DStv has repaced their Access and Family Plan with Yanga and Confam packages and I will like to use this opportunity to share more info about the switch and as well discuss about DStv subscription price increments caused by the new 7.5% tax increments by the Nigerian Federal Government. I will also be comparing old and new DStv subscription plans and prices below. So take a seat belt while we ride together.
The popular digital pay cable TV provider multichoice (DStv) recently introduced new channel packages known as DStv Yanga and DStv Confam to replace their old DStv Access and DStv Family. This simply means that those subscribed to DStv Acess or Family can no longer be able to watch their favorite channels but can only do so by migrating to the new plan.
The introduction of the new package (DStv Yanga and DStv Confam) might not be new to some of you but we need to find out the channels available in each package and the subscription prices. The bottom line is that DStv introduced the plans to replace their old DStv Acess and Family package.
Confirming the introduction and replacement of DStv Access and Family they wrote on their main websites:

The South African owned digital cable TV provider (DStv) also did the same thing with their GOtv. In December 2019 they introduced GOtv Jolli and GOtv Jinja
only to replace their most popular plan GOtv Plus and the switch happened in June 2020.
However, the introduction of DStv Yanga and Confam is officially designed to replace the old DStv Acess and Family package. The reason behind replacement is best known to them, whether its to make more money or to add more value, I don't know but in the case of replacing GOtv Plus with Jinja and Jolli, it seems they are after more money than adding value because GOtv plus is the most preferable plan that offers more value for less. All the people I Know that use GOtv is always on GOtv Plus but the plan has now be suspended.
Subscription Prices for DStv Yanga & Confam Package plan
DStv set their Yanga package at 2,500
monthly while the Confam plan goes for 4,500
monthly. Moreover, DStv increased their channel subscription packages following the finance bill by the Nigeria Federal Government which approved an increase in the Value Added Tax (VAT) rate
applicable to the supply of goods and services in Nigeria, from 5% to 7.5% which took effect on February 1, 2020. MultiChoice Nigeria’s products and services are subject to VAT and on 1 June 2020, they have adjusted their DStv and GOtv prices to accommodate the 2.5% VAT increment, as per legislation.
