Get to know the premier IPTV/OTT service from Nigeria to the world and why it is the first of its kind of service worldwide!
Pipul TV is a first-of-its-kind Nigerian nationwide IPTV (Internet Protocol television) service. Pipul TV provides a solution to the two critical domestic (African) challenges to online (data network-based) video offerings – poor network service and expensive data subscription fees. Via this unique platform, virtually anyone in such African countries can stream live TV and video-on-demand (VOD) at no extra cost than our flat-rate monthly-subscription fee of N4,000 (as opposed to over N40,000 data-only fees from existing networks). The Pipul TV pilot service launched on October 1, 2019, and has been live non-stop.

What We Offer
Mobile access within Nigeria is data-cost-free, but corporate and )fibre) fixed network and international access would require a pre-existing Internet (data) bundle.
Pipul TV is pioneering an educational platform for TV viewers. No more should parents tell their kids, “Turn off the TV and go do your homework!” Now the homework is on TV. We have two provisions for this service. The first contains video-based lectures and tutorials based on the Nigerian educational curriculum from Primary One to SS3. Pupils can respectively select their classes, terms, subjects, and topics. These selections can be for lectures, reviews, tests, and mock exams. The second is strictly for exam-prep candidates (WAEC, JAMB, NECO, selected professional exams, and so forth). Brief 10-minute (short-form) review lectures on all topics and materials and online mock-test platforms are available. This offering also contains a curriculum for Nigerian Universities and other tertiary institutions, including the 1-year Law School programme.
Under optimal conditions, poor network conditions will not result in a delayed broadcast. The weaker the signal strength, the blurrier the images (but still sharp enough that you can read screen text). Delays would not result from poor signals. In cases of complete signal loss, the transmission will freeze. On regaining network signal (if during a live broadcast), the programme will skip to current broadcast timing or (if CUTV or VOD) start from where it was paused or stopped. Poor network conditions actually should not interrupt your viewing experience. Unless in rare cases where the network is completely down or falls below baseline thresholds. In such cases, the connectivity should degrade. Such failures usually occur due to network congestion or below-baseline network provisioning. When that happens, the available bandwidth to your device degrades from the average (3G) UMTS (2mbps to 384kpbs) to either (2G) EDGE (384-120 kbps) or GPRS (171-32 kbps). Pipul TV transmits buffer-free on 2G (EDGE) as low as 200kpbs and, in rare cases, 2G GPRS as low as 175 kbps. If your local network provides lower bandwidth, your connection MIGHT terminate or freeze. During network tests, we have streaming for as low as 128 kbps. Pipul TV is not operating over the open Internet so, generally, do not expect service to degrade lower than the bottom phase of the GPRS network (200-175 kbps). If you find yourself in a location with such poor coverage, below topline GPRS levels (170kbps), you MAY not fully enjoy the Pipul TV service and should not even bother to obtain a box.

The Pipul TV flagship Miss Nothing (#MissNothing) campaign is a corporate guarantee that subscribers to the Pipul TV service “miss nothing” happening in the world of information and entertainment. Pipul TV commits to ensuring that, as much as possible, all live and recorded events in the world, including news-worthy events, live sports, entertainment activities, and educational content, are made available and accessible to qualified subscribers and beneficiaries. Such a philosophy is not an easy feat to pull off locally, but with the WiGadaDey spirit, anything is achievable.
