98 Shares

Startimes Nigeria is a subsidiary of Startimes Media, a Chinese based company.

It is a popular pay TV in Nigeria which deploys the Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) Broadcast Technology. This is technology is also called the Digital Video Broadcast on Terrestrial.

Startimes caught the fancy of many with its unique pay TV technology because it didn’t require an installation dish to work.

The NTA Star TV Network LTD was responsible for introducing StarTimes into the Nigerian television scene and this pay TV platform scored a first by being the first digital TV to be introduced to the country.

Initially, StarTimes was only available in four states in the country namely Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano however it is now available in every state in Nigeria. This was made possible when the company upgraded it TV technology from the DVB-T1 to DVB-T2

In this article, we have put together the information you need to know about Startimes particularly information on the available bouquets, the channels as well as the cost per month of subscribing to the different bouquets.

Also, if you’re a first time Startimes subscriber, you should keep reading because you’ll certainly find all you need to know on this page.

Now that you know you’re in the right place, the next thing you are probably asking is how much it costs to purchase the Startimes decoder.

First, it is important you know that there are several decoder options with different prices.

But you will find out about all of them in a bit.

The decoders include:

  • the SD decoder,
  • the HD decoder and
  • the 2-in-1 combo decoder

The SD decoder cost N6600 while the HD decoder cost N7600 and the 2-in-1 decoder cost N13000.

However, Startimes recently reviewed the price of the 2-in-1 decoder and it currently cost N5900 as against the previous N13000.

You may be wondering what differentiates the 2-in-1 decoder from the other decoder types.

Basically, this decoder combines the features of the satellite dish decoder and the direct to home decoder. As a result, you’re using a decoder that provides multiple access and allow you to enjoy the benefits of the digital terrestrial and digital satellite television channels all in the same decoder.

These two technologies have their advantages combined into one device and these include:

  • Low weather interference
  • Portability
  • More local channels
  • Sharper images
  • Strength in remote areas and
  • High number of international channels

Overall, buying any of these decoders comes with other accessories which include a package of a 10 m outdoor antenna and a free 1 month Nova startimes package.

You can also buy the outdoor antenna alone for just N1500.

Also, there’s an option of the Startimes TV which comes the channels pre-installed on the TV. All you need do is to subscribe to keep watching your favourite Startimes channels
