DSTV Nigeria Packages, Channels and Price

DSTV is now a watchword in Nigeria as far as digital satellite television is concerned. They have really targeted the market in that there are several packages and products one can choose from. One can either opt for Easy View, Family, Compact, DSTV Compact Plus and/or Premium packages. Adding to these packages is the DSTV Mobile which has been in existence and has really driven the market wild. With the use of DSTV Drifta, you can even watch DSTV with your wi-fi devices like laptop, iPad, Tablets, Smart Phones etc. You can also check DSTV Account balance online

So today, we will be discussing the DSTV packages with their corresponding channels, and what it takes to subscribe to it. For instance, if you opt for the Family Package of DSTV, what exactly are you expecting to watch? How much will you pay for the package.


  1. DSTV ACCESS OR EASY VIEW: The Dstv access or the easy view is the least subscription package in terms of price and the channels. It tries to match a bit of news, entertainment, sports, leisure etc into its channels. Though, if you are looking for a channel to watch English Premier League, DSTV Compact Plus is highly recommended. The below are the channels found in DSTV Access or Easy View
  • Magic World
  • Africa Magic Hausa
  • Africa Magic Yoruba
  • E Entertainment
  • Fashion TV
  • EuroSport News
  • AIT
  • NTA International

The current price to subscribe for DSTV Access is still constant. It is done for N1500.

2. DSTV FAMILY PACKAGE: DSTV Family is like the most subscribed package in Nigeria. It is the package that gives Nigerian the ability to watch African Magic, Sport Highlights, African Sport, etc. In addition to the channels in the DSTV Access, DSTV Family package includes the following channels

It has more than 46 digital channels in addition to the audio channels it has. It’s current subscription price is N3000. So affordable for every household to subscribe.

3. DSTV COMPACT AND COMPACT PLUS: The DSTV Compact and Compact Plus is one of the best packages DSTV has to offer. Compact Plus has a wider range of channels ranging form Super Sport 7 and 10 that show LIVE Premiership games. If you are a sport lover, I will prompt you to go for the Compact Plus subscription because you will have the ability to watch 95% of English premier league, some La Liga Games and the Italian Serie A. It is not sport channels that Dstv Compact is known for, it is known for a wider range of channels like

  • MNET Series
  • MNET Action
  • Universal Channel (formally Hallmark channel)
  • Africa Magic
  • Africa Magic Hausa

  • Silverbird TV
  • Islam Channel
  • Sony Entertainment
  • and others
The Compact Package cost N5,000 while the Compact Plus is subscribed for N7,500.
4. DSTV PREMIUM PACKAGE: The DSTV Premium package is for the customer who need the best. It has more that 90 channels that covers series of sport, entertainment, movies, music etc. The Premiership lovers can watch 100% Live game here. Those that like HD Channels can watch it in this subscription. The channels  unlock premium channels like SS3N, SS5N Movie Magic 1, 2 etc.
The Premium package cost N10,000.
DSTV is such a beauty that can help man in terms of relaxation, entertainment etc. It is better to get well-informed on their products and Naijatips is really trying to bring the knowledge of DSTV to the public.

  25. There is need for flexibility to allow subscribers to change from package any time desired at the comfort of the home, the web.
    At the end of subscription, there should be an automatic request for type of package as against fixing the package.
