StarTimes Decoders Channels Bouquet Packages

In Nigeria, the NTA Star TV Network provides StarTimes, a Direct-to-Home DTH pay TV service. NTA and its Chinese partners, StarTimes of China, have teamed up to form the Star TV Network. The NTA StarTimes service is unique in that, unlike most other pay TV services in Nigeria, it does not require a satellite dish, nor does it require any installation fees, nor does it require you to be concerned about the weather.

All you need is a StarTimes decoder to start watching around 30 to 70 stations for as little as 6000 Naira per month or as much as 4,800 Naira per month.

In Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Aba, Benin, Enugu, Ilorin, Jos, Kaduna, Kano, Markurdi, Onitsha, Port Harcourt, Sokoto, Uyo, Yola, and Ibadan, NTA Startimes is now available. Soon, Startimes will be available in additional cities.

Just a StarTimes decoder, no dish required

The biggest advantage of StarTimes DTH Pay TV is that it does not require a satellite dish. DVB-T2 is the digital terrestrial broadcasting technology used by StarTimes.

Because there is no need for a dish, the system is inexpensive for subscribers. All you need is a Startimes decoder, which costs roughly N3,990 and comes with a free month of basic bouquet subscription.

Simply attach the StarTimes decoder to your television and you can begin watching over 30 channels in your house if you subscribe to the basic package or up to 70 channels if you subscribe to the top plan.

Any TV antenna can receive StarTimes broadcasts, but an antenna put outside (external antenna) will provide greater reception and allow you to receive the entire lineup. For 2,500 Naira, you can get an outdoor antenna for your StarTimes system with a connecting wire.

When compared to satellite pay TV, StarTimes transmissions are more weather resistant. StarTimes reception will be unaffected whether it is rainy, cloudy, or sunny.

Although the quality of the StarTimes Nova and basic bouquets may be regarded poor, considering the prices of around N600 and 1200 Naira each month, one could argue that you are receiving decent value for your money. Aside from that, you can upgrade your plan to get better programming for a greater price.

Consumers at the lower end of the pay TV market will be interested in StarTimes. These customers are more likely to be price conscious and will be interested in the service.

StarTimes is a wonderful price, but the ability to watch live English Premier League matches on NTA Sports 24 (one match per week) makes the Pay TV package even better, especially for EPL aficionados in the entry level category.
