Contrary to the viral tweet that they have hacked the Pay-TV platforms DStv and GOtv, a representative of the company who pleaded anonymity said that they didn’t hack the platforms but undergoing system maintenance.
MultiChoice Nigeria had earlier in the week sent messages to subscribers that there will be a system upgrade.
The message read:
“We will upgrade our systems from 11 pm, 17 October until 4pm, 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 free to watch irrespective of the subscription bouquet.
They attribute the news to the Hackers Collective Anonymous who have in the past few days hacked websites of multiple government agencies as support to the #EndSARS movement.
