Kenya consumers need answers from DSTV on high subscription costs
No question, Kenya is a key market for the South Africa based MultiChoice. Kenyans love the English Premier League. Their two sons Wanyama and Origi play in EPL.
Kenyans also love the West Africa "Naija" movies. MultiChoice Kenya is owned 40% by the national broadcaster, KBC.
When GTV existed, DSTV Kenya rates were reasonable. Since competition collapsed, monthly subscriptions have hit the roof. Excuses from DSTV blame it on the foreign exchange rate - over a depreciating shilling.
But that is the tip of the iceberg. A closer look at the Premium bouquet pricing in South Africa and West Africa is 699 Rands compared to an equivalent 1206 Rands (at the rate of R1 to Sh7.8).
The 2015/16 EPL has turned into a dull moment for tens of thousands of DSTV subscribers whose package #SS3 does not have #SS5 activated. Even Premium subscribers with Walka can no longer access #SS5.
As such, Calling on all DSTV consumers in Kenya. Even if you can afford, please sacrifice for the rest of Kenyans consumers #BoycottDstvKE renewal for the month of September until we receive answers.
