Multichoice adds more content but keeps its prices level

MultiChoice Africa has announced that there will be no price increase for subscribers on its DStv and GOtv platforms in 2017.


This has differed from previous years where MultiChoice announces an annual subscription price increase at the beginning of April for both DStv and GOtv. However,  this year, subscribers in Kenya will not have to worry about a price increase to their subscriptions next month.


“The company made this decision to keep annual subscription prices at their current level, despite a particularly tough year it has faced due to a number of harsh macroeconomic headwinds in the markets it operates in on the continent. From falling commodity and oil prices which affected economies and exchange rates and the ever-rising costs of satellite capacity, there has been quite a number of external economic factors which have created a challenge for us. However, we recognize that we’re not the only ones feeling the pinch. Our valued customers are also suffering so we want to do our bit to relieve the added financial pressure by not increasing the price of their annual subscriptions,” said Philip Wahome, MultiChoice Kenya, Corporate Affairs Manager. “

The company recently added the FA Cup, to all DStv packages. This, along with the ongoing Big Brother Naija, and the recently-launched James Bond Pop-Up channel are just some of the programming that viewers will continue to enjoy on the platform this month.


GOtv has also not been left behind. The platform will be bringing the rest of the FA Cup season to GOtv Plus this month. Subscribers on GOtv Plus can catch the Emirates FA Cup as it heats, Telemundo, the 2017 award season glitz, and glam coverage on E-Entertainment among more exciting shows.

“We’re truly committed to going the extra mile for our valued customers. As much as we’re all suffering, we appreciate the fact that DStv has become such a vital part of many of our customers’ daily lifestyles and they continue to choose to remain part of the DStv family throughout the economy’s highs and lows,” Wahome continued.
