Just as we informed you barely 24hrs ago that MultiChoice Nigeria will be increasing their subscription fee on all packages on DStv effective from June and some packages will be ditched.
Well, earlier today, DStv sent SMS messages to all her subscribers informing them of the new price rate taking effect in a few weeks.
According to the text directed to customers, effective from 1 June 2020 7.5% VAT will be applied to all DStv packages… meaning you are going to be paying higher prices as seen below;
New DSTV Prices Effective from June 1st:
DSTV Access: N2000 to N2150
DSTV Yanga: N2500 to N2687.50
DSTV Family: N4000 to N4300
DSTV Confam: N4500 to N4837.50
DSTV Compact: N6800 to N7310
DSTV Compact +: N10,650 to N11,448.75
DSTV Premium: N15,800 to N16,985
Effective 1 June, GOtv Value & GOtv Plus packages will be phased out and customers migrated to the brand new GOtv JINJA & GOtv JOLLI; packaged exclusively for Naija.
New GOtv subscription fee
So, the plan now is to phase out a 1,900 naira package to a 2,400 naira package, forcing us to either downgrade to a 1,600 package or move to a 2,400 package
My advice is if you can let go of your DStv for now, please do and if you don’t mind the new price increase, then you can continue subscribing.
To those who can’t continue paying that exorbitant prices on subscription packages, Netflix is here to the rescue; the subscription is cheap and doesn’t consume much data if your device is well optimized.
In my opinion, this is not the best time for DStv to increase its subscription price, knowing fully well that a lot of households are running short of finance or perhaps struggling to make ends meet.
