Multichoice Zimbabwe has announced a price increase coming into effect on the 1st of June 2020.
The media company has blamed the increase on the 14.5% VAT charge but makes sure to remind subscribers that this is the first upward review in 4 years.
|Package||Current price per month||new price per month|
|HD PVR Premium||$76||$88|
|XtraView Access Fee||$11||$13|
Most subscriptions have risen by palatable amounts but premium subscribers and those paying for HD PVR features will have to fork out as much as $10-$12 more than they currently do.
DStv announcement of the price review also makes sure to remind subscribers that they’ve added new channels and also upgrade customers on lower packages to better packages at no cost in the past. Will that make the price review more palatable to customers? To some maybe but considering the state of the local economy – I imagine most won’t welcome the price increase.
