The response rate was 87%. Data were analysed using descriptive and inferential (regression analysis) statistics quantitatively. Findings reveal that Centralisation has a significant effect on customer satisfaction of selected Pay-TV companies in Lagos, Nigeria (β = 0.166, t = 2.271, p = 0.000 <0.05). The study concluded that, though not much attention has been paid in the aspect of centralisation, businesses running Pay-Tv platforms should develop and harmonise suitable structures that effectively handle the dynamics of their business environment. The management of Pay-Tv platforms should pay more attention to internally produced contents which will give room for the customers’ expression and attachment to such brand.
