The existence of dstv padi is somehow difficult for people to comprehend. They tends to question if its list of channels will be anything to write home about considering its price in Nigeria and the fact that their most expensive package cost ten times more.
Padi is their cheapest packages meaning it also have the lowest number of stations.
There is nothing wrong with the number of stations for most people because they care much more about the quality of services rendered by them.
This bouquet comes with just 3 of the Africa Magic stations, the AM Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa.
If you want the likes of Urban, Epic and Showcase, you will have to pay more for them.
Let me state that there is nothing wrong with the aforementioned AfricaMagic stations, they show great movies but there are too much repetition which is kind of frustrating to many of their customers.
If you are paying less than 2,000 Naira for a dstv bouquet, i am sure even you are not expecting anything much other than stations to entertain yourself if and when the need be.
You only have access to one Super Sport and it is SS Blitz. Good news is you can keep yourself up to date to what is going on in the world with BBC World News and some local Nigerian new stations such as NTA, Silverbird, AIT and Channels.
WAP Tv is available here. I am sure you are familiar with the quality of movies from Wale Adenuga Productions.
There are few documentary, kids and religion stations available on this package. You see, it isn’t all that boring.
Guess what? You also have AFRO music English and Trace Naija to listen to every now and then.
However, you should know that you cannot watch the on-going Big Brother Naija reality Tv show on Padi and it is the only dstv package you can’t watch it on.
How about you go through the stations currently available on it yourself and be the judge.
