  1. I have last subscribed for over a year now. I want to subscribe now on my Dstv how do I go about it or what do I do?

  2. Where is gotv plus? We expect some form of relief package due to covid 19, not just silently box (gotv plus customers) into another package. That’s poor customer relationship.

  3. Good evening,
    There is non of this new subscription plan like jolly and Jinja on my bank mobile app, I want to subscribe this night just has usual.
    Kindly assist.

  4. Why are they increasing their subscriptions in this difficult period. This is the only way people easy their tensions by watching some of the programs, if their give light. They suppose to be considerate.

  5. This increment, regardless of the reason attributed further corroborate the call for the removal of the monopoly multichoice enjoy in airing European football games in Nigeria. If our legislators are serious, this a time to review that position. More so, the service they offer should have evolved to pay as you go-no payment while your decoder/ TV is turned off.

  6. The increment in charges is unfair at this point in time, meanwhile, I expect consumer protection council to live up to their responsibilities

  7. Good afternoon Am using roalac mobilnig,app. am try to subscribe Dstv access to a customer, but i can’t find Dstv access on the new price list .

    • Multichoice seems to have actually reverted the subscription to your main subscription. Remember, the Pay Tv company have been upgrading its subscribers’ subs a couple months ago. Now, that everything seems to reviving back from COVID-19, especially the return of football, the company is now reverting back to status quo.
