As Nigerians kick against sudden subscription price hike by South Africa cable TV giants, DSTV, the latest reaction to the price increment comes from a rival pay-TV company – StarTimes.
StarTimes vehemently condemned DSTV’s subscription price increment describing it as ‘insensitive to Nigerians.’
Using its Twitter handle, @StarTimesNG, the company said; “We are aware of the recent price hike by D other pay TV network and sincerely think Nigerians deserve better #PayLessForMore
“This price increment is highly insensitive to the current economic hardship most Nigerians who happen to be pay-TV subscribers are faced with.”
In sympathizing with Nigerians over the sudden price hike from DSTV, StarTimes stated it will reduce the price of its highest bouquet with additional channels and make it more pocket-friendly for Nigerians.
“In view of this, we are happy to inform everyone that our highest bouquet (Classic Bouquet) will be reduced from N2,600 to N1,900 – With the inclusion of Ebony life TV, Nollywood plus and Fox.
“We hope that everyone who seeks quality entertainment at pocket-friendly rates jumps on this opportunity to do so,” @StarTimesNG wrote on its handle.
