Pep has confirmed that it will soon start selling Top TV pre-paid vouchers as part of it its financial services offering.
This is after the retailer announced that it would be dropping Top TV’s decoders from its stores.
“Pep has been selling Top TV decoders for the past two years. More than 75,000 decoders have been sold during this time,” a spokesperson for Pep said.
“Due to commercial reasons a business decision has been made to stop selling Top TV decoders from 1 October 2012 due to space constraints and the introduction of other exciting products into stores.”
It is understood that the pre-paid vouchers are aimed at making it easier for subscribers to pay their monthly Top TV bills.
The satellite pay-TV operator did not answer questions regarding its planned pre-paid offering by the time of publication, but it is believed that the vouchers will let subscribers watch Top TV on a month-to-month basis.
To fall within the provisions of Consumer Protection Act, the vouchers are said to be valid for three years from the date of purchase, and last 30 days once activated.
