Multichoice ignores court order, proceeds with DStv, GOtv rate hikes

DSTV Subscription Prices for all its Packages in Nigeria (2020)

Multichoice Nigeria, a prominent Pay TV operator, has increased its costs for DStv and GOtv users, despite a recent court judgment that prohibits the firm from boosting rates.

On April 24, the business stated that it would raise the prices for its DStv and GOtv cable services effective May 1.

Meanwhile, an Abuja competition and consumer protection tribunal (CCPT) determined that the firm’s May 1 price rise should not go ahead.

A three-member tribunal led by Saratu Shafii issued the interim decision in response to an ex parte motion filed by Ejiro Awaritoma, lawyer for Festus Onifade, the applicant.

Despite the court ruling, a check by Nairametrics revealed that the firm has proceeded with the tariff increase as earlier proposed.  

On its official website, the new prices are now being displayed and implemented.
