    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?

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

  19. Chrisantos

    Want to know if Dstv LNB can be changed or replaced when needed and for how much can I buy it if I need one.

  21. Marcel

    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

    2. Izuchukwu Moses

      I agree with all your observations the country is in a total mess those in the authority are not helping the matter they are equally worsening things for the poor masses. Dstv knows very well that they are charging quite high on their subscriptions. Why should one pay for a pvr which should have been an added value for using an explorer decoder they know that none will query these things probably because they have bought them (those in authority) over.

  22. Odeyemi Olajide

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

  23. Tony

    Why do I have to pay for access fee for an explora when I don’t use the PVR facilities after paying so much for the decoder?

  24. Oluseye

    Vic, I have a walka 7 which I linked to a premium subscriber as secondary user, I usually pay 990 on it but I was told abt 3months ago that I can’t pay differently and that I need to always pay alongside with the premium acct. Pls help me on this

  25. Temitope Michael

    Nice deal. DSTV is the best. Kindly, I will like to o DSTV business, by marketing and selling to my neighbourhood. Please contact me as I have this great plan of becoming part of this reputable family. Thanks…

  26. Augustine Sowunmi

    i paid for dstv premium early thi morning though it expire today how do i get myself reconnected. thanks

  27. Don Effect

    Can I get championships and other league in compact bouquets?

  28. 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

  29. 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.

  30. 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

  31. Aderonke Zakirah Adegoke

    I noticed that films are been repeated every month on all African Magic Stations and even on M-net Action and other stations like that. Am beginning to lose interest because am not getting the value for what I paid for any longer. Please do something about it. Becz it becoming boring repeating films every time. Thank you.

    1. Izuchukwu Moses

      I have observed that too and secondly, the movies are so old. Why should i waste money watchibg movies of 90s even the movies between 2013 down to 2000 are old to me. Why can’t Dstv air latest movies. After going through the programmes I wonder why the subscriptions are so high. I haven’t seen anything special that is been aired to attract that much. I think the highest bouquets shouldn’t be more than N4000

  32. bukky

    Please vic I am stranded in my apartment and I really need to get in touch one of the abeokuta branches. Immediately. The ewang branch up the nnpc Road please.

  33. Godwin

    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!

  79. Owen

    I will like to know why will DSTV be sending SMS to their customers to renew their subscription and get 1 month free, but when I called their customer care to validate their message, they said one would be in a raffle draw to qualify, meaning you might subscribe and get nothing…
    T&C apply… SMH

  86. Sholay

    Can somebody please encourage BSKYB to bring their cable to Africa, they provide full cable, internet and phone calls for less than 10k…they also allow you to view over 100 channels when your subscription expires. Why is DSTV reaping us of our hard earned cash and only leave you with Chinese station when your subscription expires. They should pack up and go. We want competition to make them run for the money they take from the masses. Crap!

  87. Nelson Nwadike

    Dstv port harcourt studium road Rivers is making thins difficult to us, please why is it that the refuse us not to pay for compact of 6000Naria rather insisted that its 9420Naria we must pay for compact, why my brother who leaves in lagos pay 6k for compact.

  90. Emmanuel

    After paying 9.450 yet i can’t watch premier league and when compact plus was 7850 we could watch premier league. Now DSTV increased the price and took premier league to S5.which is wrong, if DSTV is saying they increased the price bcos of dollar rate ,so why take premier league to S5? .after my subscription expires I won’t use DSTV again .I rather buy startimes for my family and watch premier league at the viewing centres afterall at the end of the month I won’t spend 1000 and I will watch all the matches then waste 9450 yet can’t watch premier league. Nigerians I advice we all do this.and push DSTV away so better people will come in

  101. John

    DSTV should do something about their customers on Compact plus bouquet,it is unreasonable for Dstv to allow alot of people to pay for this bouquet and later disconnect them from watching english premier league on SS3.This is absolutely wickedness.

  102. anas

    u guys are impossible, u are taking the advantage of monopoly of the business to extort nigerians, its not fair taking away English league from ss3. I hate dstv for milking me dry

  105. darlington

    whats the amount to be payed 4 hotel account on 5 decoders n whats d benefit pls..urgent

  106. david

    You guys dstv are ripper, other country pay less money in cable stations, even in india i pay 960 rupee which is 3000 naira per month, for more than 100 stations and 35 HD stations(Movies and sports HD) with 5 4k station, and i use TATA SKY HD DVR (Digital Video Recorder) HD with live record, Play, pause and rewind features, with added service like karaoke with mic. and i got the TATA HD BOX for 7400 rupee, which is almost 22,000 to 23,000 naira. We need to grow up for all this, remember what MTN did to us, until Airtel, Glo and Etisalat came out, we need a good local company satellite cable station, made in nigeria for Nigerians.

  107. ayodele yusuf alam

    don’t you people think the price we are paying for communication line is too much,even at time of show the network will just scramble for some hour and before you know all viewers/our customer would have gone and the match itself would have finished,and that does not affect your company and our money is going,so what do u intend to do on this?

  108. Salaam Adebayo Olusegun

    Pls how much is the connection. 3 view now for business. Thanks

    Your service to us here on our land is dissatisfied, you promised NTA, AIT, Channels, MITV , and Silver bird to be free to air, but as soon as the subscription expires the so called pay as you go, you tagged free to air will disappear, why?

  121. Dowedee

    For the past 1week my dstv has been showing without audio. I have called customer service and sent emails. It takes forever to get response. I visted the dstv office here in Akure with my decoder and I was told that I would have to go to Ibadan to change the decoder because it is faulty. Why can’t the Akure office liase with Ibadan on my behalf to change the decoder? I don’t have the time to go to Ibadan now. One of your agents called me today to ask why I haven’t been using my dstv, after explaining to her the problem, she just hung up without as much as a Solution. Please help!This is poor customer service and I am really dissatisfied.

    What have you added to dstv compact bouquet in less than 1 month for its price to jump from 5000 Naira to 6000 Naira. Channel O has just been removed, so why less for more money?

    1. The Naira value is dropping against the dollar.

      1. So if naira value appreciate will the fees actually be reduce?

        1. I have no idea if it will.
