How to Beat MultiChoice’s Price Increase
While announcing a new rate on its DStv and GOtv subscription packages, effective 1 May 2023, Multichoice Nigeria also offered customers the opportunity to keep paying their old rates instead of the new ones.
The offer comes with economic benefits for customers, as it grants them unhindered access to all channels on their current package while paying the old rates. Here is all you need to know about the offer:
The offer is called ‘Price Lock’: The offer ‘price lock’, is to cushion the economic effect of the price increase on customers. It also allows customers to keep enjoying content on DStv and GOtv while paying the old rate.
