thank you! if HITV execs were smart, they wouldn't have banked on EPL as the sole appeal on their bouquet. right now they're hanging on a thread, hope they don't totally crash and fall apart. one thing's for sure, that 6,000 tarriff will be slashed down drastically.

What happens now to HiTV?

Thats the question! But we need to confirm this news. If its true, I would suggest HiTV steps up their game and challenges DsTV in this cable broadcasting market.

HiTV needs to improve their content to challenge their competitors. Movies, Better Cartoons, Series and more thought provoking channels that would keep viewers entertained.

DsTV - Well done! You've seen a market and you're taking hold of it to your advantage. More grease to your palms.

Viva Nigeria.

HiTV now has to develop its content beyond football.

Yes, they have used EPL to launch themselves, but I am dismayed that they have not done so much to develop more content. Once the EPL season ended, HiTV programming was lost in the oceans.

Now they have a fight on their hands and I do hope (as a Nigerian) that they rise up to the occasion.
