The National Broadcasting Commission, NBC says it has no intention to close down the operation of Details Nigeria Limited, the operators of GOTV in Nigeria but instead has resolved to renew its digital terrestrial license for a period of three years.

The director general of the Commission, Dr. Modibbo Kawu, made this known on Friday at a press briefing in his office in Abuja.
The decision he said followed a definitive meeting under the auspices of the National Security Adviser, General Babagana Monguno, during which we were able to resolve the main obstacles.
He said they took decision to renew the license, because the new architecture of Nigerian Broadcasting in the digital era, separates the roles of the content provider from that of the signal distributors in accordance with the government White Paper on the transition from Analogue to Digital Broadcasting.
‘‘Yesterday night, we were able to use the good offices of the National Security Adviser (NSA), to break the logjam in respect of the renewal of the Digital Terrestrial License issued to Details Nigeria Limited for the operations of GOTV. Most of you might be aware, that in January 2018, we had issued a notice, that the said license was not going to be renewed at expiration. That license is actually expected to expire in a couple of days on.
‘‘We took the decision not to renew the license, because the new architecture of Nigerian Broadcasting in the digital era, separates the roles of the content provider from that of the signal distributors. This is according to the government White Paper on the transition from Analogue to Digital Broadcasting.
