Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Launches N250 Million Pay TV/Cable Platform!

Now there is an extra TV cable platform in addition to other TV cable platforms like DSTV and Star Times. Former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has further extended his grip in the media and broadcasting business as he finally rolls out services of his new pay TV company, CONSAT.

According to information available to Encomium Weekly, the new pay TV platform, Continental Satellite Limited, will operate in the form of cable satellite pay television with bouquet and dish and the network will operate from the premises of Continental Broadcasting in Ikosi, Ketu, Lagos. Findings revealed CONSAT package cost N15,000 and will provide 15 channels which include CNN, BBC, Aljazeera and movie channels. Another 95 channels are also available for subscribers who prefer the cable service.

The plan to float a pay TV platform by Bola Tinubu has been in the pipeline for some time now. The equipment used in the setting up of the company was shipped in to Nigeria last year from Europe. According to inside source, about N250 million went into setting up the new television venture.

CONSAT will no doubt give other pay TV platforms like DSTV, Startimes, a run for their money in terms of services and reach. Tinubu’s CONSAT is said to be cheaper and provides more channels than other platforms. The company’s official colour is yellow and black.
