MultiChoice Nigeria has announced an upward review of prices on its DStv and GOtv packages.
According to a text message to customers, the new rates will begin from May 1, 2023.
“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”, the text message reads.
With the fresh rates hike, the price on the Compact+ bouquet would move to N16,600 from N14,250 monthly.
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.
Under the new price regime, 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.
Also, 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 rates 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.
Similarly, it grants subscribers (who pay for one year at a go, before the new prices kick in) the opportunity to pay the old tariffs.
