MultiChoice Nigeria has increased the prices of its DStv and GOtv packages.
MultiChoice Nigeria is a subsidiary of MultiChoice Africa, who owns DStv and GOtv.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the company attributed the increase in price to inflation and the increasing cost of doing business in Nigeria.
“In light of the rising costs of inflation and business operations, we have had to review the price of our packages to keep delighting our customers with great entertainment, anytime and anywhere.
“Therefore, from April 1, 2022, a new pricing regime for both our DStv and GOtv packages will be in effect,” it said.
According to Multichoice, the priced of its DStv packages are as follows:
Compact + (N14,250)
Xtraview + PVR access fee (N2,900)
The new prices for GOtv packages are:
Gotv Max (N4,150)
GOtv Jolli (N2,800)
GOtv Jinja (N1,900),
GOtv Lite (N900).
To cushion the price adjustments, Multichoice said customers who pay before April 1, 2022, would be eligible to pay the old price.
Also, customers who pay consistently on time (before their due dates) for a period of 12 months would also be eligible to pay the old price.
“Customers who pay for 10 months upfront on the new price will get the 11th and 12th month free,” the statement added.
The company said the price adjustments would enable it to serve customers better.
