House of Reps asked MultiChoice to adopt ‘pay as you go’ package option for DSTV

House of Reps asked MultiChoice to adopt ‘pay as you go’ package option for DSTV

The House of Representatives yesterday passed a resolution aimed at compelling MultiChoice Nigeria, a Pay-TV service provider to adopt the “ pay as you go” payment package option. 

Adopting a motion moved by Mr. Abbas Tajudeen at the plenary presided by the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Sulaimon Yussuff Lasun, the House mandated its Committee on Telecommunications to interface with NCC, the Consumer Protection Council and the MultiChoice to address concerns expressed by Nigerians over the planned increase in the prices of the various bouquet on offer on DStv.


Lasun directed the committee to report back to the House in eight weeks for further legislative action. Tajudeen maintained that the ever increasing prices of the various bouquet on offer by MultiChoice and its refusal to offer a ‘Pay as you go’ package option on its bouquet is causing a financial strain on its subscribers. 

The lawmaker observed that it has been the practice for the company to increase the prices of its various packages almost on a yearly basis, noting that in 2013 the monthly subscription increased by 7–10%; in 2014 by 10-15% and in 2015 by 10–22%, and just recently, the company sent a notification of another price increase with effect from May 1, 2017.
