40

It is no longer a news that Multichoice now have new set of packages added to the existing ones and the highest among the newly introduced is the DsTv confam bouquet whose channels, price and comparison with others will be discussed in this post.

dstv confam

In Mid-December of 2019, it was added alongside the likes of Padi and Yanga to make the number of available packages up to 8.

But this left the subscribers confused as most kept asking which to subscribe to.

I had to compare each of the new packages with the ones directly above and below them to make choosing easier for the subscribers.

But earlier this month; June 2020, two out of the old packages which also happen to be the cheapest were removed from the list.

Removal of Access and Family bouquet left us with 6 packages to choose from. But then it makes things less complicated for subscribers.

The rest of this write up contain everything you need to know about Confam which include the list of current stations and the total number. Since we have seen those changed too couple of times over the past 6 months.

Rest assured that i will keep it updated and fresh once there are new changes immediately i became aware of them.

The channels below are what you will enjoy when you subscribe to the confam plan.

Price of Confam Subscription in Nigeria

For 4615 Naira per month, Confam package gives you access to 124 DsTv stations out of which 11 are Radio / Audio.

How to Pay for Confam Bouquet

The best way for you to renew confam subscription is using quickteller.com/dstv to make payment. Other ways of making payment are mobile app of your bank, online banking and ATM.

Compact Vs Confam Vs Yanga

Even though this is not an entirely fair comparison considering their price differences but i think you guys will still want to know this before you go ahead and select.

There is only 1 channel you will enjoy when you are on Confam over Compact and that station is Maisha Magic East HD |158|.

But on the other hand, there are whole lot of stations you will be enjoying if you decides to pay 3,285 Naira more for compact.

Africa Magic Urban |153|, BBC Brit |120|, Lifetime Entertainment |131|, MTV |130|, VUZU |116|, ROK |168|, Studio Universal HD |112|, Discovery ID HD |171|, Discovery TLC Entertainment HD |135|, National Geographic Channel |181|, SuperSport Premier League |203|, SuperSport Variety 2 |207|, Sky News |402|, Disney Channel |303|, Disney Channel XD |304|, NickJr |307|, NickTOONS |308|, Maisha Magic Plus HD |163|, Trace Muzika |334|, TRACE Mziki |323| and a lot of the audio channels.

However, if you trying to choose between Confam and Yanga, here is the breakdown.

Confam has the following stations which are not available for dstv Yanga subscribers.

BET |129|, CBS Reality |132|, FOX |125|, M-Net City |115|, Universal TV |117|, EVA |141|, Star Life |167|, TNT Africa |137|, BBC Lifestyle |174|, Food Network |175|, SuperSport La Liga |204|, SuperSport Variety 3 |208|, SuperSport Variety 4 |209|, ESPN |218|, CNN International |401|, Boomerang |302|, Cartoon Network |301|, Cbeebies |306|, Da Vinci Learning |318|, Trace Gospel |332|.

There is or are no station on Yanga that you won’t also enjoy when you subscribe to confam (scroll up for a complete table of stations on this package).

Remember that you will be paying 2050 Naira to move to Confam from Yanga.

Final Note

Subscribing to confam gives you the choice to choose from over 124 stations which cut across entertainment, sports, music, documentary, religion and many more.

Confam replaced the old family package though it is a bit more expensive than it and also come with more stations. If you ask me it’s worth the additional fee you are paying.

There are more than enough music channels, entertainment and News channels to switch from and to, which will keep you entertained and updated on global events when you are less busy.

Between dstv confam and family, which of the bouquet do you like? Do you think they are just for removing Family or do you think they should have left it? Let me know in the comment box.

  1. Bisi Frank, may God bless you as you did find it worthy to do this comprehensive analysis of this present offer from DsTV.
    DsTV is always on the quest to manipulate Nigerian subscribers with worthless and senseless offers.

  2. Thanks for the write up. This package is a NO NO NO for me. It should be discontinued or preferably add SS 3(223), 110, 151 & 168.

    • This package is so useless ..please I believe you guys are more than such ..what will I be doing with all those channels ..no sports 3 , no TLC , no ROK at least ..its a big No No…

    • Well, I just did mine today with d option of upgrading me to compact after 48hrs but I don’t know how true is dat sha… but what I know is de know dey lie for person twice… I’m still waiting to know if it’s a scam … day 1 still counting

  3. You are right my brother
    In my own opinion I think multichoice should give we the viewers the privilege to choose what we wanna watch on our decoder and tell us how much the number of channels we might have chosen cost.
    They just put a lot of unnecessary channels on the decoder of which some I’ve never watched since I bought the decoder.

    • This is the first best response or suggestion I ever read from anybody here.
      To add to it, if multichoice is worried about sustainability of this idea, it should levy a base fee which comes with some basic channels and then allow people to add any seven channels of their choice and tell us how much that will cost. Nobody watches all the 122 or 140 channels they claim to provide.
      People will get it if it’s affordable.

