DsTv Padi Package Price in Nigeria & List of Channels

Multichoice Africa announce the addition of 3 new bouquet a little bit over 6 months ago and DsTv Padi was the cheapest of those subscriptions and here is its list of channels and price in 2020.

dstv padi

In Mid-December 2019, the Pay Tv giant gave all active subscribers free access to their new bouquets for a month as test run for its loyal customers and so they can receive feedback about the new services.

By Mid-January 2020, there has been a confusion among their subsribers as to whether to subscribe to the new bouquet or stick to the previous ones.

It was then confusion that prompted me to update my earlier write ups to include comparison with the package above and below the new ones to allow making of choice much easier.

But right now in Mid June 2020, the satellite Tv gaint has deprecate the Family and Access package to allow room for the new ones.

Meaning instead of the 5 packages that was available before December 2019 and 8 bouquet that was available between then till June 2020, we now have only 6 packages to choose from.

Padi is now the cheapest of them all and in this post is all the information you might need about it. I will also compare it with the Yanga package using the stations and price since it is the plan directly above it.

The stations below are what you will be watching when you pay for Padi package.

    Is not justified at all reason since I know dstv zeeworld always be among the channels of least pay but why removing it from dstv padi…..pls look into it because puting it we encourage your customers to be recharging every month. Thanks.

  2. The price is NOT justifiable, this is stealing by trick, what happened to SS3 and zee world, it is not wrong to be part of the channels in the padi. So many useless channels in the package.

  3. So many useless channels in d padi package. This is pure stealing from people even thou you’re well aware of the nation wide pandemic.

    The greatest mistake I ever made is to get DSTV in the first instance. I regret that singular action.
