CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The TSTV is the first pay per view cable TV in Nigeria; this is a welcome development in terms of promoting social well being and home made products in Nigeria (Ahmed, 2010). The perception of Nigerians towards the purchase of made in Nigeria products might have significant effect on the rate of patronage of TSTV.  There has been considerable interest in recent years on the effects of country of origin products on consumer’s perception of products. Consumers usually have several options in their choice of product consumption (Schooler, 2010; Ahmed and d’ Astous, 2012, 2013; Ahmed and Xia Yang et al. 2013). Consumers’ associate specific image to products from given country; such images are influenced by a number of variables including national characteristics, economic and political background history and traditions (Nagashima, 2010)

The global manufacturing industry is increasingly competitive and concentrated, as consumers now have access to different markets far much more than they have had a decade ago. Consumers can easily compare products, authenticity and prices around the world as a result of innovations in the communications and transportation which has made the markets more complex (Daniel, Radebaugh and Sullivan 2010). In Nigeria today, they are several factors which may affect the consumer perception towards the preferences of home made products; some might be the level of technology, the availability of information resources and materials for the production of products (Ahmed, 2012). Previous studies on the Nigerian manufacturing and service industries have shown that Nigerians have unfavourable attitudes towards home-made products (Koleagha et al. 2013; Njoku 2014).

Another area where there might be variation in attitude of consumers towards home made products and other products from developing countries of the world may be seen in choice for electronic products and service providers (Johnson, 2012). There are so many service providers in Nigeria when it comes to cable television service provider such as DSTV, GOTV and TSTV. The TSTV seems to be the newest technology in Nigeria with beneficial specifications so as the provision for the pause of a particular subscription plan; a benefit that is not on other cable television service providers like DSTV, startimes and GOTV. The study will examine the perception of Nigeria towards the lunch of TSTV.

1.2 STATEMENT OF RESEARCH PROBLEM

Over the years there has been significant growth in the manufacturing sector in Nigeria; the rate patronage to these locally manufactured products will contribute significantly to the economic growth and development in Nigeria. Owing to the fact that technology originated from the western people, many people associate their goods with quality.  Nigerians being one of these that want the best in most cases prefer foreign goods to locally made ones. In order words the availability of foreign products may increase the level of competition in the market of home made products which also will give the consumers space for comparison and preference.

Secondly, the attitude of Nigeria to exhibition programs for the launch of a particular product. Most people tend to ignore the exhibition program (Abimbowo & Jonson 2011). The objective of the made-in-Nigeria exhibition was to “create a sense of awareness for the manufacturing industries in Nigeria so that their products could be patronized like those of advanced countries which are imported into the country”.

Another issue here is the pricing of home made products; most of the home made product tend to be cheaper than the foreign products; they create a kind of image in the mind of consumers; some may see it as been inferior while some with low income may patronize it. It is to this regard that the researcher wishes to examine the public perception of the introduction of pay per view cable TV using Mushin L.G.A, Lagos as the case study.
