MultiChoice Uganda has slashed GOtv decoder prices.
The new price, a reduction from Ugx. 89,000 by 23% (Ugx 20,000), is intended to deliver value by making great entertainment more accessible for all Ugandans as the country takes the journey to economic recovery following the unprecedented times that affected purchasing power.
“The slow recovery rate of the country’s economy from the recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the recently concluded election period (that saw internet shutdown which has affected the flow of many businesses) has compelled us at MultiChoice Uganda to consider a price reduction in a bid to ease our customers’ burden and cushion them against financial distress,” Jonah Wegoye, the Head of Sales at MultiChoice Uganda, revealed while addressing the press.
Wegoye added that, “The new decoder offer will be inclusive of the full GOtv kit (decoder and antenna), one-month subscription of GOtv Plus and installation.”
Since the pandemic, there has been an increase in the consumption of media in the form of current affairs, entertainment, sports, movies among others and competitive pricing is one of the keys to unlocking accessibility.
Joan Semanda Kizza, the PR and Communications Manager at MultiChoice Uganda stated that, “MultiChoice remains dedicated to providing great family entertainment that entails non-stop family dramas, lifestyle shows, kids’ shows, edu-series, edutainment and lots of sporting action to amplify the viewing experience of our dear customers through our GOtv platform.”
“We know our customers will enjoy a variety of home entertainment content as we continue to hold onto our promise of defining home entertainment in Uganda,” Kizza added.
The new sales offer is valid for all active and non-active GOtv customers and will run for the period between 1st February, 2021 to 31st March, 2021.
