An Appeal Court sitting in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, has ordered entertainment company, MultiChoice, to sublicense some channels to a satellite company, Metro-digital.

The court ruled pursuant to the National Broadcasting Commission’s code.

Justice Olabode Adegbehingbe in his judgment on Wednesday ruled that the lower court erred when it dismissed the suit of the Appellant (Metro-digital), when the appellant proved 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.
