Nigerian Senate To Probe Price Hike by DSTV

The Senate yesterday said it will investigate Multichoice Nigeria, a subsidiary of South African-based Multichoice Africa, owners of DSTV over alleged unwholesome practices, unreasonable subscription hikes across their various bouquets, which have led to growing public complaints and petitions.

Adopting a two-prayer motion moved by Senator Isah Misau (APC Bauchi Central) titled “Concern on Unwholesome Practices by Multichoice Nigeria,” (DSTV), the Senate directed the Committees on Information and Trade and Investment to investigate and consider summoning the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and the Consumer Protection Council (CPC).

The Senate also mandated the Committee on Information to organise a public hearing for all stakeholders including relevant civil societies to foster a way forward.
