MultiChoice Africa says there won’t be any price increase for Zimbabweans subscribing to DStv Zimbabwe packages.
This announcement comes as a relief to Zimbabweans who kept their fingers crossed hoping they would not meet the same fate as that of DStv South Africa subscribers.

MultiChoice Zimbabwe managing director Lovemore Mangwende said after considering various issues they settled not to hike the subscription rates for Zimbabweans.
“From falling commodity and oil prices, which affected economies and exchange rates, and the ever-rising costs of satellite usage, there have been a number of external economic factors that have challenged MultiChoice Africa,” said Mangwende.
“However, it had been recognised that we’re not the only ones feeling the pinch and that customers are also suffering, so the relief provided by not increasing the price of subscriptions is great news for Zimbabwean subscribers in particular,” he said.
Efforts are being made to ensure a customer-driven experience in other areas. One of the most popular football competitions in the world, the FA Cup, has been extended without cost to subscribers to all DStv packages.
Pop-up channels such as the recent James Bond festival are being including among the exciting, world-class programming that viewers continue to enjoy. Other added-value initiatives will continue to be offered in months and years ahead.
