A glance at this article will get you thinking if you are currently spending so much on pay-TV entertainment.
#FeatureByStarTimes – Being an avid fun seeker but who is also price-conscious, I decided to compare various pay-TV offerings in the market.
The shocker for me, maybe because I haven’t really paid attention, is that when it comes to getting abreast with TV entertainment that gets the family glued yet is so budget friendly, StarTimes channels are your top stop no matter what genre of entertainment you are looking to watch.
I realized that within the value-for-money segment (mid and low packages), StarTimes has the largest collections of Nollywood, telenovelas, and Bollywood content. Probably at a ratio of 3:1.
Just one thing drew my attention to StarTimes. It’s the top ratings from movie enthusiasts about Ile-Alayo series featuring crème la crème in Nollywood. Albeit I missed it. But then I was able to catch up on the StarTimes-ON app. Whilst enjoying the 26 episodes’ series, I came across other entertaining content that got me hooked.
But not so many know about these hidden gems.
Below is a brief analysis of StarTimes 2022 price and the interesting content you can satisfy your entertainment craving:
StarTimes packages and their Bouquet prices
The StarTimes Nova Bouquet is the cheapest package on StarTimes.
