Multichoice, owners of DSTV Nigeria, has announced a new hike in its subscription fees by at least 16 per cent.
This development has further compounded the current hardship faced by Nigerians over the state of the nation’s economy.
DSTV subscription has always been laced in controversy following the refusal of the company to allow pay-per-view. Consequently, your subscription cannot be paused and customers pay every end of the month whether they use their subscription or not.
A new price regime announced via a message sent to all its customers on Thursday says a new subscription rate will be applied when the current one expires before renewal.
The new rate will be effective from Monday, 6th November 2023.
The DSTV compact or GOTV Supa+ subscription fee of 10,500 has increased to 12,500.
Also, the DSTV Premium is now N29,500 as against the initial N24,500; Compact+ increased to N19,800 from N16,600; Confam increased to N7,400 from N6,200; while Yanga was moved to N4,200, from N3,500.
GOTV, Supa bouquet has increased to N7,600 from N6,400; Max subscription to N5,700 from N4,850; Jolli package now goes for N3,950 from N3,300 while Jinja was increase to N2,700 as against the earlier N2,250.
Nigerians now wait for the action of the Federal Competition and Consumers Protection Council, FCCPC.
