Television in Nigeria will never be the same with the launch of yet another competitive TV, Kwesé TV, on Thursday, 19 October. Kwesé TV’s package includes entertainment and sports television, some other premium international and African series, children’s entertainment channels as well as packages for the whole family.

According to Elizabeth Amkpa, the General Manager, Kwesé TV, Nigeria, Kwesé is launched in the Nigeria market which is obviously hungry for an alternative Pay-TV network, and Kwesé TV prides itself on offering just that with its general entertainment and sports programmes.

Kwese Tv offers an interesting payment model. You can purchase a ‘pay-as-you-watch’ package which entails a three-day, seven-day, and the thirty-day subscriptions at N990, N1,850 and N6,275 respectively.

The platform owners have also predicted the success of the Tv on the concept of TV anywhere and everywhere. That is it will be available on different platforms namely linear TV, mobile and digital platforms, so the subscribers get unlimited viewing options.

Nigeria Communication Week reports the various channels found in Kwesé TV bouquet including 65 premium channels and the Kwesé Free Sports which is part of the free to air channels Kwesé TV offers. The report indicated that the Kwesé Free Sports channel holds an exclusive free to air rights to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the English Premier League.

This another major shift in the PayTV industry in Nigeria. The advent of TSTV and the new payment option of Star Times TV have been predicted to weaken the monopoly hold of DSTv. How true this is will only be decided by time. we are watching.

Kwesé TV just started the race as it offers a free month subscription for customers after installation. Meanwhile, TSTv is aiming for a November 1 launch. The innovative options of an attractive payment option,  Kwesé TV offering the viewing of the World Cup Russia and the Premier League on a free channel might just be the deal breaker. This is good news for Nigeria.

Indeed, interesting times are ahead!
