Enterprise Television- Startimes Subscribers Hit 4 Million Mark, Invests $220M in Nigeria

Chinese pay per view television, StarTimes, has announced that it now has about four million customers on the network.

The figures were given by the Vice President of the company, Mrs. Guo Zi Qi, at the Chinese New Year and Animation Festival in Abuja.

Guo said StarTimes has invested over $200 million in Nigeria in the past nine years in the development of different television contents for its viewers.

The Executive Director, National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) Adedayo Jones, has appealed to China to assist in strengthening the Nigerian film industry by curbing the influx of uncensored and unclassified films imported through China from being distributed to Nigeria.

According to Jones, Animation has contributed to the Chinese economic growth. While Nigeria and China are the biggest trading partners in goods, there are many opportunities between both countries if Startimes and the Chinese partners can collaborate with NFVCB to develop the film industry.

He added that Nigerian producers and Chinese film makers stand to benefit more if that aspect is improved upon.
