As part of its expansion plan in 2013, digital terrestrial television network provider, Startimes has revealed plans to invest over $94 million (15billion Naira) in the Nigerian pay-television sector before the end of the year.

The Chinese company said the additional $94 million investment will double its investment to $184 million (30 billion naira) before the end of the year, as it had already invested more than the proposed amount in the last two years in a sector dominated by South African company, Multichoice which operates the DStv Satellite Television service, arguably the main satellite TV service in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Chief Operation Officer of Startimes, Joshua Wang, and Director of Operations, Maxwell Loko revealed that the next phase of the company’s expansion drive is to cover additional 15 states before the end of the year, having already established presence in 16 states across the country. He also revealed that the company’s subscription base had already hit one million.
