In a statement on Sunday, John Ugbe, the Managing Director of Multichoice Nigeria, said:

We announced last year that we would do everything possible to hold the price barring any extreme factors. However, all our content is purchased in dollars and although we have done everything possible to hold the prices even with the prices of everything else going up, we are now left with no choice but to adjust our subscription prices from May 1.

Our key priority is to put subscribers’ needs at the heart of everything we do and, therefore, in determining the price adjustment, we took into account many factors, including the impact on the customer; current inflation, which stands at 19 per cent; programming costs; and efficiencies within the company.

The DStv Premium, DStv Compact+, DStv Compact, DStv Family and DStv Access packages will continue to be available at varying pricing points to allow subscribers flexibility in price and choice without compromising quality or variety. We thank our customers for their support during the past year,” he added.

    It’s a private company, it’s sole purpose is to provide service and make profit. If you don’t like it, then don’t purchase their product.

    Those Premier league matches you watch live, don’t come cheap! Wasn’t it the reason that Hitv crashed?

    If want to critise make strong arguments not emotional rants. Oh! I forgot naija woman!

    Nigerians sha! I hope you guys realise that :
    1) They are a source of employment in Nigeria
    2) They provide businesses for Nigerian Contractors,helping our economy.
    3) They are one of the few multinational companies (outside Oil and Gas) that have national presence.

    In 2017, NTA still broadcasts analog signals! We hosted Nigeria ’99, Nigeria/Ghana ‘2000, COJA’2003. We even built stadium that nobody uses! Why couldn’t we have upgraded our equipment then? Abi it wasn’t budgeted for?
