Multichoice Uganda has revised its rates, massively slashing each package subscription by over 40 percent. In an informal communication going around on Facebook and WhatsApp groups, the pay-TV company intends to lower rates to a record low starting September. A leaked email communication states that even the GOtv packages will be slashed but the biggest benefactors will be those on the DSTV brand. The Premium package, for instance, will move from Shs280,000 to Shs219,000, reducing by Shs60000, while the compact plus package will fall from Shs180,000 to Shs129,000. The DSTV Compact package has been slashed from Shs115,000 to Shs79,000 while Family package has been reduced by Shs11,000, from 60,000. Packages of DSTV access, GOtv max, GOtv value and the rest will see no change. MultiChoice Uganda, in partnership with the country’s leading mobile service provider, MTN, recently introduced internet data bundles, that will provide DStv customers with a more affordable data plan to stream live TV and access DStv Catch Up via the DStv Now app to enjoy on-the-go. Addressing media at the MultiChoice Uganda Head office, Patricia Kiconco, MultiChoice Uganda’s Head of Customer Experience and Care expressed her delight at offering active DStv customers an even more affordable way to enjoy their favorite shows at their convenience via the DStv Now app.
