Owner of Dstv Kenya, MultiChoice revises prices upwards by 14pc on rising operation costs

MultiChoice Kenya is set to increase Dstv subscription prices by as much as 14 percent starting September 1st 2020. The company which has been operational in the country for more than five decades and has been the main source of major sporting events such as the English premier league issued a notice to subscribers of its intended cost revision in a bid to cover rising operational costs.

Under the revised bouquet costs, premium customers will now pay Ksh. 7,800 monthly, an increase of 5.8 percent from a previous Ksh. 7,370. Customers on the Compact Plus package will instead pay Ksh. 4,700 from a previous Ksh. 4,420 which reflects an increase of Ksh. 280 or 6.6 percent hike.

Those on the Compact package will now pay Ksh. 2,600 up from Ksh. 2,455 while those on the Family and Access packages will now pay Ksh. 1,350 and Ksh. 900 from a previous Ksh. 1,180 and Ksh. 885 respectively.  

Closure of hotels and entertainment joints which have been major clients to Dstv as a result of the current pandemic affected the company’s revenue flow and suspension of major sporting events had dealt a major blow that saw the company reduce prices to entice customers.
