….As Reps endorse pay-per-view innovation
By Dapo Akinrefon
THE House of Representatives has considered the pay-per-view, pay-as-you-go and price reduction for all cable satellite operators in the country.
This followed the adoption of the reports and recommendations of the Ad–hoc Committee on Non–Implementation of Pay–As–You–Go and Sudden Increment of Tariffs plan by Broadcast Digital Satellite Service Providers.
Chairman of the committee, Rep Unyime Idem, had earlier laid the report before the House and was considered by the lawmakers on Wednesday, July 15.
The adopted report by the lower chamber was borne out of the corporate initiative of a Nigerian Media brand, Moreplex TV, which recently introduced pay-per-view as a way of protecting Nigerian consumers from exploitation and enhance the quality of life.
Why every Nigerian must have access to pay TV—Moreplex boss
In his remarks, the Chief Executive Officer of Moreplex TV, John Okorocha said: “Moreplex TV is for us in Nigeria and it must be available for every Nigerian that’s why we are giving discounts and also coming up with a different customer-friendly promo that enables our brand of pay-TV decoder get to every home.
