Court orders DStv to suspend increase in subscription fees


dstv-logoA Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, Nigeria, has ordered MultiChoice, owners of DStv, to stop its recently implemented increase in DStv subscription fees.

According to DStv, “the annual price increase, usually in line with the current inflation is necessary in other for it to continue offering quality content to its local and international subscribers.”

In a “class action” case filed by Osasuyi Adebayo and Oluyinka Oyeniji, DStv subscribers, the presiding Judge granted an interim order against the subscription increase for DStv.

“That an order of interim injunction is hereby granted to the parties to maintain the status quo restraining the 1st defendant (Multichoice/DStv) from giving effect or enforcing its planned increase in cost of the different classes of viewing or programmes bouquet, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice,” the ruling reads in part.

According to the ruling, there will be no increase until the court meets on April 16th to hear the case.
