MultiChoice Africa, the parent company of satellite TV services DStv and GOtv, has announced plans to slash DStv subscription fees for DStv consumers in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Mozambique..
DStv owner, JSE-listed MultiChoice Group, is cutting the price of monthly bouquets in Kenya by as much as 37% as competition from streaming services intensifies.
According to the report, a representative of the company stated that not all these countries will have the same price reduction changes due to different countries cost structures influenced by local dynamics such as inflation, content costs, foreign exchange rates, local taxes, and overheads required for each business.
“Our aim is to make great entertainment accessible to more consumers in Kenya and we believe this move will grant more of our customers access to the complete world of exciting entertainment channels at a lower price,” the pay-television operator said in a statement.
For South Africa 🌍
“We understand that times are tough in South Africa, and that our customers are under pressure to make every cent they spend count. As such, we’re keeping DStv as affordable and accessible as possible to as many households as we can, to ensure they can enjoy great entertainment for their families,” MultiChoice said in a statement in February.
From most dstv users, they are pleased with the move of multichoice, just as it would bring a great relief on subscriptions for the common man.
