Rise of GOtv subscription rate in Malawi

The Malawian government has introduced a 10 per cent tax on television subscription which has created a rise of the subscription rate.

The new prices are as follow: GOtv plus went from MWK 6900 to MWK7590, GOtv value from 3700 to MWK4070 while the Lite package was at MWK1300 and went to MWK1430.

MultiChoice has openly designated the government responsible for the higher price. It is not the first-time prices have been adjusted. With the DTT migration, the company has offered the possibility to switch from analogue to a digital system.
