Court orders Multichoice to sublicense channels to Metro-digital

The Appeal Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has ordered MultiChoice to sub-license some of its channels to Metro-digital in line with the code of the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

Delivering his judgement on Wednesday, Justice Olabode Adegbehingbe, dismissed the ruling of the lower court, which dismissed the suit of the Appellant, Metro-digital, despite the appealant proving the existence of the dispute between itself and the first respondent, MultiChoice.

Justice Adegbehingbe also urged the second respondent, NBC, to compel Multi-choice to follow the court order within 21 days.
