Pay-TV service provider, MultiChoice Nigeria, has debunked reports that it plans to make its services available via the Pay-per-View model.
The company in a statement issued in Lagos, said “at no time was it announced that a Pay-per-View service was about to be launched.”
MultiChoice explained that before the Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor boxing fight, it explained to journalists that Premium subscribers on its DSTV platform will watch the fight as part of their package, while subscribers to pay television services in the USA would need to pay an additional $99 on pay per view basis to access the fight.
During the briefing, MultiChoice clarified that Pay-per-View service is a pay television service whereby subscribers of a particular television provider can purchase additional sporting events to view over and above their normal subscription package and charges.
Furthermore, the company explained that this service does not currently exist in Nigeria or anywhere else in Africa at the moment, but is being used in the United States and the United Kingdom.
