“In ad­di­tion to the world class broad­cast qual­ity that is our trade­mark and which our sub­scribers will en­joy, they will also have ac­cess to in­sight­ful foot­ball anal­y­sis and thrilling mag­a­zine pro­grammes which will show­case the sto­ries out­side the field of play.

“We have four spe­cial shows specif­i­cally pro­duced to fur­ther show­case the World Cup, Brazil and the fans. Most im­por­tantly, we will also give ex­pert in­sight and anal­y­sis from our un­matched line-up of pre­sen­ters and stu­dio guests,” he said.

As is the norm, Mul­tiChoice Nigeria an­nounced that they will with ef­fect from to­day, slash their de­coder prices from N27, 000 to N15, 500 to en­able Su­per Ea­gles fans and foot­ball lovers in gen­eral to watch the World Cup.

Also speak­ing, Gen­eral Man­ager, Mar­ket­ing, Mul­tiChoice Nigeria, Mr. Martin Mabutho pointed out that due to the late broad­cast of some of the games, the DStv mo­bile de­vices and the Ex­plora de­coder will come in handy to en­sure that view­ers see all the ac­tion and do not miss out dur­ing the World Cup.

“Walka 7 al­lows you to watch in traf­fic, and in the of­fice, while the Ex­plora with its two ter­abytes mem­ory, gives view­ers the op­por­tu­nity to record all the games, right onto the de­coder, and keep them for good”.
