DSTV Increases Subscriptions Costs

DSTV customers will from September 1, 2022 have to cough up more cash to access the subscription TV service.

This comes after Multichoice said on Tuesday that it would be raising subscription prices for all bundles by September 2022. MultiChoice is the owner of the direct broadcast satellite service known as DStv (Digital Satellite Television).

A comparable pricing adjustment will take place on September 1, 2022, according to DSTV Uganda. The packages include Access, Family, Compact, and Premium.

After subscribing to one of the existing packages, users can select additional packages at an additional cost. After a pricing review, premium monthly rates would rise to Sh8,900 in September from Sh7,900 in 2021, where they were at the time.

Even though it was up against fierce competition from online streaming websites and platforms last year, Multichoice increased its subscription rate. Inflation, which had an impact on the company’s operations, was blamed for the decision.
