MultiChoice Africa has announced that there will be no price increase for subscribers on its DStv and GOtv platforms in 2017.
“The company made this decision to keep annual subscription prices at their current level, despite a particularly tough year it has faced due to a number of harsh macro-economic headwinds in the markets it operates in on the continent. From falling commodity and oil prices which affected economies and exchange rates and the ever-rising costs of satellite capacity, there has been quite a number of external economic factors which have created a challenge for us. However, we recognize that we’re not the only ones feeling the pinch,” said Philip Wahome, MultiChoice Kenya, Corporate Affairs Manager.
“Our valued customers are also suffering so we want to do our bit to relieve the added financial pressure by not increasing the price of their annual subscriptions.”
Every year on 1 April, MultiChoice announces its annual subscription price increase on both DStv and GOtv. This year however, subscribers in Kenya will now get to experience the best television entertainment without the worry of a price increase to their subscriptions next month.
“We’re truly committed to going the extra mile for our valued customers. As much as we’re all suffering, we appreciate the fact that DStv has become such a vital part of many of our customers’ daily lifestyles and they continue to choose to remain part of the DStv family throughout the economy’s highs and lows,” Wahome continued.
The DStv and GOtv platforms offer subscribers a unique selection of the best in local and international television entertainment on a range of bouquets that allow subscribers flexibility in price and choice without compromising quality or variety.
