DStv Kenya says it is the undisputed home of movies, local shows, sports, international and local news and safe kids’ entertainment, and looking at its package offerings to subscribers, you will agree that is pure truth!

The MultiChoice-Owned satellite television is best known for airing live sports, especially those of the world’s most popular football leagues like the Premier League, Germany’s “Federal League” Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga and competitive tournaments UEFA Champions League, Europa League, the FA Cup and more.

But it is not guaranteed that when you get a DStv decoder in Kenya, you will watch live sports because it all depends on the subscription tier which you will buy. DStv currently offers five packages: Lite, Access, Family, Compact, Compact Plus and Premium, and their prices have risen recently.

Which is the cheapest DStv package in Kenya right now?

Of the five DStv Packages in Kenya, Lite is the cheapest, going for Ksh700 per month. It raised from Ksh650 after a price review a month ago.

“We would like to inform you that MultiChoice will be adjusting some of its DStv subscription prices effective 1st April 2024,” a notice sent to DStv subscribers informing them of the hikes read without openly disclosing the reason.

As the cheapest package, Lite is its basic plan, and it comes with 51 channels for the best in news, sports, movies and TV shows:

Does DStv Lite show live football?

Yes. However, you cannot watch live football games from top leagues like EPL and Bundesliga because it only has two sports channels: SuperSport Blitz for the latest sports news, broadcast details, score updates and results, and SuperSport Variety 4, which mainly broadcasts South African National League called DStv Premiership, Nedbank Cup and Women’s Super League, among others.

The other packages show more games, but they are more expensive too. Access costs Ksh1,300 monthly, Family is Ksh2,000 per month, Compact is Ksh3,700, Compact Plus Ksh6,500 and Premium, the most costliest DStv subscription plan in Kenya, costs Ksh10,500/month after the price update for 2024.
