You can’t increase subscription fees, Court tells DSTV

A Federal High Court in Lagos has ordered Multi Choice Nigeria Limited, operator of the Digital Satellite Television (DSTV) to hold action on plans to increase its subscription fee.

Justice C.J. Aneke, who gave the interim order, held that it would subsist until the court meets April 16th to determine a lawsuit contesting the legality of DStv.

The restraining order was given following a suit filed by two Lagos-based lawyers, Osasuyi Adebayo and Oluyinka Oyeniji, challenging the increase.

In March, MultiChoice announced a 20% price increase for all its satellite pay TV bouquets in Nigeria. The company said the increase, which was supposed to take effect from April 1st, was necessary for them to continue offering good quality programming to its subscribers.
