Recently revamped in July 2021, DStv Business launched new value packages packed with genre-specific content that serves businesses and their patrons and connects commercial establishments to profits prompting increased uptake of the commercial packages over the past 12 months.
In a message to customers, the company acknowledged that their Kenyan businesses remain under extreme pressure, and the marginal increase is only due to inflation across the African continent.
Despite the increase, DStv still promises to offer the most competitive pay-TV and great value while making these adjustments.
DStv Business customers can expect new channels, including Movie Room, Smart 24 TV and News Central, to further bolster the work and stay packages by offering more news and movies.
DStv Business also announced a recent improvement to the experience for its Work, Play and Stay customers with the addition of XtraView, which allows establishments to have three DStv decoders with the same number of channels at the cost of just a single monthly subscription.
Customers will only be required to pay the Xtraview access fee.
All three decoders can be operated independently to offer customers the maximum amount of choice, no matter what their tastes are.
DStv Business will also launch an online self-service portal later in the year for its customers to deliver a better customer experience where customers can pay and manage their DStv business accounts on the DStv website instead of having to go to a branch or calling the call centre.
