✅ How to Continue Paying Old Rates

MULTICHOICE is also making it easier for its subscribers to pay their subscription fees cheaper. Here’s the catch and it’s worth exploring if you don’t want to pay the new subscription rates.

Subscribe before April 1st, 2022 and pay the old subscription rate. You can even upgrade your subscription and still pay old fees. And if you resubscribe before the end of your monthly subscription you will still pay the old bill.

This offer is valid as long as you don’t let your subscription expire, and it’s possible for the next 12 months.

Another way to pay the old rates is by subscribing for multiple months. And if you subscribe for 10 months you will get the 11th and 12th months for free. That includes paying the old rates.

But this offer is only valid if you subscribe before April 1st. This is not April fool offer, as long as you do this in the month of march 2022.
