Do this now or you may soon stop getting TV signals if you reside in lagos

As Lagos state switches off analogue to digital transmission, millions of Lagos residents will stop receiving TV signals, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has revealed.

Acting Director-General, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba, who spoke in Lagos during the official Digital Switch Over (DSO), said effective yesterday, no fewer than five million households would be able to view over 30 stations free of charge as long as they have Set Top Boxes (STBs).

Some guests that wanted to buy the STB yesterday complained about its cost. A lady who identified herself simply as Lynda, said the price of the Box was too high at N12,500.

She said: “N12,500 is on the high side in an economy like ours. If the government really wants to help the masses as it is professing now, the Box should be between N1,000 and N1,500,” she said.

Prof Idachaba said the commission has licensed 140 terrestrial television stations and indigenous STB manufacturers.
