    Hi..I bought the explora from one of your outlets in alaba 4 months ago for 30, 000 but I was only given the decoder and remote control . I just read here that its supposed to come with the dish which I wasnt given. Im about to go back to the dstv office where I got my explora from and demand for the dish that wasnt included because I was told by a technician this morning that my old dish is bad and i need to buy a new one.
    My question is..were all dstv outlets aware that the dish, explora and control are to be sold for 30, 000?

  10. Hello, pls can I subscribe for dstv access(N1800) on Explorer?

    Honestly, dstv is really swindling nigerians with their exorbitant prices. Of a truth, the premium bouquet of 13980 naira is not suppose to be more 4000 naira at most.the government of this country can’t do anything about it because they have been bribed to fence off any competiting company to establish in Nigeria.I could remember when we had only Mtn network in Nigeria that mtn openly stole from the masses by selling their line for 50,000 naira and above but when competition came from other companies, lines were sold for 100 naira and now lines are even free.let’s call evil evil.let dstv slash their highest bouquet ie premium bouquet to 3500 to 4000 or let them leave this country and they should stop bribing the government not to allow other companies who will offer us a cheaper price to come in.I bet all Nigerians that if other competitive companies should come into Nigeria, digital subscriptions for all bouquets won’t be more than 2000,just like what mtn did to us when they came into Nigeria initially by selling their line to us for 50,000 and above which later came down to 100.I rest my case

    1. God will bless you guy I also share you view that bribe that will take them out like Halliboten

  14. Odeyemi Olajide

    Please, can you tell the monthly subscription for dual view?

  15. Tony

  16. Oluseye

  20. Tobi

    is cartoon network part of the channels of the smallest subscription package for dstv? because it was in it in the article and also in the additional channels in the family package. really confusing.

    1. Tobi,
      Yes it is

  21. Steve O

    Good Day Sir, I would appreciate it if your DSTV Company would consider a PAY AS YOU GO SYSTEM OF TARIFF instead of this your monthly subscription because we pay so much for just watching TV yet there is no light, or you may optionally extend your period of validity of each Subscription say; each subscription should last for like 3 months or so. KINDLY CONSIDER OUR NIGERIA’S ECONOMIC FACTOR.

  22. alice

    dear vic, at one point you say the explora is N60,000 and at another you say it is N30,000, please which is it because i want to purchase one and i don’t want to be duped.

    thank you.

    1. Alice,
      The new price for the DSTV Explora is N30,000

  23. Aderonke Zakirah Adegoke

    I noticed from trend of previous messages that vic is selective of the question he answers probably because of the negative publicity which he can’t deny. It’s alright tho, but ive learnt something about this naija.. and that is the fact that when a foreign company is ripping of Nigerian consumers, fellow Nigerians are always involved either by supporting their cause or giving them information to thrive in such an unjust cause. On the other hand, Nigerians find it really hard to unanimously boycott things like this irrespective of the fact that they would still complain in their closets. When they complain, they still don’t have the mind to see it through by using other service providers. It’s really unfortunate. If actually the consumer protection parastatal was concerned about courses like this, they should have fought tooth and nail to prevent this monopoly but make it competitive by bringing other service providers that can offer better srevives at a more competitive price… that’s the only solution.
    I rest my case!

    1. ebere

      YOU are so right

  32. Wale

    Pls, wot is the minimum bouquet I can subscribe on DSTV explora. Thanks
