Rising dollar against the Uganda Shilling must be to blame for the increase. DSTV Uganda which is under the same company at the beginning of the year hiked its subscription fees because of the rising dollar rate.

GoTV Standard (30 channels) — Ugx 20,000 from 18,000

GoTV Plus(41 channels) — Ugx 28,000 from 25,000
