But why all the delays all this while? Why is TStv not serious about business?

I’m sure these and many more questions are running through the minds of most Nigerians who expected this TV company to compete fiercely with DSTV but the company has both directly and indirectly stated that there is a big battle going on in background to faze them out of business.

According to TStv,

“If only Nigerians know the kinds of fights TSTV has gone through and survived. What is important is that we are still standing and we have learnt strong lessons and we are stronger by the day. We will never fail even if we delayed.”

We will make that difference.
