Mabutho did not fail to outline some of the company’s relief packages for Nigerians during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic which included cash donations of N200 million and N50 million to the Federal Government and Lagos State Government, a cash donation of N400 million to the Nigerian creative industry owing to the fact that some of its professionals experienced disruptions in productions due to the pandemic.
MultiChoice also donated 30,000 Personal Protective Equipment and 30,000 face masks to hospitals and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in Nigeria, and also approved an inventory worth more than N550 million which highlighted NCDC’s COVID-19 helplines and PSA materials on over 10 channels on DStv and GOtv.
‘In addition to the discount we are currently running our DStv Step Up offer which gives our customers on lower packages an opportunity to experience programming on higher packages, and a GOtv Max offer which sees customers on Jolli and Jinja enjoy a special discount of N2,999 instead of N3,600 per month.’
MultiChoice’s discount will be available for a limited time.
