DStv Uganda subscribers have a reason to smile after a long wait. Starting 1st September 2019, DStv Uganda bouquet prices will be more affordable across the board. These price drops will affect Dstv Premium, DStv Compact Plus, DStv Compact and DStv Family subscribers. The prices for DStv Access will remain the same at UGX 33,000 for the second year running.
What you ought to know is that these price drops have been an annual affair for as far back as 2015. However, DStv broke with tradition in 2018 though by not announcing any price drops. Secondly, the launch date this year has changed from the customary 1st of November annually to 1st September.
Nevertheless, better late than never, as they say. Besides, DStv has made up for lost time in a big sort of way. Where before the price drops were in single digits (nothing above 10%), subscribers now have a better deal. Let’s break it down for you:
