MultiChoice reveals DStv price increases for 2024

MultiChoice has revealed its annual adjustments to DStv prices, effective from April 1, 2024.

Across DStv's satellite pay-TV range, prices will rise by 3.1% to 7.8%. However, there will be no changes to DStv's streaming-only packages.

Notably, DStv Access will undergo the largest price hike, but MultiChoice South Africa CEO Marc Jury assured that the entry-level package would also receive a significant sports content enhancement. This upgrade includes ESPN, La Liga, SuperSport Variety 4, and SuperSport Blitz.

DStv Compact Plus will also experience a notable increase of 6.9%. The company also revealed that Compact Plus subscribers would soon enjoy an updated channel lineup featuring top-notch original content from Showmax.

Additionally, MultiChoice offers 24-month contracts for customers certain of their subscription commitment. These contracts guarantee fixed prices throughout the contractual period.
