SLTV channels

The Managing Director of Metrodigital Ltd., owners of Silver Lake Television (SLTV), Dr Ifeanyi Nwafor,  has announced plans to introduce new channels and some digital innovation to the SLTV.

Nwafor told newsmen in Lagos on Tuesday that the innovation would bring in new and exciting experiences to consumers, especially in this trying period.

SLTV, a new indigenous  pay TV with over 50 channels was launched in a bid to break the monopoly of the dominant operator in Nigeria’s pay television market, Multichoice Nigeria Ltd.

The SLTV founder said that one of the innovations it planned on introducing was the Electronic Video Recording (EVR) that would be available to all in spite of the subscription paid.

Nwafor said that the electronic video recording was not new, adding that it was also available on DSTV but for only those on higher paying subscriptions. He said that the EVR would be available to all SLTV subscribers, regardless of amount paid to subscribe.

“Our message to Nigerians is that there is an alternative, one can now get all those services at very good quality at very reasonable prices.

“We understand  the challenges  faced by Nigerians and the need to have access to quality views and SLTV is here to serve Nigerians.

“The roll-out of the innovation will be September to allow for adequate  planning and delivery of customer satisfaction.

“There is no immediate plan to increase the subscription or the price of decoder because we are aware of the economic hardships experienced by Nigerians,’’ the SLTV boss assured.

He said that the initial scarcity of the SLTV decoder had been resolved as measures had been put in place to ensure adequate supply at all times.

Nwafor also assured of the payTV’s sustainability leveraging  on its experiences of so many years.

Meanwhile, a sales agent of SLTV, Mr Damilola Ismail, said that the patronage for the Pay-TV had been very encouraging. Ismail said that each day, more people came in to purchase the SLTV decoder  and subscribed.

According to him, there has been a drop in the sale of the DSTV and  subscription for it has reduced drastically.

“There is no difference in channels between DSTV and SLTV, just the pricing and that has caused surge in the demand for SLTV,” he said.
