TSTV: ONE DISH, MANY MORE ADVANTAGES

Yippee!! A new train has come to town. And it came with all the pomp and honking peculiar to a new hippy vibe. Imagine Wizkid or Davido releasing a new, hot single and touring the whole of Nigeria with their new bang. Well, Telecom Satellite TV AFRICA (TSTV) is coming down to Nigeria with a big bang of such nature. This is even before the launch date, which is meant to be on the 1st of October, 2017.

From the looks of the name, you already perceive that TSTV operates on the same level as DSTV, GOTV and STARTIMES. This is very well true. But as is becoming apparent to most, TSTV is not just here to compete or perform on an equal level with the big goons. They are actually wanting to steal the show entirely. Talk about the new features they are promising to incorporate into their sleek, compact decoder. It’s massive.

tstv,vtpassAnd as we are, at Vtpass, aren’t slow to recognise value and progress.We have included, in addition, to our list of numerous billers like 9mobile, Airtel, MTN, GLO, DSTV, STARTIMES, GOTV etc, the new big bang TSTV. So, once you get your TSTV decoder, you can start making easy, convenient payment on www.vtpass.com. Well, our customers’ satisfaction weighs deeply on our minds, and we never lose

You might wonder that it’s not even launched. Well, our customers’ satisfaction weighs deeply on our minds, and we never lose any opportunity to please the ones that make us, in the first place.

But why would you want to buy TSTV’s decoder? Appropriately, the management has given Nigerians tons of reasons. You might want to go through them and make a choice for yourself.

TSTV- ONE DISH, MANY MORE ADVANTAGES

GREAT DESIGN

It must be said, for all the big packages TSTV is offering, the decoder does not, in any way, betray the heavy burden. It is sleek and flat, and it has the distinct operations listed on its surface. You can see for yourself right here.

tstv,vtpassPAY AS YOU CONSUME

Now, this is the real deal. Unlike the other decoders and Pay-TV services, Telecom Satellite TV offers a Pay-as-you-consume cable TV service. What this means is that you only pay for what you watch. All those extra unneeded channels that come along with expensive bouquets will no longer feature as you only pay for what you consume. Hence, you can pay for only your favourite channels and leave out the rest. The implication of this is that you can watch your favourite channels on TSTV for as low as #200, #500  etc. And even better, you can pay for your TSTV subscription through the convenient and speedy medium provided by www.,vtpass.com.

DTH

Again, TSTV offers great channels on a Direct-to-Home (DTH) platform that will be distributed on ABS 3A Africa beam, located at 3 degrees west.

GREAT CHANNELS

TSTV AFRICA also offers rich varieties of over 100 channels ranging from Live Sports like UEFA Champions League to entertainment channels like Movie Box, Telenovela etc.

INTERNET SERVICE

You won’t believe it, but TSTV also offers internet services through an HBB TV tech, which is a combination of satellite and internet service for TV services. The internet service will run on a 4.5 GB. And it can be used for video calls and wifi.

PRICE OF DECODER

TSTV seems not to be slowing down with their breakthrough offers, as they have offered a good deal for the price of their decoders. And what’s the price? Just #5,000.

You must agree that TSTV has offered Nigerians a good bargain. And while you are wetting your appetite, just waiting for the release. Remember that you can buy your TSTV subscription by logging into www.vtpass.com. Also, you can pay for your MTN, GLO, Airtel, 9mobile airtimes and data subscriptions, as well as renew your DSTV, STARTIMES, GOTV subscriptions and electricity bills.

API: LET VTPASS.COM SERVE YOU WELL

The first question that will be on your lips is what is an API?

Well, here is a textbook definition:

An API stands for “Application Programming Interface.” An API is a set of commands, function, protocols and objects that programmers can use to create software or interact with an external system. It provides developers with standard commands for performing common operations so they do not have to write the code from scratch.

