The purpose of the visit, according to Dr. Echefu, was to inform the Commission of their plan to roll out 1st October, 2020, across the country.

He disclosed that TSTV has surmounted its initial challenges, and are repositioned to deliver to Nigerians, a product that will meet the needs of everybody.

Welcoming the TSTV Team to the Commission, Prof. Idachaba noted that NBC remains firmly committed in promoting local participation in the broadcast industry especially in the Pay-TV sector as an avenue for Job creation and a platform to galvanize the entrepreneurial skills of the Nigerian youths.

He assured the organization of the support of the NBC and the government in all ways legally possible, to ensure a smooth rollout for TSTV.
