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.

At least i can now freely upgrade to Family its a deal. Will now wait for 1 November before i resubscribe hahahahaha

Thank you for the Christmas present DSTV,hoping 2017 wont make this change!
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
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
I would rather stick to my SA subscription until prices are at par
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..
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.
Still cheaper to subscribe in SA
maCustomer anga ava mashoma ka?
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
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!
It is now better
Half aloaf is better than nothing thank yu multichoice asika rambai muchidzisa tienzanewo nevamwe mucontinet
Still waiting for premium to go down to say $47/$30
How do I get a South African subscription? should I ask my daughter in SA?
thats the best way….your daughter can pay for u
Not surprised as the crap they continually repeat does not even warrant the reduced cost.
Agree with you. Same movies and old ones at that!
Yah what can we say it sounds better but still its too expensive comparing to South africa.
Bt steel maprice enyu achaka kwira raita 11 mari ngariitevo 7 mari
Uye machanel enyu kubva pashayavo anoita 5 mari munoti tese tiriva pfumi here sabc 123,etv ,btv murikutadza kuzviisavo pa 5 mari hamusi kuonavo kuti kunze kwakatsva here
… They will still be showing Steven Seagul, Jean Claud & Dolf Lundgren movies EVERY WEEK, week after week after week … same old 5#1t after week !!!!!!!
Thats for sure
its a very gud move with dstv but must they stop repeating there programs tanzwa!
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 $50….. i tell you will see how money will flood in you pockets.
That is better But at leasy add Mnet Edge on compct plus
Still its too much.
your prices are still unafordable,thats when u find, kuti mangwana tambo sucriber mangwana tambosisa,your price are too much
Dstv in Zimbabwe is very expensive please try to adjust even more
They might drop their charges, but they still deliver the same old shit.
dstv channels are still expensive
they must be
in that order
what about access
dstv channels are still expensive
they must be
in that order
Ive been on family bouquet it seems we getting two new channels but ??? how many channels are been taken off.
I think. Mukadzisa zvirinani
what about the 11$ one u ddnt reduce ….
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.
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.
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.
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.
you guys joke around with us dollars dstv premium should be made affordable even ordinary civil servants
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: https://www.facebook.com/DStv/
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!!!!!!
Hey, how can I became an dstv agent
We ate not that lazy
All repeat you are not doing justice to premium shame
