DSTV, GoTV Customers Lament Over Increased Monthly Subscription 

Nigerian satellite television service provider Multichoice’s customers have protested against the recent increase in DSTV and GOtv monthly subscription fees. 

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Multichoice now holds the exclusive right to offer satellite television services in Nigeria.

Vanguard reported yesterday that Multichoice revealed its new subscription rates early in the week, citing operational costs and the need to enhance service quality.

For DSTV, the premium bouquet now costs N37000.00 from N29,500, Compact Plus N19,800 now N25000.00, Compact N12,500 to N15,700, Comfam from N7,400 to N9,300 and other packages also experienced substantial hikes.

In a similar vein, GOtv customers experienced a spike in their monthly subscription fees, particularly for the Value and Plus packages.

Some Nigerians have widely condemned the announced price increase, citing it as being inconsiderate in light of the current economic crisis.

According to NAN, social media sites are overflowing with angry and condemning comments, and many users are wondering why the prices were raised so sharply.

Facebook user Mr. Ebuka Victor requested the Federal Government to address the company’s unceasing increase and end its monopoly.

He claims that because DSTV is killing Nigerians, the Federal Government needs to act quickly to free the populace from Multichoice’s monopoly.

According to NAN, there is pressure on the federal government to get involved in the situation.

This was followed by demands that oversight organisations like the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) look into the reasons for the price increase.
