Recently-launched pay-per-view TV provider, TSTV, has responded to claims that it has been handed cease and desists memos to not show some of it’s stations.
Letters surfaced on social media allegedly from BeIN and Turner companies, warning TSTV not to show any of their stations in Nigeria.
The Head of Corporate Communications for TSTV, Mr Madu Ugo on Wednesday 4th October, 2017, said, “Our attention has been drawn to memos circulating on social media claiming TSTV illegally used the logo of Bein Sport and Tuner on its website. We wish to state that this is malicious and false.
“The memos circulating on social media are FAKE. Both letters were packaged in a single brown envelop and was hurriedly dropped at our office by an unidentified person.
“TSTV has a non-disclosure agreement with Beni Sports and Turner to air their stations on TSTV satellite Television.
“The Nigeria Broadcasting Commission team were also in Qatar to confirm our agreement with Bein Sports and also have a copy of our agreement with Bein Sport.
He added: “Nigerians should kindly disregard the documents because they are frivolous. TSTV is prepared to offer affordable and excellent digital services to Nigerians and Africans completely hitch free.”
