Kampala; MultiChoice Uganda, the home of great Pay TV entertainment, has today announced a new year’s offer that will see customers acquire DStv decoder packages and hardware at a special price offer effective 6th January 2021.
According to a March 2020 communications sector market performance report by Uganda Communications Commission (UCC),it indicated that the total active pay-tv subscribers were standing at 1.58 million. However, with the revival of major sports competitions such as the English Premier League and the UEFA Champions League and other key source-content activities that were suspended due to the effects of COVID-19 in March 2020, the industry is expected to steadily recover as we go into 2021.
While addressing the media, Colin Asiimwe, Head of Marketing at MultiChoice Uganda remarked that “As a continuation of the seasons’ celebration into the new year, we are excited to lower the cost of entry for our new DStv customers by allowing them to make the switch from other Pay-TV providers to the home of the world’s best football.”
Asiimwe added, “The new decoder offer will go for as low as UGX 99,000, will be inclusive of the HD decoder, one-month subscription of DStv Access, and installation.
The company’s PR and Communications Manager Joan Ssemanda Kizza also added that the company remains committed to delivery the best entertainment experience ever with new exciting packages carefully coined for the total entertainment of their clientele.
“MultiChoice remains committed to delivering the best video entertainment experience in Uganda by telling the best local and international stories, and in the same spirit, the offers are intended to create a memorable experience for potential customers who will have subscribed to the DStv platform through this new year’s offer,” she said.
“Backed by the entertainment value delivered to customers in 2020 through new offers namely; the addition of new payment options like mobile money to Showmax, the introduction of Showmax Pro, re-working of sports channels among others, we are optimistic about being able to impact even more lives this new year with new additions like HONEY TV and Pearl Magic Prime that will be going live in February,” she added.
