MultiChoice Nigeria, operators of leading Pay TV platforms including DStv and GOtv has increased the prices attached to their monthly services to subscribers.
In a coded sms sent to subscribers’ weekend and Monday, the company noted that the new tariffs will be effective from May 1, 2017.
A careful calculation showed that the hike is about five per cent as the company’s managing director, John Ugbe was quoted as saying that the decision was taken after careful consideration of the market and review of its business operations.
Therefore, effective May 1, subscribers on the DStv premium bouquet will pay N14,700 as against N13,980 currently being charged. While GOtv Plus subscribers will have to pay N1,900 instead of the current rate of N1,800.
Additional findings also show that the rise in subscription rates will also affect other bouquets, as Compact Plus DStv subscribers will pay N9,900 instead of the current N9,420, while Compact subscribers will no longer pay N6,000 but N6,300.
The new rate for the Family bouquet would be N3,800 against the running rate of N3,600, while that of the Access bouquet would be N1,900 and not N1,800.
Current rate for the Commercial bouquet is N1,720, but with the adjustment in rates, subscribers will have to cough out N1,850 monthly.
However, the access fee of N2,160 on the High-Definition decoders and extra view remained the same.
