Top Indigenous TV Stations in Lagos

So you are bored and you decide to put on the TV and you cannot afford to pay the exorbitant DSTV monthly subscription. Our local television stations still have a long way to go but here is a list of the best TV stations to keep you entertained.


  • Channels Television

Channels TV is a News oriented TV station. Established in 1996 by John Momoh, Channels Television is the CNN of Nigeria when it comes to providing unbeatable and reliable information. Easily the best television station in Nigeria and it has won the award of best TV station in Nigeria at several times in the last 10 years. It has also been awarded the best TV station of the decade for its outstanding performance and commitment to its viewers. In terms of professionalism and efficiency this station is second to none in Nigeria with its highly professional and seasoned staff.

  • Silverbird Television

This is the most watched TV station in Lagos Nigeria but not actually the best according to me. It is owned by the colossus of entertainment business in Nigeria the Silverbird group who also own the Rhythm chain of Radio stations, Silverbird cinemas, domino superstores, occasions and events among other big time businesses. Silverbird Television is an entertainment centered television station although sometimes it compromises quality by airing crappy content.

  • TVC

TVC was Started in 2006, it is a lifestyle TV station but also offers content covering current affairs, sports, music and even business. It is a fast growing TV station with an ever increasing Viewership.

  • AIT

African Independent Television (AIT) is the most watched television Station in Nigeria but not in Lagos. The reason for this is its network of stations that covers much of Nigeria in places where other TV stations cannot reach. AIT used to be Nigeria’s favorite station but has since falling from grace.
