DStv, GOtv Not Hacked, Says Company’s Rep



DStv and GOtv, pay-TV platforms have not been hacked but undergoing system maintenance, according to a representative of the company who pleaded anonymity.


This is contrary to the viral tweet that the platforms have been hacked in support of #ENDSARS protests.

MultiChoice Nigeria had earlier in the week sent messages to subscribers that there will be a system upgrade.


The message read: “We will be upgrading our systems from 11 pm, 17 October until 4 pm, 19 October. This is to ensure improved system reliability.


Access to your favorite channels will not be affected, however, payment, self-service will not be available.”

On Twitter, where the news has gone viral, users say that all channels available on the platforms are now free to watch irrespective of the subscription bouquet.


The news is attributed to the Hackers Collective Anonymous who have in the past few days hacked websites of multiple government agencies as support to the #EndSARS movement.


MultiChoice Nigeria is expected to put an official statement on its social media channels soon.
