What does this mean for Zimbabwean customers?
We contacted DSTV Zimbabwe to confirm if the price increases could be coming to Zim as well and a spokesperson said:
While we can confirm that Multichoice South Africa will increase DSTV prices in South Africa, it’s worth noting that Multichoice Africa is a seperate business unit that operates independently. In the past two years, we haven’t increased DSTV subscription prices for our customers in Zimbabwe – and in fact, we’ve decreased some package prices and added exciting premium content across various packages as part of our priority to put customers in the heart of everything we do. Should there be any changes to DStv subscription prices in Zimbabwe, we will inform our customers accordingly.
