    Its unfair the way multi choice Nigeria is treating us . How could I subscribe with my money so as to enjoy myself yet u are there to deprive me of my happiness.
    Since 7:30 pm I have paid a sum of # 1800 and confirmation received. So why am I not able to have access then?

    A day after I subscribed my decoder, we just noticed it was scanning and rescanning again and again, later it went off finally (I. e it was no longer scanning) the decoder was taken to where we subscribed it, we were told it is outdated and we need to pay the sum of #12,000 to get the recent version. This is a decoder we bought for #27,000 not up to 5 years ago. To me I simply see this as a means of EXTORTION and I’ll like to get feedback from you people for the reason why we need to re_buy the updated version when we keep installing your updates as they are sent.
