Nigerians generally crave high-quality entertainment, and it reflects in the zest with which such content are sought after. They are particularly upbeat when such entertainment is available at an affordable price. The Nigerian entertainment industry is highly rated with its abundance of talents particularly in the music and movie sectors, complimented by a vibrant social media space that is abuzz round the clock commenting on entertainment and related issues. The last decade has witnessed an astronomical growth of the industry so much that the industry was one of the key sectors that contributed to the rebasing of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and it became Africa’s biggest economy.
However, the current economic situation that Nigerians are faced with has also affected the ability to afford the cost of quality goods and services, including those from the entertainment sub-sector. There is a silver lining though. Leading entertainment and Pay TV Company in Nigeria, Multi Choice Nigeria Limited, has introduced innovative ways to help subscribers to optimise their viewing pleasure. The company, in a bid to sustain the provision of quality premium content on its platform, has revamped its Compact bouquet so as to offer subscribers better value for money.
DStv compact is designed for young, cool and trendy subscribers who desire premium content, but cannot necessarily afford it. The bouquet has now been refreshed to include some premium channels, like: MNET Action, Studio Universal, among others. Compact subscribers can now experience the best football action in the world without negatively impacting on them financially.
Although the revamped Compact bouquet will come in handy during the over 400 Premier Le and La Liga games, all streamed live in glorious HD, it is by far more versatile than just football matches.
The all-new compact bouquet comes packed with over 95 world class channels, including access to its flagship on-demand video rental service – DStv Box Office. This service avails subscribers 15 new movies pre-loaded onto their decoders that enable them make a selection from, pay and proceed to enjoy the show on offer. It is as simple and straightforward as outlined. No longer will subscribers have to wait for new releases to be screened at cinemas, or many months for the movies to be released on DVDs. The DStv Box Office offers the same service as the cinema experience in the comfort of one’s home and personal convenience.
Speaking on the game-changing potential of the DStv Box Office, which is now available to compact bouquet subscribers, General Manager, MultiChoice, Martin Mabutho said: “DStv services like Box Office form part of a bigger MultiChoice strategy to use cutting-edge technological innovation to help people enjoy some of the best entertainment available at a time that’s convenient to them. This is our way of adding more value to our subscribers’ video entertainment experience, despite the current realities we are facing.” The service offers subscribers other benefits, including the luxury of enjoying a combination of all channels in Family and Access bouquets, as well as M-Net Family and VUZU channels, giving them more value for money. New and existing subscribers can enjoy all these exclusive content and non-stop television entertainment as never before at a modest monthly subscription of N6, 000. This range succinctly amplifies a fusion of both great value and affordability. The DSTV compact bouquet caters to the unique preferences of people in a family and ensures that no member of the family misses their favourite programmes.
