DStv Kenya packages

The pay TV market in Kenya has and still is dominated by Multichoice, the company behind DStv Kenya packages. The brand owned by MultiChoice Kenya has been operating in Kenya for years and has established its name as the go to provider for premium content including Live sports. If you are a fan of any sport, you most probably already know about DStv if you don’t muse it already.

Over the years, DStv Kenya has seen so many changes in the different packages it offers in Kenya. The company has still maintained a good selection of channels and packages but what most people complain about are its price. Most people are of the opinion that DStv is charging way too much for its premium package that comes with most of the Live sports action you may want.

In this post, we will look at the updated DStv Kenya packages, channels and prices as of August 2023. These may change and we will try our best to update you on that if any changes are announced.
