Nigeria-China $550 million satellite deal

Two Chinese firms that are into satellite manufacturing, China EXIM Bank and China Great Walls, have agreed with the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to procure two satellites.
According to the Minister of Communication, Mr. Adebayo Shittu, who disclosed this to State House correspondents, after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The minister said: “I am in the Presidency to see Mr. President and to brief him on some major issues On NigComSat, which is one of our agencies where we hope to procure two new satellites from China.

“Initially, the agreement was that they will provide the cost of the two satellites at $550 million minus 15 per cent, which is the counterpart funding.

“Because we could not afford the 15 per cent, we have renegotiated with China EXIM Bank and China Great Walls, which are the manufacturers and they have agreed to pay the entire $550 million to procure two new satellites. The two new ones will ensure that the Nigerian satellite company which is NigCOMSAT can conquer the entire African continent with regard to the provision of satellite communication services.

“This is a very big business opportunity and I am sure that the Chinese appreciate the potential market which is so vast and that is why they have agreed that even without our ability to contribute 15 percent, they are prepared to pay the entire sum of $550 million for the procurement of the two new satellites for Nigeria.”

The Minister also said it will take two years to procure the satellite and launch.

“It will take two years to produce because it is when we sign the papers that they will start production. We hope that before the end of this month, we will sign the papers and then they will commence the production. It is at the completion of the production that the two satellites will be launched" said Mr Shitu.

He explained that the money was an equity participation of Chinese company in the nation’s business.
NigComSat is a limited liability company owned entirely by the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Recall that Nigeria already have NigComSat1 in space, the advent of the proposed NigComSat2 and NigComSat3 will leave the entire Africa covered from the geostationary orbit.

Highly Digitalized TStv is here to rival DStv

The entry of the cable network (TSTV) into Nigeria’s media space was one of the top trending topics on the internet now. On October 1st, 2017, the 57th anniversary of Nigeria’s independence, a new cable television platform known as Telecom Satellites TV (TStv) will launch its services that very day.



TS is a Direct-To-Home (DTH) broadcast service that came to be as a result of a multi-transponder agreement between ABS and Telcom Satellites TV to deliver DTH to Nigeria on the ABS 3A satellite. The service is set to air more than 100 TV channels at first and grow to above 150 with time.


Bright Echefu, STV Managing Director and CEO said: “Our vision is to provide premium video experience to Nigerians at affordable prices. Our services will enable the viewers to experience HD and SD video and internet surfing at the same time. We are the first indigenous local operator in the region to launch such a premium platform with a variety of services to Nigerians, who have been so far paying exorbitant prices to foreign operators.”



TStv is offering internet and broadcast services all in one package similar to what Zuku offers its subscribers in Kenya to effectively tame DStv in that East African country.

 



The TStv market entry is fostered on the theme of freedom to enjoy better and cheaper payTv services. The new station has a lower entry price and a monthly subscription window with Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) offerings. Subscribers on TStv may save themselves up to 200% in their monthly satellite TV budget as the new service provider unleash a pricing war on the existing monopoly. 



I'm glad to let you know that we have got the full list of TSTV decoder channels available for subscribers to enjoy. With over 200 channels, TStv got you covered all day.



When talking about channels, TSTV offers Sports, Kids, Health, Fashion, News, Entertainment, Ethnic and religious channels in abundance. The official site for TSTV is http://www.tstvafrica.com

Multichoice’s Digital Satellite TV (DStv) has been around for about 22 years. Its monopoly was last challenged by HiTV which has long ceased to be in the market owing to a mix of factors that include huge debts and boardroom tussles. With HiTV out, DStv dominance. But with the announcement of the new TV provider entering the market with the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband (HBB) technology that combines both satellite and internet service for TV services, DStv is re-strategizing to sustain its market share. Already it is being speculated that the company is planning to adopt the PAYG offering, although it is yet to be announced.



Telcom Satelite TV is set to challenge the monopoly of South African Multichoice’s Digital Satellite TV (DStv) in the pay TV market. It is the next big thing in Nigeria and  TStv Africa decoder shall be on sell nationwide from 1st October! But before then, dealers outlet location addresses shall be made available for easy accessibility of the decoders. Details can be gotten at their official site www.tstvafrica.com
