MultiChoice Nigeria announced a 17% increase in rates for its DStv and GOtv bundles on Tuesday.
The higher charges will go into effect on May 1, 2023, according to a text message delivered to clients.
The price increase was caused by growing corporate operating costs, according to the pay-TV company.
“Please be aware that your monthly subscription (premium) will be N24,500 beginning May 1. “To keep your old price of N21,000 for up to 12 months, make sure you’re active by April 30,” says the SMS message.
With the increase, the monthly cost of the Compact+ bouquet would rise to N16,600 from N14,250.
Subscribers on the Compact bouquet will now pay N10,500 as against N9,000; while those on Confam package are set to pay N6,200 compared to the previous N5,300.
Also, viewers on DStv Yanga and Padi bouquets will pay N3,500 and N2,500 respectively, as against N2,950 and N2,150.
Meanwhile, subscribers on the GOtv Supa package will now pay N6,400 as against N5,500; with those on GOtv Max expected to pay N4,850 as against N4,150.
More so, the GOtv Jolli package price will increase to N3,300 from N2,800; while that of the GOtv Jinja and GOtv Lite will rise from N1,900 to N2,250; and from N900 to N1,100, respectively.
But despite the rate increases, MultiChoice Nigeria also made a price lock offer to subscribers who may renew their subscriptions before their due dates.
The offer, which is meant to cushion the effect of the price review, allows customers to pay the old rates for 12 months, if they pay monthly before the expiration of their subscriptions.
