Charges for services like the DSTV Xtraview and HD PVR access service have also gone up to UGX 46,000 ,a 4.5% increase(UGX 2,000 more).

As you must know, DSTV hasn’t recently added new content to their lineup. Most of their new movie originals and shows are available and are focused on Multichoice’s streaming platform Showmax. Apart from the most-in-demand content of live sports, there is little to no justification for the price increase.

To be quite honest, these price hikes could not have come at a worse time for everybody. The significant slowdown in global growth makes it harder for people to have enough disposable budget for entertainment.
