100,000 South Africans sign Petition For DStv To Cut Prices

6 May 2020


More than 100,000 South Africans have reportedly signed an online petition calling for MultiChoice’s DStv to decrease its prices – as it has done in other countries across Africa – during the current COVID-19 pandemic.


A closer look at the claims reveals that MultiChoice Nigeria recently announced that it would give DStv and GOtv subscribers massive discounts – of up to 44 percent and 74 percent respectively – in an effort to ease the impact of the country’s ongoing socio-economic crisis.


Martin Mabutho, the CCO of MultiChoice Nigeria, told The Eagle that the discounts are a way to thank their subscribers for consistent loyalty.


DStv South Africa, on the other hand, is yet to clarify how it plans (if at all) to take on a similar path for its loyal customers. This is something that local subscribers desperately need, according to EWN.


The online petition – which was rolled out just over a week ago – had accumulated 109,016 signatures as of 29 April 2020 with subscribers saying that DStv prices are too high and that they could no longer can’t afford to pay these exorbitant subscription fees.
