As we all know, TStv Nigeria started the sales of their decoder on the 1st of November just like they promised and lots of Nigerians who were on the wait for this have purchased it already.

Amidst this progress, many of the subscribers of TSTVAfrica have been in shocked as the BeIN Sports channels, which seemed to be the major reason why many sports lovers opted for the relatively less expensive paid TV service, notified them of illegal viewing of the Europa League match between Arsenal and Red Star Belgrade yesterday.

The Qatari-based sports company had earlier issued a memo to the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) stating that they have no content distributorship agreement with TSTV; thus, making distributing their contents on its platform an illegal activity.[AdSense-B]

However, TSTVAfrica denied any wrongdoing and existence of such memo. This put more credence to the question of why TSTV would establish its business in such stormy beginning.

On the incident, TSTV also took to Twitter to explain that its system was hacked by unscrupulous elements and it is working to resolve the issue.
