a source of revenue & it will only encourage sports broadcasting-rights laundering! Why? Remember beIN pays only for MENA; the extra cash it gets from reselling to TSTV will only go into their pockets. In the next round of issuing sports broadcasting rights, which covers 2019-2020 to 2021-2022 season, Nigeria won't have any respresentativebecause beIN killed them with their deal with TSTV. EPL will stand to lose money & that's why they won't allow that too. This means that they will have to force beIN to stop reselling its TV rights to TSTV or, at the very least, bid for broadcasting rights for Nigeria. Either way, it will be game over for TSTV. TSTV, beIN & DSTV know this that's why you don't see the latter panicking! Also, the subscription rate for TSTV is too low to recoup the money they pay to rebroadcast such high end content. Other operators like Star times have very limited high end content like a low number of HD channels & less top flight football coverage. However, such pay TV operators(star times etc) charge you more than what TSTV are planning to charge you! Are TSTV an aid group? NGO? Wake the f**k up & smell this huge con looming. Better yet, wait for like 6 months & see how it turns out. That's if they don't stop postponing by then!
