About multi choice Uganda
Multichoice, a subsidiary of South African-based Media giant Naspers, has until recently been the lion of satellite Pay TV in Africa. The company has reached over 3 million household in Sub-Saharan African excluding South Africa with its DSTV Pay TV service.
However, in the last 5 years following the campaign to switch from analogue to digital TV, more pay TV providers have entered the Ugandan market. Star times, Azam, Zuku, Simba TV are all competing for a market size of about 38 million Ugandans. This has forced Multichoice to defend its position as the first and premium provider of pay TV services in Uganda.
DSTV Uganda isn’t short of packages for everyone. The Pay TV provider has 5 packages that include DSTV Access with 45+ channels, DSTV Family with over 60 channels, DSTV Compact with 80+ and Premium with 115+ channels. Now DSTV at the beginning of the year increased on its bouquet prices following the rise of the dollar against the Ugandan Shilling. The dollar has kept on rising since the beginning of the year, therefore the final price of bouquets in Ugandan Shillings might keep varying according to variation in exchange rates. DSTV gets more interesting as you pay more. It’s lower tier package DSTV Access isn’t exciting at all for those heavy entertainment consumers. It’s a mixture of local Free-to-air channels, international news channels and Kids channels sporting channels like BBC World news, Al Jazeera, CCTV news, Nat Geo Wild, M-Net Movies zone, Telemundo, E! Entertainment, Nickelodeon, Jim Jam. It’s more for a busy Dad/Mum and some kids at home.
