In light of Nigeria’s economic challenges, MultiChoice Nigeria has announced an upward review of prices on its DStv and GOtv packages, which will come into effect from May 1, 2023. According to an internal memo, the price increase is necessary to continue delighting customers with great entertainment, anytime and anywhere.
The price hike will affect all DStv and GOtv packages, with the premium package being increased from N21,000 to N24,500 per month. To retain the old price of N21,000 for up to 12 months, customers must be active by April 30. The DStv Compact+ bouquet will move to N16,600 from N14,250 monthly, while subscribers on the Compact bouquet will pay N10,500 as against N9,000. Meanwhile, subscribers on the GOtv Supa package will now pay N6,400 as against N5,500, and those on GOtv Max expected to pay N4,850 as against N4,150.
To cushion the effect of the price review, MultiChoice Nigeria is offering a price lock offer to subscribers who renew their subscriptions before their due dates. This allows customers to pay the old rates for 12 months if they pay.
In September 2020, at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, MultiChoice Nigeria raised the monthly price of its Premium package from N16,200 to N18,400, affecting other higher packages such as Compact Plus and Compact. However, to provide relief to its customers from the recession in Q4 of 2020 and the impact of the pandemic, MultiChoice Nigeria later slashed its prices on February 1, 2021. But, in March 2022, DSTV hiked its prices again due to economic challenges impacting its business operations.
MultiChoice Nigeria has assured its customers of its commitment to continue providing quality entertainment and to adapt to changes in the Nigerian economy. Customers can also enjoy a variety of local and international content on DStv and GOtv, including sports, news, movies, and TV shows.
