We either tend to work our ways around them or dance to their tunes. Seriously, any promotional offer from multichoice is always welcome. Hence, this post on DStv/GOtv Mega Promo is one thing you don’t want to miss. I shall be dedicating this post to any ongoing promo on DStv and Gotv. This article will be regularly updated based on the changes in the promotional offers available.

Showmax and MTN Nigeria Bring Special Cheaper Data Plans to Stream Showmax Contents
Showmax is an internet TV service(IPTV) owned partly or wholly by multichoice. they are available for all audiences in sub-Saharan Africa and they operate similarly to Netflix. unlike Netflix, you can get live sports on showmax. It seems showmax also owns their own official IPTV box.
To make life easier for showmax subscribers in Nigeria, showmax has partnered with MTN Nigeria. The partnership is promising as it affords subscribers the ability to be a able to get special and relatively cheaper data for showmax contents..

Massive Price Slash On DStv Nigeria and GOtv Entry Level Decoders
Most of you have witnessed a series of discounts on the DStv Explora. Some of these ran as a standalone offer while at other times, it ran concurrently with other decoder discount offers.
However, this latest price slash will see the DStv Zappa HD decoder, dish kit plus Compact package subscription drop from N18,600 to N9,900. Similarly, GOtv decoder, GOtennae with GOtv Jolli package subscription will go from N8,400 to N6,900. See images below:
Speaking at a virtual media briefing held on Friday, 29 January, Chief Customer Officer, MultiChoice Nigeria, Martin Mabutho, explained that the price slash is part of MultiChoice’s commitment to making quality entertainment more accessible to Nigerians.
“With this discount, it simply means the barrier customers encounter in purchasing the starter kit of DStv or GOtv decoders have been removed.
This promotional offer(that is the discounted DStv and GOtv bundle offer) will be available all through February 2021 only.
The above information was 100% valid and correct at the time of posting. However, the ultimate power and discretion lie with multichoice who can change, stop, extend, or modify at will. Finally, to the best of my knowledge, this is only applicable to their Nigerian subscribers. I believe they will have a similar or a better package for their subscribers outside Nigeria.
