Whether you want to watch live sports, reality shows, or the latest telenovela, MultiChoice offers a great selection of channels via their DStv satellite television service to suit everyone’s needs. However, Multichoice has announced price increases for its packages for 2022. From April 1, Premium subscribers will pay 1.21% or R10 more per month. There are similar adjustments for the following:

  • Family (+4.75% or R14)
  • Compact Plus (+1.86% or R10)
  • Compact (+4.89% or R20)
  • Access (+4.35% or R5)

Pricing for Showmax, BoxOffice, Add Movies, and Easyview will not be affected for 2022.

The company has factored in the challenges being encountered by South African consumers. They have tried their best to absorb as much of the increase in the cost of doing business to implement minimal adjustments.

Besides the new prices, customers will continue to receive reward offerings. These include access to specials, customer discounts, competitions, and benefits from Showmax, BoxOffice, and other related products and services.

5. Access

This is the second cheapest package, and even though it has fewer channels, there is still more to offer. With only R120 a month, there is more you can enjoy.

Dropped channels

The company has also dropped four e’s entertainment channels. Therefore, eMovies, eExtra, eToonz, and eMovies Extra will no longer be available on DStv from April 1, 2022. However, you can still enjoy these channels as they will still be available on OpenView. At the same time, subscription increases, so viewers will be paying more to lose four channels.

So, what are viewers getting in return for the loss? The Dreamworks kids channel on 304 and another movie channel slated for launching will be some of the added channels.
