Subscribers to the new Digital Satellite Television (DStv) have protested against its new tariff hike, which takes effect today.
They called on the Federal Government to prevail on South Africa’s Multichoice, owners of the platform, to discard the plan.
While Multichoice blamed the price hike on the current economic situation in the country, a subscriber, Tayo Adedugbe disclosed that only in May 2017, it increased its price across all packages. “And now, about 14 months after, it has announced another price hike on its DStv platform,” he said.
He lamented that even if the firm is struggling to operate as it claimed, it doesn’t justify pushing the cost to subscribers. “We just won’t take it,” he declared.
