[blockquote right=”pull-left”] [/blockquote] With the value of the Ugandan shilling plummeting against the dollar, this news comes as no surprise, as several companies are now increasing their prices to stay in business. According to an internal memo that leaked on twitter, with effect from 1st October 2015, pay TV company DSTV Uganda will increase all their monthly subscriptions up to a tune of 28%. The Premium, Compact+ and Compact Bouquets will cost UGX 334,000, UGX 255,000 and UGX 128, 000 respectively which is a 28% increase from the previous value. The Family and Access monthly subscriptions will cost UGX 73,000 and UGX 38,000 which is a 22% and 21% increment respectively as shown in the table below. We are yet to get an official announcement from DSTV Uganda in regards to these new changes. You can find more details in the source link below.
