With just two weeks to the Digital Migration MultiChoice the continents leading pay television provider has launched an unprecedented digital offer of only 99,900 Shillings for a full DStv kit which includes a decoder, a dish and one month subscription on the Access bouquet.

The price special which is the cheapest ever in Uganda’s history for a direct to home DTH satellite product represents a reduction of over 65% from the normal retail price.

Making the announcement at a press conference held at their offices Charles Hamya the General Manager of MultiChoice Uganda said this is an incredible once in a lifetime price which will only be available for three weeks.

“The digital migration is a major global milestone which will positively transform the broadcasting and ICT sector. MultiChoice as a company fully intends to play its part in helping the country migrate by making it as affordable as possible for Ugandans to move to full digital broadcasting”.

He noted that MultiChoice Africa their parent company stopped analogue broadcasting more than ten years ago and was glad to see they had taken the right decision.

Informing Ugandans where the specially priced DStv kits will be sold Bryan Muwonge the Marketing Manager of DStv said the kits shall be available at all MultiChoice retail and agent outlets countrywide he noted.

“because of the technology it uses (Satellite Direct to home) DStv is the only pay television product that can be viewed in any part of the country as such we have made sure Ugandans will be able to buy DStv in whatever town or urban center they live”.

He continued by, encouraging Ugandans to embrace the migration which he said “will be beneficial for the television industry as a whole because it would promote quality digital services and create a variety of business and  employment opportunities across the television value chain”.

He however cautioned Ugandans who believe the migration deadline will be extended not to do so because the UCC has repeatedly announced they are ready to switch off and that the migration is a part global agreement that requires Uganda to abide by that date.
