FCCPC To Review Fresh Price Hike Of DStv, GOtv Packages


The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) says the recent price increases in MultiChoice cable subscriptions will reviewed by relevant stakeholders to ensure subscribers in Nigeria get value for their money.

The Acting CEO of FCCPC, Adamu Abdullahi,  in a report monitored on  Channels Television  Dateline Abuja programme on Thursday disclosed this.

During the interview, he provided an update on the summons issued to the owner of a Chinese store in Abuja accused of discriminatory and sharp practices.

He also commented on the adherence to the order given to the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company, stating that sanctions are imminent for all verified infractions identified by the agency.

MultiChoice, a major satellite television service in Sub-Saharan Africa based in South Africa, recently announced fresh increases in prices on the DSTV and GOtv packages, saying the rise in the cost of business operations necessitated the increase.

According to the company, the increment would take effect on May 1, 2024.

The Premium package on DSTV which used to cost N29,500, would now go for N37,000, while the Compact Plus which currently goes for N19,800, has been increased to N25,000.
