Multichoice, DSTV/GOTV To Shut Down In June 2019



According to report, the Federal Government of Nigeria have notified the management of MultiChoice DSTV/GOTV that their operations, in Nigeria, will be coming to an end in June 2019 as their license is set to expire next year.

Recall that GOTV has been accused of being used as a conduit to siphon foreign exchange from Nigeria by its parent company, South African Multichoice DSTV.

It was learnt that in  a letter to the effect issued, on Tuesday, by the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), the license issued to the company in 2014 by NBC will not be renewed because it was not in line with Digital Switch Over (DSO) White Paper.

Thus if Multichoice DSTV/GOTV will ever operate in Nigeria again after their license expires in 2019, the only option they will have is to go to the licensed Signal Distribution company, that is Pinnacle Communications Ltd or ITS.
