Recently the broadcasting pay tv, announced that it would effect a price adjustment of five per cent on all its DStv and GOtv packages from May 1, 2017.

On Wednesday at a plenary session of members of the lower chamber, the lawmakers mandated its Committee on Information and Culture, National Orientation, Ethics and Values to meet with the Nigeria Communications Commission, other relevant agencies and Multichoice to address the issues raised.

The resolution by the House followed the adoption of a motion entitled: “Need to Investigate the Exorbitant Charges and Refusal of Multi-choice Statelite Television to Adopt Pay- as -You -Go Pakage Option”, sponsored by Abbas Tajudeen.

“In 2013, the monthly subscription increased by 7-10 percent in 2014 by 10-15 percent and in 2015 by 10-22 percent and just recenltly, the company sent a notification of another price increase with effect from May

“DSTV does not have a pay- as- you- go plan like most similar communication companies around the world , thereby making its subscription plan to expire at the end of the monthly subscription period, whether or not the subscriber uses the services,” Tajudeen said in his motion.
