MultiChoice Tanzania yazindua Value Phase 3 kwa kufyeka bei ya vifurushi yva DStv

DStv Premium by 8.15%, DStv Compact Plus by 11.02%, DStv Compact by 16.11%, DStv Family by 9.09% and DStv Access by 4.88%

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better – it did! MultiChoice is committed to ensure that DStv customers get the best international and local channels at affordable prices. True to our commitment to put our customers at the heart of everything we do, today MultiChoice Tanzania announced a huge decrease on DStv subscription prices, effective from Friday 1 September 2017.

As a customer centric business, we are constantly looking for new ways to deliver more value to our customers. As such, we recently added great lifestyle and kiddies programming - this makes DStv Family a fantastic value option. In addition, SuperSport recently secured the rights to broadcast WWE programming live for the first time ever across sub-Saharan Africa, plus we aired the Floyd Mayweather Jnr vs Conor McGregor fight live on 27 August over and above the great coverage we offer of international Football leagues.

“We recognise that our customers are living in tough economic times and want to reward them for their ongoing loyalty and support by providing them with the best local and international entertainment,” said Maharage Chande, MultiChoice Tanzania Managing Director. “We want to do our bit by adjusting the price of their DStv packages to make them more affordable while adding more value.”

“The majority of our input costs are in US dollars and we hope we won’t experience any further currency devaluations or other unexpected increases in costs for the remainder of the year. We will continue to review pricing from time to time, taking into account the economic conditions of our operations,” concluded Maharage.

The new pricing is as follows:

Over the last two years, MultiChoice has stuck to our customer promise by providing best entertainment - combining both quality and variety - at a reduced rate to ensure access to great family entertainment.

  • In February 2016, we brought two of the world’s best football leagues, the English Premier League (EPL) and La Liga to DStv Compact customers. Plus, we added seven entertainment channels and opened up Box Office and DStv Catch Up.
  • In April 2016, we introduced a “no price increase” to provide relief to our customers in the current tough economic conditions.  
  • Then in October 2016, we reduced our prices in some countries and added another six great entertainment channels to the Compact Plus bouquet.
  • Earlier this month, August 2017 we brought all the Spanish La Liga games to DStv Bomba.  We are also bringing Africa Magic Epic on DStv Bomba while Trace Mziki will be available in East African markets. 

“This substantial price drop across our DStv packages reinforces our commitment to ensuring that our customers receive the best possible access to great entertainment and outstanding value, said MultiChoice East Africa Regional Director Stephen Isaboke.

“Entertainment is a powerful way to tell stories that open our minds, bring people together around shared passions, and connect us to new realities. It makes us laugh and cry. It informs, it educates and it inspires. As a Video Entertainment company our role is to enrich lives of our customers across the various territories we operate in,” concluded Isaboke.
