Dstv nigeria

Quick Intro..







Looking at setting up a dstv satellite TV in your Nigerian home or office?
You need to buy a device plus a package.
Your device is the hardware.
Your package is the subscription.
Payment for the device is done once.
And the subscription? – You pay every month.

If you looking at upgrading to DSTV Nigeria for the first time… You may wanna go for something inexpensive.

Cheapest DSTV Nigeria Set Up


The 
cheapest most inexpensive option is:

HD Decoder + The Access Package.

The HD Decoder cost 13,500
The Access Package is 1800.
Those amounts are in Naira by the way – Nigerian Naira.
This implies that the least cost for setting up dstv cable in Nigeria is N15,300. They call it the Total Initiation cost. Gotv Nigeria is cheaper, though.
As you’d expect; there’s a lot of channel restriction in this package…
In this post – I will try as much as I can to show all the available DSTV Nigeria package Device combination and prices plus all the available channels.

DSTV Explora Vs DSTV HD Decoder


Here is a quick side by side comparison of the two DSTV Devices.
The Explora cost N30,000 (for good reasons)
The HD Decoder goes for just N13,500.
NB: Please know that any of this devices works perfectly all the available DSTV Nigeria packages(See comprehensive list of all DSTV Nigeria bouquets below)
