You can learn how to install TStv decoder and mount the dish outside with all necessary requirements without consulting a professional dish installer.

As expected, the satellite dish components usually come in separate parts and must be arranged in such a way that makes it easy to receive signals and withstand strong wind. The arrangement of the dish components depends on where you intend mounting it on. If you are going to mount it on a root, wall or wooden fetcher board of the building. Follow below guidelines to setup the dish for maximum and better signal reception πŸ“Ά.

Meanwhile, if this TStv installation guide is too technical for you to comprehend, you can call the services of a professional dish installer to do it for you. We have one here in the person of Paul Asuquo. You can get his contact via the comments box once he comments.


  1. Paul Asuquo, job well done😁. I'm proud of you

  2. nice buh day won't still b able to get d setting na video go gud

  3. Thanks for the update wizy but, still do t understand what you mean by pay as you go.
    Is it being broadcasted with the power of the subscription (mb/GB)? Or the streaming is a different thing entirely?

    1. Pay as you go enables you to pause your subscription for a period of seven days in a month.

      Also note that the pause functionality is only applicable to those with 3000 subscribers.

      Streaming is only an added feature.

    2. No bro, the data is an added incentive. What i mean by pay as you consume is that the TSTV Pay AS You Go pause service i.e. the ability to pause your subscription when not in use would be available to those that would go for the maximum subscription which is the monthly N3,000 package and you would only be able to pause subscription not more than 7 days, thereby allowing you 37 days at most for your monthly subscription. So don’t expect to use your 1 month subscription from January to December in the name of pausing or expect to user 1 day N200 subscription for 1 month.

  4. Permit me to deviate a bit. The caption says how to and after going through the article, i have not seen the how to.

    Anyways, here are my contacts 07084099875 or 07031618552.

    1. Yes and I said something about the post not being complete yet. I highlighted that it will be updated with time.

      So readers can bookmark and come back later as more information on dish installation guide is added.

      For now, the available information here is still vital for those installing the dish because i have received many questions centering on dish position and all that.

  5. I just hope that with time they get it right and make the best out of it.

  6. Although the picture quality of yesterday was very discouraging, i hope this post will help interms of offering a better quality signal for a better reception?

  7. A very big thanks to Mr Paul and to you sir wizy

  8. There has been a change in their frequency and the one posted here is no more valid.

    Please i will update the house with the latest news upon getting back home from work tonight.

    Let's keep faith with TSTVAFRICA and hope for the better.

  9. Based on what i gathered this morning, TSTVAFRICA is busy doing everything humanly possible to gain our trust.

    I need to confirm the new parameters first before releasing same to wizytechs

  10. Thanks for the informative article WIZY and my follower engineer Paul asuquo great job from you.

    1. Abeg no carry reggae come spoil my blues.

      I'm not an engineer please.

      You want make them sue me?


  11. Why the noise if we cannot get the system even with our money. Again same way even more noise was made when FSTV, HITV, CONSAT and other networks came on air. Pls I suggest u slow down the hype and allow the product to speak for itself.

  12. Paul and wizy thanks fr wat u have been doing so far😊😊😊😊😊

  13. I just wish tstv success😍😍😍😍


    Startimes Decoder Twitter handler might just have triggered the anger of Nigerians, after she gave some unprofessional savage responses to customer’s questions on Social media.

    It all started when the account announced that their handler, Oluwaseun will be taking in questions: 
    “I am Oluwaseun (StarTimes Social Media Handler), feel free to ask me anything today. #STopenDay”

    A twitter user identified as Isaacogieva decided to ask why the management decided to remove a station from airing: 

    “why did the management removed Get TV from the list of stations showing on star times.”.

    And her response was; “Bros, na only Get TV u dey watch for our platform?”

    Another user declared: 
    “Your subscribers are not here. They are busy watching Indian Soap.” .. 

    The handler replied: “Atleast they are busy doing something, what are you doing?”

    Another user, Emmanuel Usoro queried; 
    “Your video quality is not too good. What is the plan to improve on it” .. 

    The handler replied: “Bros na antenna you dey use abi? Upgrade to dish"

    Then the shade for TSTV came when a twitter user asked: 
    “Why can’t startimes give us Wifi like TSTV promised” .. 

    The handler response was: “We are a pay TV operator. We don’t run a cyber cafe nor make empty promises.”
