Multichoice has announced a price increase on their DStv packages as of 1st April 2016. Everyone who is subcribed to DStv should already be familiar with the annual increases, unfortunately this year the price increase would be slightly higher than previous years in terms of percentage. DStv released a statement saying “We’ve been able to keep our fees in line with inflation for the past five years, but this year we’ve been hit hard by the depreciation of the rand. Last year alone, the rand devalued by 29 per cent, which had a major impact on the cost of buying the best content for you. Most of our programmes are bought in foreign currency, and due to the rand depreciation, our costs have gone up dramatically.
We’ve however, worked hard to keep our fees manageable and will keep bringing you the best first – wherever and whenever you want it.”
