MultiChoice Nigeria has announced that there will be no price on DStv subscriptions this April.
It’s been a tough year for Multichoice Nigeria as their markets have suffered as a result of commodity and oil price weakness, coupled with the huge devaluations of local currencies.
Most of MultiChoice’s costs are incurred in dollars, and that forced them to go through price increases in 2015. To assist their users, the Pay-TV has decided to not impose a price increase on any of its DStv bouquets in April as they usually do.
In February, the Pay-TV launched two new SuperSport channels aimed at bringing the EPL, La Liga and the EURO 2016 tournament to DStv Compact subscribers.

This April, DStv channels will showcase the best and latest upcoming new seasons of popular series including the highly-anticipated Season 6 of "Game of Thrones" starting on M-Net Edge, Express from the US, along with the brand new telenovela, "Hush," on Africa Magic Showcase and "The Voice: Nigeria."
The Managing Director for MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, says: “We are extremely pleased to announce that there will be no price increase on DStv subscriptions this April on any of the bouquets. Barring any further external economic shocks, we do not anticipate a price increase in 2016. This means that from next month, DStv subscribers can fully immerse themselves in the exciting world of DStv entertainment, at no extra cost.”
Following months of investigation, the CPVC recently established that the pay-TV had breached consumer rights. MultiChoice Nigeria thereafter stated its commitment to resolve the issues/violations brought against it by the Consumer Protection Council (CPC).
