DStv Set to Raise Subscription Fees Again Within 6 Months of Last Increase

Dstv and Gotv subscription fees are set to be increased again in a period of less than 6 months since the last increase was done. This is said to start on April 1st.

Multichoice Uganda, the parent company, says that this is mainly influenced by the rising operational costs across Africa.

Multichoice Uganda, a subsidiary of the South African-based Multichoice Group, operates across 16 African countries, predominantly in the East, Central, and Southern regions.

In the  new packages, DSTV premium will rise to Shs290,000 from Shs275,000, Compact Plus will rise to Shs170 000 from Shs160,000, and Compact will now be Shs110,000 from Shs104,000. Dstv Family: Shs69,000 from Shs64,000; Access: Shs45,000 from Shs43,000, XtraView Shs53,000 from Shs50,000. Lite/Lumba has remained at Shs16 000.

GOtv Supa has been increased to Shs69,000 from Shs58,000, GOtv Max Shs52,000 from Shs49,000, while GOtvPlus, GOtv Value, and GOtv Lite have remained at their current prices of Shs33,000; Shs21,000, and Shs15,000, respectively, and a new package, GOtv Supa Plus, has been introduced for Shs110,000.

Despite dissatisfaction from some customers  so far regarding the increment of subscription fees, regulatory approval for the new tariffs has been obtained, and among the main factors contributing to the tariff adjustment are the appreciation of the US dollar against the Ugandan shilling, alongside increases in core inflation rates.

StarTimes Uganda, in a similar move, has also announced forthcoming tariff adjustments, citing the escalating costs of operations. The adjustments affect various subscription packages, with slight increases across the board.
