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.
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.
