Kenya: Multichoice Kenya Announces 10 Percent Discount

MultiChoice Kenya has announced an offer for DStv subscribers in the wake of the festive season.

The Pay-TV provider will be offering a 10 percent special off subscription rates to interested subscribers who make payments before their subscription expires effective today. This implies that each month a subscriber pays ahead of the service expiration, they get a 10 percent rebate on the subsequent month's payment and this continues as long as the circle is unbroken.

"We are mindful of the current economic challenges and the impact on the purchasing power given the myriad of competing needs. As a family-oriented company, we are always exploring ways to bring our subscribers the best deals and the best home television viewing experience and the 10% discount scheme has been introduced for the benefit of our subscribers. Our esteemed subscribers will have an opportunity to pay less than they were previously paying," said Mr Danny Mucira, General Manager of MultiChoice Kenya.

For subscribers who take advantage of the special offer, the 10pc discount translates to Sh6,192 from Kh6,880 (Sh688 less than the normal rate) for DStv Premium; Sh3,870 from Sh4,300 (Sh430 less than the normal rate) for DStv Compact Plus; Sh2,322 from Sh2,580 (Kh258 less than the normal rate) for DStv Compact; Sh1,548 from Sh1,720 (Sh172 less than the normal rate) for DStv Family; and Sh774 from Sh860 (Sh86 less than the normal rate) for the DStv Access.

Annual subscribers will qualify for a slightly bigger discount - they are eligible for a 12pc discount at the beginning of the annual period on condition that they pay on the last day of their subscriptions.

Mucira emphasized that DStv will continue to avail to its subscriber's quality programming and more value.

"Our investments in Kenya have translated in a better viewer experience as well as more value for money. We have started seeing some of the benefits, with new channel launches, local content and general entertainment content on DStv as seen across the African continent."
