Association of Telephone, Cable TV and Internet Subscribers has rejected the proposed hike in monthly subscription for MultiChoice pay television channels.
The group, in a letter to MultiChoice Nigeria, expressed displeasure at the plan to increase monthly DStv/GOtv tariff in Nigeria starting from June 1, 2020.
The letter signed by the National President, ATCIS, Adesina Bilesanmi, and the Secretary, Board of Trustees, Mrs. Loris Anger, read in part, “We write on behalf of Board of Trustees, Elders’ Forum, executives and entire members with over 185mn subscribers drawn from the six geopolitical zones.
“The above-named association wishes to notify you that we say no to increase in monthly tariff of DStv/GOtv in Nigeria during COVID-19. We are the masses’ advocates and fight for positive change for the interest of the subscribers.”
The association said it was wrong to introduce a new tariff based on the new Value Added Tax of 7.5 per cent from five per cent.
According to the group, five per cent VAT has already been included in the previous tariff plan and the tariff increment should only be based on the additional 2.5 per cent.
