The management of MultiChoice Nigeria, owners of DStv and GOtv, has confirmed that it has renewed its licence with the National Broadcasting Commission.

However, the company did not confirm if its licence had been cancelled by the regulatory body.

In a response to media enquiries, the Public Relations Manager of the company, Caroline Oghuma,  said, “We are aware of some media reports alleging that GOtv’s licence was cancelled. We reassure our customers that GOtv’s licence has been renewed, and we remain committed to offering the best indigenous and international entertainment to our esteemed customers.”

Speculations arose on Wednesday that the renewal of the GOtv licence was contrary to the white paper on Digital Switch Over and that the licence of the company had been revoked by the regulatory body.

Media reports stated that in a letter of March 29, 2019, the Minister of Information,  Lai Mohammed was quoted as saying, “The decision to renew the GOTV licence for three years negate the position of the white paper on the DSO (Digital Switch Over), making it not only illegal but a wilful disrespect for our laws and national institutions.”

A Federal Government DSO white paper  on the transition from analogue to digital broadcasting had stated that after June 2019, the Pay Direct To operators would no longer be licensed to operate as both content providers and signal distributors.
