Subscribers to DStv’s Multichoice television service in a number of African countries including Kenya, are set to see a reduction in their fees.
The pay-TV giant has reportedly already notified subscribers in Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda about the new-lowered prices which will take effect on the first of September.
Kenyan subscribers should see their fees reduce by between 5 percent and 37 percent.
The news was revealed by MultiChoice Africa’s head of corporate affairs Reatile Tekateka who said:
“Each country has different cost structures influenced by local dynamics such as inflation, content costs, foreign exchange rates, local taxes and overheads.
“We’ve done a lot of research into what pay-TV costs in other parts of the world and we believe that our DStv and GOtv services offer good value for money in the countries in which we operate.”
