DSTV users will admit that one great thing about the pay-TV service is the flexibility of their plans. There is literally a plan for every budget.
DSTV offers a promo installation deal of just N13,900 which covers the satellite dish and its kit, an HD decoder, and a one-month subscription to the Compact package.
This price does not cover the actual installation and you may need to pay an additional installation fee (usually between N5000 to N10000), depending on the agent or company doing the installation.
