Pay-TV provider Dstv has slashed monthly subscription fees alongside a massive content upgrade on all its packages. Announcing the new prices that will take effect next month, MultiChoice Kenya Managing Director, Eric Odipo Kenya recognises customers are living in tough economic times and the business is ever-cognisant of their need to access quality content. “We want to reward them for their ongoing loyalty and support by providing them with the best local and international entertainment. We will do our bit by adjusting the price of their DStv packages to make them more affordable while adding more value.” “The majority of our input costs are in US dollars and we hope we won’t experience any further currency devaluations or other unexpected increases in costs for the remainder of the year. We will continue to review pricing from time to time, taking into account the economic conditions of our operations,” He added. In the new prices, customers on DStv premium, Compact Plus, compact and Access will enjoy 3.42 per cent, 4.15 percent, 9.86 percent and 9.52 per cent drop in monthly subscription respectively.
In August, Multichoice introduced all the Spanish La Liga games to DStv Family and added 3 new international channels (BBC Lifestyle, Food Network and Cbeebies). All countries – excluding Nigeria and Ghana – will also get Africa Magic Epic on DStv Access while Trace Mziki will be available in East African markets. We remain committed to delivering the best league in the world – The Premier League – straight to your living rooms. And beginning September 1st, for much less. “This substantial price drop across our DStv packages reinforces our commitment to ensuring that our customers receive the best possible access to great entertainment and outstanding value, said Odipo. Currently, a DStv Zappa decoder retails at Sh5,000/- while the Explora decoder is going for Sh10,499/-. Both decoders come as full kits with satellite dish, cabling and connectors.] Entertainment is a powerful way to tell stories that open our minds, bring people together around shared passions, and connect us to new realities. It makes us laugh and cry. It informs, it educates and it inspires. As a Video Entertainment company our role is to enrich lives of our customers across the various territories we operate in, he added.
