In response to a high court order banning MultiChoice from increasing DStv service prices further, the corporation has announced its pullout from Malawi.
MultiChoice made the announcement on Wednesday.
MultiChoice raised DStv pricing in July, but the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA) got an injunction against the increase, and the business obtained a delay to allow it to comply.
According to Business Day, the Court ordered Multichoice to comply with the interim order in its judgement on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, August 9, the firm ceased accepting new subscriptions or reconnections, although all existing subscriptions would be honored until September 10, 2023.
But in Nigeria, MultiChoice increased its subscription fees by at least 10 per cent in May 2023 without opposition from the country’s regulatory authority.
