Dstv, are these price reductions good enough?

This is the meanest company in Africa. They have almost 500,000 active premiere subscribers in Kenya alone. Do the maths. They can even do a 30% price reduction and still be doing very well.

Change is coming. Home fibre is spreading to the estates. For half that amount, people have internet 3000 a month and 1000 for Netflix. Watakauka very soon.

  1. Are you sure of the 500,000 subscribers? i think they are less. Consider a population of 40m, that would mean 1 in 80 has DSTV. In Nairobi (which I assume has the hidgest concentration) I think it is like 1 in 500 going by the number of dishes i see in my estate. I would put it at at most 50,000 subscribers.
  2. DSTV also pays other parties. Can we find out how much before we accuse them of greed?
All said and done, there is room for reduction. Lets see how affordable internet will tilt the market.

walikuwa wakijifanya kuongezea bei kila wakati. subscribers like me are telling them to keep their channels which are always repeating programs anyway. with safaricom home internet, there are unlimited possibilities and they are going to lose more and more customers
