Nigel Gambanga Avatar

Here’s some good news for TV viewers – MultiChoice Zimbabwe has announced that starting from the 1st of November, 2016 it will be reducing the prices on its DStv bouquets.

Fees for the Premium, Compact Plus, Compact and Family bouquets are being reduced by between 11% and 21% along with a content upgrade on all DStv packages.

DStv Premium will now be pegged at $72 and it will receive 11 new HD channels. DStv Compact Plus will now be priced at $47 along with 8 new channels that also include more European football.

The price of DStv Compact has been reduced by 12% to $28. DStv family will be reduced by 21% to $17 and it will get 2 new channels.

The announcement marks a major change for DStv Zimbabwe which has consistently been called out for expensive content as well as a price increase that MultiChoice used to effect almost consistently every year.

According to MultiChoice it’s how the company is helping subscribers in a tough economic environment.

    Stop some of us w don’t afford to pay $72 U should put atleast ss3 or 5 n $11 package s tht w cn b able t watch those channels.plz her us plz

  4. Stapler

    It’s still a reap off, considering how much other customers are paying in the region. we still paying 50% more than our South African Counterparts.


      That’s very true, it’s still a reap off

    2. worried

      I would rather stick to my SA subscription until prices are at par

    3. Chiefd

      it’s just a desperate move by Multichoice Zim as they are losing customers to Multichoice SA.
      Many people in Zim are subscribing via SA..
      Reduce more!!!!!!!!!

    4. Ezikamagebula

      Beggars can’t be choosers.
      We should be watching our own Zimbabwean television stations.
      Whatever happened to Econet’s much heralded “Kwese” satellite TV which we were told would be one of the best in the region?
      It was still born I presume.

  5. Jigga

    Still cheaper to subscribe in SA

  6. Madzibaba

    maCustomer anga ava mashoma ka?

  7. Baba Fafie

    Zimbabwe is not growing because of shameless business practices thea always shortchange the consumer. Other dstv customers pay much less for more value, while other regions are benefiting from locally probuced content multichoice zimbabwe overcharges customers and don’t invest enough into local productions. Shame on You Multichoice zimbabwe

      Right it is a rip off in Zim

  8. Lorna Riley

    Having found the alternatives, there is not much that will make me go back to DSTV, as long as you have good internet you can watch whatever you want, whenever you want. The repeats on dstv make life difficult.

    This is really nothing to bleat about Multichoice – it’s not good enough!

    Not surprised as the crap they continually repeat does not even warrant the reduced cost.

    we really like to watch DSTV, we really appreciate what you have done. My special request is you go down a little bit so that someone poor like me can afford paying for Premium. may we can say Premium $50….. i tell you will see how money will flood in you pockets.

  33. masendi ganyamatope

    Its still too much can you reduce for every Zimbabwean to afford this, if not people will not pay and can you check on your accounts that are not being paid on every month.

    Dstv must also reduce the $11 bouquet, reduction must b fair to every bouquet.

  36. pauline tangawarima

    too many repeats anda thats annoying. value for money is the 21st century thing. Reduce prices and more volumes we wont skip our monthly subs hence mre money for you.

  37. Heath

    Dstv is still a rip off.Better to get super fast internet and watch what you want to and when you want to.Instead of all the rubbish on Dstv.Very over priced for what you get.I havent connected for almost 3 months now and it is the best thing I have ever done.Satellite tv is going to become obselete in the next few years.Mark my words.

  38. James

    Does Dstv have a new list of bouquet channels,if so please can we have them. Thanking you in advance.

    Your subscriptions are still expensive. If you reduce your prices so that most of us can afford the premium bouquet I think it will be better that way.

  40. MR Banda

    you guys joke around with us dollars dstv premium should be made affordable even ordinary civil servants

  41. MR Banda

    the access fee for HD/PVR is still expensive, because im an extraview subscriber

    DStv can drop its fees as much as they want – it is still SHIT. Repeats & local SA movies – if I wanted that crap, I would get the eTV decoder. Peopls need to complain on their Facebook page:


  44. Romeo

    Agree with the above post by Anonymous. dstv is showing the same movies on the same channels in the same time slots literally the following day.

    Can also agree that I am tired of outdated, cheap movies. All dstv wants is for us all to subscribe to Box Office in order to see different movies.

    Shape up dstv or you will be loosing customers!!!!!!

  45. Gerald

    Hey, how can I became an dstv agent
