DStv Price Hike Announced For 2024

Multichoice has announced the new prices for its DStv packages which will come into effect on 1 April 2024. The entire lineup is increasing with DStv Access being hit the hardest by a 7.8% increase. Multichoice says DStv Access is set to receive a big sports update which apparently warrants the price increase.

The most expensive package, DStv Premium, has surpassed R900 a month thanks to its 5.7% price hike that sees the tier go from R879 to R929 per month. The only tier to remain the same is DStv EasyView which is staying at R29 per month.

Multichoice has also launched a special 24-month contract for subscribers. Signing up for this 24-month contract will guarantee the old price remains the same and you won’t be affected by the 2024 or 2025 price hike.

Of course, the contract locks you into an agreement with Multichoice. Should you wish to cancel the contract, you’ll need to pay the associated fees upfront. The contract is available across three DStv tiers:

  • DStv Premium — R879 / 24 months
  • DStv Compact — R399 / 24 months
  • DStv Access — R109 / 24 months

As for the price hike, here’s what you’ll pay for DStv starting on 1 April.
