A few days back, Multichoice announced that they are implementing certain changes in their packages for DStv and GOtv. These changes are meant to take effect from the 1st of June, 2020.
According to an open FAQ document provided by MultiChoice online, the changes are part of their ongoing efforts to ensure customers get improved choices and better value for money whilst delighting them with content that resonate with them.
As surprising as that might sound, the changes are real and would apply to affected DStv and GOtv packages from June 1st, 2020. Here is the full gist of what’s happening:
Removal of two (2) DStv and two (2) GoTV packages
That’s right. The following bouquets would no longer be available for subscription from 1st of June:
|DStv Access Bouquet E36||ACSSE36|
|DStv Family Bouquet E36||COFAME36|
|GOtv Plus Bouquet||GOtvPLS|
|GOTV Value Bouquet||GOTV|
Other packages ( DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus, DStv Compact, DStv Confam and DStv Yanga. GOtv Max, GOtv JOLLI, GOtv JINJA, and GOtv Lite) would remain intact.
The removal of DStv Access might hurt a lot of people as it’s a popular package commonly subscribed for but don’t worry; MultiChoice is adding a new package to their list.
Addition of a new DStv package
In place of the phased out bouquet, MultiChoice would be adding a new packaged called DStv Padi Bouquet E36 (NLTESE36). The packaged would be subscribed for at N1,800 per month.
Change in subscription prices for certain DStv and GOtv packages
Perhaps the biggest news of the coming changes are the adjustments made by MultiChoice in the subscription prices for certain DStv and GOtv packages. Again these price twerks were made to serve customers better, according to MultiChoice.
Below is a full list of affected DStv and GOtv packages:
|Bouquet Codes||Current Price (N)||New Pricing (N)|
|NTTESE36||DStv Padi E36||1,800|
The new prices alongside the removal of 4 packages and the addition of a new one would all take effect from 1st of June 2020. If you are currently subscribed to any of the 4 bouquets bound to be omitted (DStv Family, DStv Access, GOtv Plus, and GOtv Value), you are advised to upgrade to any of the new or existing packages as the old ones would cease to exist from June 1st.
On our part and in the bid to serve you better, VTpass would be implementing these changes on our platform from June 1st, 2020. You would no longer find DStv Family, DStv Access, GOtv Plus, and GOtv Value on VTpass and the affected packages would reflect the new prices in line with MultiChoice directives. Subscription prices of other packages remain the same.
Further updates on this to come. Thank you for using VTpass.