      • Thanks so much for your analysis, it was helpful and honestly the difference in stations is actually negligible, the new stations on confam doesn’t move me to switch from my family jeje. Thanks once more

    • I can’t think the meaning of this upgrade. Most of us patronage because of sports channels. So if you deny us from these sports channels while paying this amount monthly is not in a right direction. Please come again.

  4. Complete waste of money. It SS3 was added, this would have made some sense for sports lovers.

    I agree with you, maybe we should have different packages for sports and entertainment. Or, allow people select the few stations they want and get billed for those stations.

    Over 70 useless stations of the available 120 for #4,500.

  5. What they would have simply done was to add some channels in compact that family bouquet subscribers don’t have. Eg, studio universal, ss3 for sports lovers, Africa magic urban, Disney (for kids) and either Sony max or mnet 1 or all stars. Then people will pay 4500 for the extra 5 watchable channels. Not channels no one watches.

  6. Whats the difference between this package and DSTV Family? I cant see any, i even thought more channels like SS3 would be added, i almost upgraded from family, but am not doing again.

  7. To all the Dstv customers that comments here.
    How can we fight against this multichoice scam? The subscription didn’t start this way and it get higher every year by taking us as a fool adding station and removing stations. If the subscription expired we can’t watch the Nigeria station for free.

  8. Wow…Thank God i googled this and stumbled on your post…Thanks alot for the analysis…I’m so not upgrading to Confam…like its a waste…I’ll just subscribe to family…Thanks alot

  9. I don’t wanna say anything because I am angry with who must have introduced this package DStv Confam to me, no sence and Joy in it. Pls DStv should allow us choose and subscribe our desire channels simple.

  10. Thanks for the review. It has helped me make my decision to just jejely stick to family bouquet. I agree with some other suggestions of allowing a Base fee and giving people the choice to add on what they desire to watch at an extra cost.

  11. i think multi choice should improve their service by allowing its subscribers to select the channels they prefare watching, and pay for it; instead of forcing senseless channels on us of which 90% of the subscribers have never opened since they bought the decoder.

    thanks

  12. This is a complete way of duping people of their money.

    If you know you want to make your subscribers happy and see value for the money paid for subscription then add both SS3 and SS5 to the already listed channels and remove some useless channels that no body knows they exist.

  13. It’s amazing that the Nigerian govt is clueless on the economic power to call DStv to order and destroy this Shylock monopoly. Every month, they keep shipping multi millions to SA, along with their sister companies like ShopRite, MTN etc, and the deaf and dumb Nigerian govt continue to fold its arms and want the economy to grow with so much capital flight?

    I dont understand why the govt cannot collaborate with a serious investor and float a rival satellite channel, then limit the freedom and fraud of DStv & Gotv until the new Nigerian company grows well. SMH.

  14. Absolute nonsense. A way of stealing from the masses. Who has ever watch 15 different channels before expiration date? Nobody has such time. Give us sport channels, music and three other Chanel of our choice and Bill us. Stop 🛑 this criminal attitude.

  15. Thanks for this eye-opener, I almost upgraded to confam, but after going through your analysis I decided to stick to my family.

  16. The only difference is Channel 198 which is for either Big Brother or Ultimate Love program which they know people are following without reasoning.

    Honestly there are better way to offer value added packages than this, also we don’t have any government agency checkmating DSTV service to customers in Nigeria or the agency is not working.

  17. This is a whole lot of mess. How dubious can Multichoice be? Why not give us the opportunity of making our own choices. Add TLC, SS3, Studio Universal, Africa Magic Urban, and any mnet channel, We will pay and not these unreasonable channels listed above. Thank you for your comparative analysis, I stick with my Family package.

  18. I paid for this packagè twice and i must say it is the most senseless subscription ever! It simply makes no sense. I totally agree with you its an unnecessary package, DSTV should be more reasonable with new packages….this package makes no sense. They should tailor innovations with customer requests, essence is to make people want to pay more and get value for money. Multichoice just keeps throwing shit at us… not their fault anyways, we got no option

  19. Seriously, we the customers need to be more involved in this processes instead of them forcing packages down our throats. Authorities needs to restrain corporations from extorting the populace in the manner they do with so much impunity. The world is facing a looming recession and all they can do is modify packages, take away the juice and force shaft on us. Corporations should be more responsibility by giving back in this pandemic era, instead of looking for ways to reap of on Nigerians.
    MultiChoice be warned!

  20. Open protest against multichoice is what we need now. We have prominent leaders who are shareholders in this company, and they continue to give DSTV the power to exploits us.

  21. Excluding Trace Gospel from Comfam is counter-productive. Most importantly, one should have the liberty to select and pay for the certain number of channels. Access fee like GSM networks charge will be OK, rather than cramped up a long list of channels that DStv know are never going to be viewed. Which Nigeria’s subscribers will be interested in Chinese speaking channels?!

  22. Thank God. I wanted to change my package to Confam. But now I may as well stop recharging for now. We should come together collectively against foreign domination and exploitation for the benefit of our future generations.
