Multichoice has jacked up subscription for its DStv platforms for the second time in three months despite a subsisting order of the House of Representatives seeking a stay of action on the earlier hike.
MultiChoice at the weekend, sent messages of an impending increase, effective from September 1.
One of the texts read: “Dear Customer, please be advised of a price adjustment on your DStv Premium package from September 1. Your new monthly subscription will be N18,400.”
Another SMS read: “Dear Customer, please be advised of a price adjustment on your DStv Compact Plus package from September 1. Your new monthly subscription will be N12,400.” The new move is against the ₦10,925 introduced three months ago.
Compact subscribers are to part with N7,900 up from N6,975.
Checks showed that the South African conglomerate increased the package-by-package tariffs by 13.6 per cent, 13.3 per cent and 9.8 per cent.
