The Nigerian government announced on Thursday that it would review the recent price increases in Multi-Choice cable subscriptions to ensure subscribers receive value for their money.

Adamu Abdullahi, the Acting CEO of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), made this statement during an interview on Channels TV in Abuja.

Multichoice Nigeria had recently announced a price hike for its DStv and GOtv packages, just four months after the previous increase. The new prices, effective from May 1, 2024, impact both new subscribers and existing customers renewing their packages.

Multichoice Nigeria attributed the price adjustment to the rising cost of production in the country. For example, the DStv Premium Package increased from N29,500 to N37,000, while the Compact Plus package increased from N19,800 to N25,000.

The Compact package rose from N12,500 to N15,700, and the Confam package increased from N7,400 to N9,300. Yanga moved from N4,200 to N5,100, Padi from N2,950 to N3,360, HDPVR Access Service from N4,000 to N5,000, Access fees from N4,000 to N5,000, and XtraView from N4,000 to N5,000.

For GOtv packages: Supa+ increased from N12,500 to N15,700, Supa from N7,600 to N9,600, Max from N5,700 to N7,200, Jolli from N3,950 to N4,850, Jinja from N2,700 to N3,300, and Smallie from N1,300 to N1,575. Multichoice CEO, John Ugbe, explained in the email that the price adjustment would enable the company to deliver more quality content to subscribers’ homes nationwide. Some Nigerians have criticized the price hike, calling it unjustified.
