Leading pay-TV platform, DSTV, has announced that subscribers on its Compact and Compact Plus bouquets will, from today, be able to watch the full complement of football matches from the world’s most prestigious leagues-the Barclays Premier League (EPL) and La Liga as well as the European Championship (Euro 2016).

The matches of these leagues and Euro 2016 will be available to DStv Compact subscribers in High Definition and at no extra cost. Previously, the full football package was available to only DStv Premium subscribers on its SuperSport channels.

Explaining why DStv is providing a full football menu for Compact subscribers, Mr. John Ugbe, Managing DIrector, MultiChoice Nigeria, said: “One of MultiChoice’s key priorities is to put our subscribers’ needs at the heart of everything we do and since these have been tough economic times for everyone, we realised that our subscribers could use some good news. We’re excited that we can now deliver the best football action in the world to our Compact subscribers, while ensuring that this development doesn’t negatively impact them financially.”

Ugbe also explained that Euro 2016 matches have been made available to Compact subscribers as part of MultiChoice Africa’s ongoing efforts to improve its products and offering.

Also, MultiChoice Nigeria announced a price slash on Explora and Zapper decoders bundled with the Compact bouquet. The Explora, dish kit with one month Compact subscription, initially sold at N71,000, has been reduced by more than 50% to N30,000; while the DStv Zapper decoder, dish kit plus one month Compact subscription will now be sold at N12,500 as against the previous price of N18,500.

The offer which is valid while stocks last further reiterates MultiChoice’s commitment to provide Nigerians with quality entertainment they can afford.

Football fans on Compact and Compact Plus can tune to two new channels: SuperSport 11 (DStv channel 231) and SuperSport 12 (DStv channel 232), which will be dedicated to the EPL and La Liga.

This means that all Compact subscribers will now have access to the biggest games of the season, including the blockbuster clash between Arsenal and Manchester United billed for 28 February. The match will be broadcast on SS11.

On 27 February, Compact subscribers can watch the Madrid derby featuring Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid and the next day watch Barcelona take on Sevilla.

The greatest club rivalry in the world will be available for viewing on SS12-the home of La Liga-on 3 April, when Barcelona’s dazzling trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez will meet Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo in the first El Clasico derby of 2016 at Barça’s Camp Nou.

Three days later, Valencia will take on Atletico Madrid.

Compact subscribers can also catch other exciting La Liga matches plus highlights, magazine programming, pre-match discussions and panel shows on SS12.

Last July, MultiChoice revamped its DStv Compact bouquet to include over 95 world class channels at a monthly subscription of N6,000. Some of the new channels include AfricaMagic Igbo, AfricaMagic Urban, BBC Brit, CBeebies, Eva, M-City and Zee World.

    pls dstv reduce this price to 5k for everybody. why play apartheid with prices just like the white only thing in south africa. i am tire of this your gist of reduction whereas you reduce nothing cos that is the normal price in your native country.

    I used to b a dstv subscriber, but I won’t rush to subscribe again, I ll rather wait and see how tins unfold. Greedy dstv was compelled by cpc, I see dem sounding as if they wanna b reasonable with their price on dia own volition. A won ole !

    This is commendable however i have trust issues when it comes to Multichoice Nigeria. This package will end up showing maybe 4 or 5 Barcelona & R.madrid matches in a season and only wednesday champions league games live. Then start showing you live matches of las palmas,zaragoza, deportivo and claim to show la liga games. Same for BPL, Arsenal, City, Chelsea games might only be showed 1ce a month while sunderland, west ham and co will be showed live regularly.
