This one that their official handle has not tweeted since April 2019, but they've announced Oct. 1st for launch. I sincerely hope the guys at TSTV get it right this time around. I really hope they won't raise our hopes and then Amaka us again.— Wale Adetona (@iSlimfit) September 29, 2020

"Satisfying customer's needs"
TSTV chose October 1st(Independence day for Nigeria)as launch date
"They captured the customer's emotions"
As an entrepreneur, you should never forget this.
I took TSTV extremely serious in 2018. I was tweethyping them and heightening the hope of thousands of Nigerians 🤣 The company and its CEO ghost on us without tangible explanation. Not anymore. If you want to flourish, flourish. If you don’t want to, that’s your business 🤷🏻♂️— B h a d o o s k y (@BhadmusAkeem) September 29, 2020
TSTV is supposedly back with a pay per view model. I hope this model is sustainable for them.— ROUVAFE ✈️⛵️🏖🏔 (@IamRouvafe) September 29, 2020
TSTV @tstvafrica will not force channels you don’t watch down your throat, you can select channels you want and pay for it.— Somto Onuchukwu (@chosensomto) September 29, 2020
The subscription is quite flexible and pocket friendly.
I’ll order mine as soon as it drops on Oct 1, 2020.
I wish TSTV and their influencers all the best. 🙏— Bankole Akintunde Adebayo (@AdeBanqie) September 29, 2020
Who is actually handling TSTV PR? I'm not sure these people are ready. 2 days to launch yet I've not seen anything convincing @tstvafrica.— Ayemojubar 👠 (@ayemojubar) September 29, 2020
