MultiChoice has raised the prices of its DStv and GOtv packages by about 17 percent.
According to MultiChoice Nigeria, the price review was due to the increasing costs of business operations in the country.

The text message read, “Please note that from May 1, your monthly subscription (premium) will be N24,500. To retain your old price of N21,000 for up to 12 months ensure you are active by April 30.”
Subscribers on the Compact+ bouquet will now pay an additional N2,350 with the new price of N16,600 up from the N14,250 previously paid monthly.
The Compact bouquet will now cost N10,500 as against N9,000 with an increase of N1,500 while Confam package subscribers are set to pay N6,200 as against the previous N5,300.
Customers of the DStv Yanga and Padi bouquets with the new price will pay N3,500 and N2,500 respectively, up from N2,950 and N2,150.
For GOtv subscribers, the Supa package will now cost N6,400 as against the former price of N5,500.

MultiChoice Nigeria however made an offer to its customers who may renew their subscriptions before their expiry dates.
The offer allows customers to pay the old rates for 12 months if they pay monthly before the expiration of their subscriptions.
A similar price increase by an average of 4.3% across DStv’s satellite pay-TV portfolio was also effected on April 1, 2023, in South Africa by MultiChoice. However, the price percentage increases were overall smaller than in previous years.
