In their latest foray into the direct to home broadcast across the country, the Nigerian Communication Satellite Ltd (NIGCOMSAT) some days ago announced a new Satellite TV which it named NextTv.
This is not the first time the satellite company has officially launched a DTH television. During the upsurge of TSTV in 2017, one was launched, however hinderances shortlived the Tv to only the launch buzz.
However, this latest one promises to live beyond the past as the federal government has encouraged all Nigerians to support the new platform. This was clearly stated by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo who was represented by the Minister of Communications, Barr. Adebayo Shittu at the satellite tv's unvieling.
He said the federal government is interested in the partnership between NIGCOMSAT and Next and is ready to offer all the needed support to make the partnership work.
Mr Malik Ado- Ibrahim, the chairman of the new company in his view aired that with low entry cost and services to be offered through mobile telephones, rural penetration was a major niche for the company.
The platform isn't a sole one in it's pursuit but a joint venture partnership between Nigus International, a Nigerian technology solutions company, NIGCOMSAT and China Great Wall Industry Corporation (CGWIC).
