  • R699/month for DStv Premium compared to R839/month for satellite
  • R469/month for Compact Plus, compared to R549/month for Satellite
  • 369 R/month for Compact, compared to 429 R/month for Satellite

The price reductions are effective immediately. The move comes after MultiChoice was criticized for launching standalone, so-called “dishless” services last year at the same price as its satellite products.

At the same time, MultiChoice has announced that it will be introducing fiber optic broadband via its DStv Internet division from October 1st. So far, the internet service provider DStv has only offered 4G / LTE services on the fixed network. MultiChoice did not immediately provide details of its fiber offerings.

The company also said its DStv Streama streaming set-top box is finally ready to launch. The product, which has been in development for two years, has built-in WiFi, while the remote control has dedicated buttons for Netflix, Showmax and YouTube. The box supports 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos. – (c) 2022 NewsCentral Media
