The offer comes with a one-month free subscription to DStv Access, and it commenced on 1st October 2021 and it will be running up to the end of December 2021 according to MultiChoice. 

Speaking about the cut prices, Jonah Wegoye the Sales Head at MultiChoice said this is part of their strategy to give back to customers who have supported them throughout the year.

“As part of our strategy to put customers at the heart of everything we do and make our services more accessible, MultiChoice is excited to bring the best programs that suit your family and individual interests at an affordable price.” Wegoye said.

The new price is applicable only for first-time customers, and upon successful payment for your bundle package, a congratulatory message via SMS will be sent to you [the customer] for confirmation.

Joan Semanda Kizza, the Public Relation and Communications Manager at MultiChoice Uganda said they remain committed to delivering the best video entertainment experience in Uganda including providing access to all nail-biting sporting actions.

“MultiChoice remains committed to delivering the best video entertainment experience in Uganda by giving access to nail-biting sporting action, telling the best local and International stories, and up-to-the-minute news, as well as leading international series, movies, documentaries and children’s entertainment,” Semanda said.

She added that customers can also now enjoy new shows, set automated reminders for airing, and explore a wider range of content they may have not been exposed to with the new HD functionality found on the blue button on the remote.

Meanwhile, this comes at a time when the company about a month ago announced a 6% adjustment in subscription fares for some of its viewing packages for both DStv and GOtv. 

With this in mind, customers have for the past weeks been digging deep into their pockets to secure these subscription fees. 

However, the new cut prices now mean a big number of Ugandans will get access to numerous channels of their choice at relatively cheaper prices. Rooted in Ugandan, MultiChoice Uganda is 100% owned by MultiChoice Africa Holdings. The company is home to the prominent GOtv and Dstv.

For years, Dstv like its junior GOtv have been the main go-to for most people in Africa when it comes to watching sports and entertainment shows that cut across the whole world.

In Uganda for example, a big number of individuals and households subscribe to the satellite to enable them to watch live football games preferably the English premier league and the Spanish Laliga.