But not all of us are computer geeks or nerds. Ok, most of us are not. So here are simple, fun ways of understanding what an Application Programming Interface (API)  is:

You buy an extension, which you intend using to charge your phone, laptop and the likes. For the extension to work, you are not going to plug straight to the transformer next to your house, or the wire transmitting electric current to you, right? No, you need an interface. Something that can stand in the gap and collect the energy from the electric current down to you. You need a socket. This socket which is usually connected to a wire on the wall serves as an interface to which you plug your extension. This in response to the interface, enables you to charge your phone and any other thing.

The API is just like that socket, except it is something you can’t see and it has more to do with the internet world.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE

You want to buy rice and chicken from your favourite restaurant. Now, do you just go into the kitchen where it is being cooked or stored? And then demand a plate of rice and chicken? Of course, not, there is an attendant, a waiter. In this case, an interface that delivers your request for a hamburger to the kitchen staff. They in response to your request, hand over the food to the waiter, who will, in turn, place it before you. And then, lunch or dinner is served. Or breakfast, if you are the one that does late meals or does not fancy the routine bread, tea and egg.

The waiter has served as an API, relaying messages for you all in a bid to deliver a service. You must have guessed by now that in the real sense, the person making the request is not a person, but codes. Just like the waiter and kitchen staff responding to the requests are are all codes.

So, simply put, APIS are messengers that take requests from a user end, go to the right quarters to deliver the message.  And then relays back an answer to the user again. In a technical sense, you use an API when you employ the code written by someone else or their database for your own purpose, or to service your own website.

WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW API?

There are a lot of ways knowing how the API works can profit an average online business person. Say, you have a natural hair blog that sometimes needs to display videos. You might not have these videos at all. But by integrating Youtube’s API to your site, these videos can be displayed on your site.

It is through this the API that many videos on YouTube get featured on sites that clearly are not Youtube. Another easy way of using API is having a website where you need people to sign in or login. Because you know Google or Facebook already have the sign in feature which is way professional.  On proper request, you can simply use Google or Facebook’s sign in feature. So that, what you will have on your own website is “sign in with Google or Login with Facebook”. You might be nodding in understanding right now. That’s good, but there is something even better.

ELECTRICITY METERS: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Electricity has, no doubt, been a blessing to every individual life. And though it seems there are more miles to cover before we attain the status of constant, stable electricity in Nigeria, we can’t ignore the fact that right steps are being taken in the right direction. First off, there is the decentralisation of power distribution and partial handing over of power management and administration onto private companies with the purport of ensuring a more effective, less bureaucratic control over the power sector.

Also, the sale and installation of prepaid meters in individual homes have gone a long way in stamping a seal of accountability on the minds of Nigerians. Not only can individuals gauge and estimate the rate of electricity they consume, but they can also control it.  So that the company only charge them for the exact amount of energy they consume. As great as having the prepaid or postpaid meter may be, it poses certain questions which if not readily and rightly answered can put off any consumer. Here at Vtpass.com, we have provided ready, responsive answers to all such questions as can be seen below.

WHERE TO PAY

phcn,electricity,vtpassHaving to go far away to distant outlets can be quite an energy-sapping task. And a time wasting one too.

Vtpass.com affords you the opportunity of doing this, just as it affords you the opportunity to pay for your phone airtime, data subscription and cable tv subscription. You want to try it now?

Pay.

A token will be generated for you in form of an email or text message. You only have to input the number of the token into the meter.

HOW TO PAY

electricity,vtpassWhen paying for your electricity bill, one thing you need to know is your meter number. But oh, you are thinking, my meter number. Isn’t it the one on the card that comes with the meter? Well, you will be right if you are not talking about the long list containing both alphabets and numbers. Because that is only the serial number, not the meter number. Meter numbers are strictly numbers, no alphabets included.

Again, meter numbers are not just found on cards, they can also be found on the meters. It all depends on where you live and hence, which distribution company you belong to. electricity,vtpassIn fact, they are also called account numbers in some regions.

WHAT YOU SHOULD WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR ELECTRICITY METER
