MultiChoice Reverses DSTV and GOtv Subscription Hikes

MultiChoice, the owner of  DStv and GOtv, has rolled back its recent price increase after a court ruling deemed it unjustifiable. 

The decision follows significant customer pushback, particularly in Nigeria, where over a million subscribers reportedly canceled their services.

MultiChoice initially raised prices, attributing the increases to economic challenges such as inflation and currency devaluation. However, the move backfired, leading to customer dissatisfaction and cancellations.

The price rollback brings a little relief to DStv and GOtv customers.

MultiChoice reflected the readjustment on its company apps as of Sunday, 16 June 2024.

While the court-mandated a month of free service for subscribers, MultiChoice’s stance on this remains unclear. The company intends to challenge the ruling, citing concerns about its business model.

The price rollback is expected to ease the financial burden on customers, especially during challenging economic times. Whether MultiChoice upholds the court’s additional ruling on a free month remains to be seen.

The revised prices are:

For DSTV

DStv Premium package: N29,500 (down from N37,000)
