After we broke the news of Multichoice ‘s potential hike in their subscription fees, the Pay TV company has assured this blog that its clientele will not be hit by any price increase this year. In a statement that partly read “It’s been a tough year for Multichoice Africa. Our markets have suffered as a result of commodity and oil price weakness, coupled with the huge devaluations of local currencies. Most of MultiChoice’s costs are incurred in dollars forcing us to pass through price increases in 2015. Nevertheless, we continue to take financial strain.”

The firm has decided to absorb some of the financial burden and costs that their customers would have incurred and decided not to impose a price increase on any of their DStv bouquets in April as they usually do.  They said “Barring any further external economic shocks, we do not anticipate a price increase in 2016.”

Charles Hamya, General Manager MultiChoice Uganda said. We are extremely pleased to announce that there will be no price increase on DStv subscriptions this April on any of the bouquets. Barring any further external economic shocks, we do not anticipate a price increase in 2016. This means that from next month, DStv subscribers can fully immerse themselves in the exciting world of DStv entertainment, at no extra cost.”
