The new prices will start on Wednesday, May 1, 2024. Last year, the prices went up by about 19% to 20%, depending on which package you had, but now, they’re saying it’s going to be between 25% to 26% more expensive for everyone. People who use their services got an email on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, telling them about the new prices. The email explained that Multichoice is raising prices because it costs more for them to run their business now. They want to keep providing good entertainment and service, but they say they have to increase the prices to do that.
