DSTV Nigeria is the popular choice for Premier League, Spanish league, WWE championship, various sports, news, and entertainment channels.

    • Hi Francis,

      This is no big issue. Simply put a call to the nearest service unit to get this fixed. Could be an issue with the “IR receiver” unit of the decoder. Would hardly cost more than 1k to fix.

      You can move to Nigeria with it and then contact the customer care (Here in Nigeria) if you ever run into any issues after setting it up.
