It’s that time of the year again – MultiChoice South Africa has announced increases for DStv prices 2023 for Premium, Family and other packages except EasyView.
In a statement on Tuesday (14 February), MultiChoice SA said the price increases are “far lower than the projected CPI [Consumer Price Index] for 2023.”
“The pressure that consumers are facing due to remnants of the pandemic, as well as the continued rolling blackouts nationwide, has not been lost on us,” the group added.
“These nominal adjustments help DStv to ensure that South Africans continue to enjoy the best value and unrivalled access to entertainment, anywhere, anytime, and at the most affordable price.”
