Nigerians on Friday took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to berate the management of DSTV, owned by Multichoice, over the increment of the cable television’s subscription tariffs.
The attack on DSTV is coming after Naija News had reported earlier that the House of Representatives Ad Hoc Committee Investigating the Non-Implementation of ‘Pay As You Go’ Tariff by Satellite Broadcast Service Providers asked DSTV on Wednesday to appear before it next Tuesday.
Earlier, the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) was directed by the House of Reps to ask DSTV to reverse its subscription rates introduced on June 1, 2020. DSTV is being probed for allegedly cheating its Nigerian subscribers by restricting them to prepaid plans.
On seeing the message from DSTV about the tariff hike, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to berate the management of DSTV, owned by Multichoice.
Naija News captured some of the reactions below…
DStv has successfully bribed lawmakers in this country for this impunity to continue. Some people in government raised the issue of the costly price for DSTV bouquet, now no one is talking price is up again. Please we need #dstvpayperview , retweet if you are concerned #bbnaija pic.twitter.com/7rJcJKiaW1

What was the point of the summon
If only you know that most of Senators and House of representatives members don’t pay for their DSTV subscription. DSTV gives them exclusive right to premium packages all year round.
