After listing channels and their respective bouquets available on most pay TV service providers in Kenya such as Gotv Kenyaand Zuku TV, it’s only typical that Dstv Kenya gets a similar fair share of scrutiny and appreciation. Dstv which is owned by Multichoice and Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) in Kenya, by far enjoys a lions share of Kenya’s pay TV market segment, not forgetting that Gotv is also their product. Unlike other pay TV providers in Kenya which utilizes DTT and Fibre optic platforms, Dstv transmits its signal via satellite; this explains the vast areas covered including remote locations. Multichoice Kenya has various bouquet products through Dstv for the local market with prices reflecting the quality and number of channels contained. Apart from Dstv mobile product transmitted via DVB-H and currently available only in Mombasa and Nairobi, other Dstv products are available almost everywhere through satellite transmission.

I am a subscriber from Kenya and find that you should substitute AM Hausa, AM yoruba, TV5 monde TV Brazil and RAI Italia with programs that have a language that can be undersood by Kenyans. Some of the above programs do not even have English sub-titles.
we have other nationals in the country not necessarily those who speak english and swahili.
As Anonymous stated above those programmes do not add value to the package, replace them with other programmes are get rid of them all together! There is no point of saying that a package has 35 or so channels when a significant number of them are irrelevant to Kenyans!
the package for the dstv mobile is not as listed supersport 9 and 3 are not there yet u guys charge expensive per week the other channels are irrerevant
…And your charges are way too high…At most Premium package should be going for Usd 50.00
i just hope more competitors come into the market so that dstv lower there charges. they are way too expensive.
i am a compact subscriber and noticed recently that EWTN and Insp channels have been removed, and several other channels. Are there any chances of having these channels back, especially EWTN? its my favourte. you should remove the channels that don make sense to Kenyans. We need these channels back! Thanks
do u ever think of lowering ur charges? i dream of the day i will afford premium with we alwys believe is for the rich. the new channels that u are introducing will go to which bouquet?
DSTV tends to be very expensive nowadays! :\
we want to view dstv all the time as we pay for the services but your charges are too high. can you roll out your services fairly so that more people can be on your service line?
multichoice should post their packages prices on their website.so far they r including us in they r including us in activitys .if they lower their prices it would be unfair to them
can drifta work when plugged in the television apart from a computer?
REALLY 70+ CHANNELS AND I CAN ONLY RELATE TO HALF OF THAT AND I GET TO PAY THE WHOLE PRICE,,,come on
These peple, DSTV, they are very expensive In Tz they are even worse.
I think we should all, in EA , raise up and boycott to these mercilessly exorbitant prices!
DSTV is quite expensive and they should correct on that because people are having problems when it comes to paying,I wish other competitors uprise and defeat you when it comes to paying so that you can change the you charge people when it comes to paying
all dstv suscriber should boycot for a few month.this prices are off the roof for crappy channel with expired movies and series,some not in english.
kindly include some local channels across EA in kenya bouquets at no additional cost
hope am not the only one who dose’t watch DStv when it rains, can they improve on this, i feel cheated.
I am a very worried subscriber on how movies are being repeated on channel 152. Dstv is cheating on us and we shall have no choice but move to other providers e.g. zuku. Something should be done urgently on these repetitions. We are receiving a raw deal on our hard earned money.
be careful about Zuku too — although it is cheaper it just keeps showing the same programs over and over again. I have Zuku and am considering dropping it altogether — 70 channels when the same program is airing on several at the same time — nonsense!
where are your offices in Kisumu?
I am a paid up Compact Sub-scriber and I have no been receiving any of the local News Chanels such as KBC, NTV,KTN CITIZEN.
You have listed these in the banquet.
What is happening?
dstv is very xpensive…you customer services are extremely poor.you dont pick calls..yet we pay you these sums…pull up your socks..pull them hard
please come up with a sports package only we feel cheated.
I am weighing on whether to buy a Dstv or Gotv.
I really want to kno da difference in channels n more importantly in price.
