Nigerians are not taking easy with Multichoice following the increment in the prices of DSTV and GOTV subscriptions for the second time in less than 4 months.
Some have blamed the Federal Government for allowing the South African-owned company manipulate them.
The price hike is coming at a time Nigerians are experiencing hardship due to the effect of Coronavirus on the economy.
The company while giving reasons for it’s increment cited factors such inflation, operations, the mandatory increase in Value Added Tax, VAT and devaluation of Naira by the government.
Starting from Tuesday, September 1, 2020, MultiChoice will effect its new price regime which is as follows: DSTV Premium will move from N16, 200 to N18, 400, Compact Plus from N10, 925 to N12, 400, Compact from 6,975 to 7,900 and for users of GOtv Max, they will have to pay the sum N3,600 from 3,280.

For those asking for football live streaminng links. Apart from the LIVE football App, you can also watch directly from hesgoal dot com. DSTV should go and chop their subscription. I am downgrading it to the minimum from next month just to watch Soundcity & BBNaija.
