Senate to Organise a Public Hearing to Address Arbitrary Subscription Charges by Multichoice Nigeria (DSTV)

After receiving complaints by Nigerians, the Senate today discussed a motion on the Unwholesome Practices by Multichoice Nigeria (DSTV) - a subsidiary of South African-based Multichoice Africa.

Distinguished Senators noted that Multichoice's arbitrary subscription charges, price hikes and refusals to adopt a pay-as-you-use model, affect Nigerian subscribers negatively.

For this reason, the Senate, through its Committee on Information, will be organising a public hearing with stakeholders like the Nigerian Broadcast Commission (NBC) and the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) to work out ways to ensure that Nigerian customers are protected from exploitation, and to guarantee that our regulatory agencies begin to take their responsibilities as 'Watchdogs' more seriously.
