TSTV has denied reports that it has infringed on the copyright of Bein Sports and Turner Broadcasting which owns CNN. Head of Corporate Communication for TSTV, Madu Ugo released this statement on the matter. “Our attention has been drawn to memos circulating on social media claiming TSTV illegally used the logo of Bein Sport and Tuner on its website. We wish to state that this is malicious and false. The memos circulating on social media are FAKE. Both letters were packaged in a single brown envelop and was hurriedly dropped at our office by an unidentified person.
“TSTV has a non-disclosure agreement with Beni Sports and Turner to air their stations on TSTV satellite Television. The Nigeria Broadcasting Commission team were also in Qatar to confirm our agreement with Bein Sports and also have a copy of our agreement with Bein Sport. Nigerians should kindly disregard the documents because they are frivolous. TSTV is prepared to offer affordable and excellent digital services to Nigerians and Africans completely hitch free.” Nigerians have criticized TSTV for launching on October 1 without sorting out its distribution channel thereby making it difficult to get its decoders. Our research indicates that dealers may start selling decoders from today after completing training on installation.
