Again, MultiChoice hikes DSTV, GOtv subscription prices

In an era of rapidly changing technology and shifting consumer habits, the entertainment industry has seen its fair share of transformation. MultiChoice, the South African company behind the popular satellite television services DSTV and GOtv, has been a prominent player in the African pay-TV market for many years. However, the company has recently made a significant decision that’s raising eyebrows and sparking discussions. MultiChoice has announced an increase in subscription prices for DSTV and GOtv, marking yet another shift in the ever-evolving landscape of television and streaming services.

MultiChoice’s decision to increase DSTV and GOtv subscription prices has not gone unnoticed. Subscribers across Africa have seen adjustments to their monthly bills, which have led to mixed reactions. The company cites several reasons for the price increase, including the rising cost of content acquisition, inflation, and the need to maintain service quality and sustainability.

Compact Plus, which cost N16,600 before, will now go for N19,800, while Compact will cost N12,500 instead of N10,500.

Confam will cost N7,400 and no longer N6,200, while Yanga subscribers will pay N4,200 as against N3,500.

The DStv Padi package will increase from N2,500 to N2,950. The company also moved its HDPVR Access Service, Access Fees, and Xtraview bouquets from N3,400 to N4,000.

The GOtv Jinja and GOtv Smallie packages were also increased from N2,250 to N2,700 and from N1,100 to N1,300, respectively.

The firm blamed the rise in the cost of business operations for the increase.

“On Monday, November 6, 2023, we will adjust our prices across all our packages on DStv and GOtv.

“We understand the impact this change may have on our valued customers and partners, but the rise in the cost of business operations has led us to make this difficult decision.

“It remains our mission to provide the best entertainment and viewing experience to our valued customers, and we are committed to continuing to deliver high-quality content and unparalleled service to our customers,” it said.