I was a customer of DSTV for a while then I quit. I joined ZUKU. Now am back and it seems DSTV is worse off after 2 years that I was away. I am operating both ZUKU and DSTV at home and all I can say is that PayTV Companies are ripping Kenyans with awful programming. In both ZUKU and DSTV iwatch about 10 channels each the rest are bullcrap. This is totally unfair.
Dstv is really too expensive! I am thinking of migrating to ZUKU.
iam subscriber of DSTV AND sometimes one delays in payments. and you are switching off all channels unlike b4 you used to leave local channnels such as kbc, citizen etc. YOU ARE TOO HASH AND UNFRIENDLY..UNFAIR
i think your GOtv is not good at all the signals are not always responding and i pay the services. what is the use of the antennae it doesn’t have any signals at all correct on that
What are you plans for signet chanel on gotv without sound no signal.secondly,can you customer be given opourtunity to chose a chanel of there own in dstv?
I think dstv company should differentiate languages spoken on different parts of africa,in kenya i dont need housa nad yoruba and portugese or french!!
wanted to find out if it is possible to add channel 203 and 207 to my current package and how much would it cost.
Please make the Premium Package affordable to the majority of Kenyans, lets say 2k per month is reasonable and you’ll have more football consumers watching dstv at home.
DSTV was a hit but now the rate at which it has repeats compared to the pricing does NOT make sense, that quality is worth 2000 to 2500 yet package is over 4500 premium and anything under that is just repeats, id rather premium was cheaper and you have more channels such that by the time youre repeating everything its end month and afew more things have been added to the schedule, rather than being smart and stealing 80% market share you would rather stick with your colonial thinking and charge the highest amount yet the programs are repeated everyday. You must have old managers and creative team, there is no more innovation once internet becomes affordable in Kenya DSTV is dead and irrelevant, we even watch live football on free online stations with multilanguage selections?????
dstv should give a subscriber an option to choose the channels they want to watch, and pay for only that. other than including channels which are not of interest on an individual. Do something please.
hope am not the only one who dose’t watch DStv when it rains, can they improve on this, i feel cheated.
Actually they should compensate subscribers when the connection gets messed by the rain. I wonder where the consumer protection agencies are when we need them in Kenya
cost of subscribtion is too high.its better to lower the cost and have very many customers
DSTV is heaven . If you buy go T you will regret. For 850 you get worthless channels. Don’t buy Go tv . Terrible.
I go to you tube en watch alot of African en other movies..latest…for that matter….but all channels in dstv are repeated day in day out….wat is wrong…is it that you ve gotten enaf cash until you don’t care whether ua customers are entertained or not…..bottom line STOP THIS BAD HABITS OF REPEATING MOVIES AS IF WE ARE NOT PAYING……
Your too expensive …….and yet absolutely nothing to show for it… the best you can do is give us the best of the best for what we rightfully pay for……STOP REPEATING MOVIES IT’S SO ANNOYING! we have the PVR for recording when we need to repeat movies…..
This people don’t want to change but change will change you. I’m so surprized not watching Euefa champions after paying over £10. I feel like throwing away ma phone when i messages advertising Europa league. Who watches that in Kenya? U just don’t know ya customers but know their money, no customer care, no picking off cal just like true thieves do.

some Apple army reach so
o drop da prices bfr da channel drops
I think Multichoice are taking the viewer advantage alittle too far. Channels are changed every now and then without notice.
I personally do not approve of it. Im sure alot of people share the same predicament and are considering other available options.
For example, Supersport 5 is a spill over event channel. Why put all important EPL matches on it. Want to sell Premium package? Get a better way to do it.
We will find better options. I guarantee
I’m so surprized not watching Euefa champions league on my walka tv after paying over ksh 500 that i was instructed by your customer care to pay day before the d-day. I feel like throwing away ma walka. U just don’t know your customers but know their money, no customer care, no picking off calls.
I am a compact subscriber and been paying Kshs 3,250/- after the charges were adjusted upwards in April 2015.
It is surprising whenever I get an sms reminder the renewal fee is always high like 3750/- ?
Why is this so?
u charge too much n give us few channels while others like zuku give more n intetnet. wih less charges
I have been away for three years due to high prices and insufficient watchable programs list. But on going through the above comments from other subscribers I am contemplating not to reconnect.
