Changes in DStv and GOtv Packages From 1st June 2020.

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 E36ACSSE36

GOtv Plus BouquetGOtvPLS
GOTV Value BouquetGOTV

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.

TOONAMI! Finally on DSTV and GOTV

If you are not a cartoon freak, enthusiast, or diehard Superheroes’ fan, you can very well skip this read. It’s cool, we would forgive you.

But if you’re part of us; whether as a kid who looks forward to catching all the superheroes showdowns on the weekend or as an adult who stays late at night to peep on cartoons alone when everyone is asleep (yeah, we know how you feel, it can be a bit embarrassing, but adults love cartoons too); stay tuned! You don’t want to miss the gist about DStv and GoTV new pop-up cartoon channel, TOONAMI!

Late last month, DStv and GoTV announced the launch of the new Superheroes channel, TOONAMI to air as a pop-up channel on DStv channel 300 and GoTV channel 71. TOONAMI is a WarnerMedia’s channel and has been in existence across Africa for the past three years. The channel is designed for kids especially between the ages of eight and 12, offering non-stop and 24-hour top-rated cartoon series such as DC Comics’ Batman, Superman, The Green Lantern, Young Justice, and The Justice League as well as popular animated series Teen Titans, Throne of Atlantis, Monster Mayhem, among others.  Wow! Talk of Superheroes overdose. . .

So we decided to wait a bit, enjoy the channel and review all the promises of ‘action’ and ‘pulse-raising‘ enjoyment made by DStv and GoTV when launching this new channel. Trust us, it is as entertaining as promised! There’s something for everyone across all ages of cartoon lovers, from standard 2D graphics to 3D Green Lantern cartoons. Enjoy epic throwbacks of DC Comics’ Superman or hook yourself on new series of Young Justice. The Batman storylines would keep you glued to your TV (don’t say we didn’t warn you). You simply wouldn’t be able to change the channel once you start!

TOONAMI is available on all DStv packages, GOtv Max, Jolli, and Plus packages, so you wouldn’t be left behind no matter your subscription plan. To start enjoying this channel, simply subscribe to your DStv and GoTV right away.
