DStv announces prices increases for its services
MultiChoice announced that it will increase the prices of most of its products including DStv packages as of the 1st of April 2021.
MultiChoice noted that the price increase is necessary so that it can keep its business afloat and offer competitive entertainment than its rivals.
The price increases come shortly after MultiChoice said providers like Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, HBO Now, and Peacock pose an existential competitive threat to its DStv offering.
These streaming services provide a more affordable offering to consumers and have already had an impact on MultiChoice’s DStv Premium numbers.
MultiChoice highlighted that it has seen a sharp decline in premium subscriptions, which shows the impact of streaming services on its business.
DStv Premium pricing will increase from R819 per month to R829 per month, while the Access Fee will increase to R105 per month.
DStv users must pay the R105 Access Fee when they link decoders in XtraView or use a PVR.
DStv Compact Plus, Compact, Family, and Access users will also pay more from 1 April.
The price to rent a BoxOffice movie will increase to R40, up from the previous R35.
Here are the new prices:
|Packages||2020 Price||2021 Price|
|DStv Compact Plus||R529||R539|
