According to the usually reliable source, the upward price adjustment, likely to be effected soon, will affect the five DStv bouquets.

The expected price regime, sources further disclosed, could see the rate for DStv Compact rise to N6, 800 from N6, 300. Subscribers on the two lowest packages, Family and Access, who currently pay N3, 800 and N1, 900 respectively, may start paying N4, 000 and N2000.
