MultiChoice recently announced that its subscription prices are to rise by ten percent on 1 April 2016. It will now cost R759 for access to its Premium bouquet, up from last year’s R699.

A message from DSTV’s Facebook page today read:

We thank our customers for their support during the past year and hope you enjoyed all the content on DStv. As of 1 April 2016, MultiChoice will adjust prices for our various DStv packages to enable us to continue bringing you the best entertainment first, delivered across a range of devices, allowing you to watch your favourite shows anytime.

This, of course, resulted in many viewers taking to social media to express their thoughts on the matter.
