MultiChoice, the parent company of DStv and GOtv, has revised its subscription fees for its services after a court ordered the pay television provider to suspend its planned price hikes.

The adjustment, which came into effect and reflected on the company's apps as of Sunday, June 16, 2024, sees a return to previous subscription rates across various packages.

Previously, MultiChoice had announced new subscription prices citing market realities such as inflation and currency devaluation. However, a legal challenge resulted in a court directive for the company to revert to its previous pricing structure.

For DStv subscribers, the Premium package now costs N29,500 instead of the proposed N37,000. The Compact+ package has been readjusted to N19,800 from N25,000. Similarly, the Compact, Confam, Yanga, and Padi packages have reverted to N12,500, N7,400, N4,200, and N2,950 respectively.

GOtv subscribers are also affected by the rollback. The Super+ package returns to N12,500 from N15,700, while GOtv Super now costs N7,600 down from N9,600. Other packages like GOtv Max, GOtv Joli, and GOtv Jinja have also been adjusted back to N5,700, N3,950, and N2,700 respectively.

It remains uncertain whether MultiChoice will comply with the court's directive to offer a month of free subscription as part of the ruling. Official comments from MultiChoice regarding this development were not immediately available.

MultiChoice had initially defended its decision to increase prices, attributing it to economic conditions in Nigeria. The company reported a decline in its subscriber base amid economic challenges, including high inflation and currency depreciation.

The latest adjustment marks a temporary reversal in the ongoing pricing saga between MultiChoice and its subscribers, as the company navigates regulatory and market pressures in the Nigerian television industry.

The DSTV premium package is costlier than the minimum wage.
