Lagos - MultiChoice  Nigeria’s leading provider of premium pay television firm, assured locals all World Cup matches and reviews would be available to all paid subscribers irrespective of their subscriptions.

The company said that unlike in the past when football World Cup matches were aired only on selected bouquet, the 2014 edition holding in Brazil in June, would be available for all subscribers.

Speaking at its customers interactive forum in the Ikorodu area of Lagos, Public Relations Manager, DStv, Caroline Oghuma said the gesture was conceived to give more subscribers the opportunity to catch the excitement of the tournament that begins next month with Nigeria one of 32 participants.

“This forum is coming close to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, which starts on June 12. We want to use this opportunity to tell our subscribers that you will not miss any of the games, as all subscribers, from the DStv Access bouquet to Premium will have unrestrained access to all the World Cup matches live. This is in addition to the other premium content that we offer on DStv,” she said.

He said it is the duty of NBC to regulate the broadcast industry in Nigeria and monitor all the channels on direct-to-home (DTH) and terrestrial televisions.
