    Sure it is expensive, but that is just the way it is currently. Why are they going to incur the extra inflation related expenses and not pass it on to us?
    I was also frothing at the mouth reading the thread title, but I have to say this is a perfectly valid point.

    What still grates my cheese though is the terrible software that runs on their decoder, I think you need a damn mainframe to run that smoothly, and the ethernet port in the physical device just isn't used by the software, it doesn't have any networking features/capability. Come one Multichoice, drop the african gravy train attitude and start innovating for a change, this is basics.

    NO PROBLEM!!! All the good little meek sheep will just hand over their cash like the spineless suckers they are!
    They didn't know how to say no back then, and they are too scared to say no now!
    They have no one to blame but themselves.

    haha, suckers.
    Glad I stopped that crap ages ago.
    Almost R600PM for premium? You gotta be f****ng kidding me.
    Inflation or not, the prices should at the very least stay the same, seeing as how Internet penetration is slowly but surely gaining ground. Adapt or die.

    I swear, South Africans are just as hung up on their DSTV subscriptions as they are about cars.
    They'll just keep paying and paying.

    +1. Me too. I once cancelled it from work, and by the time I got back home, it was reactivated. She phoned DSTV and somehow threatened them to reactivate it. LOL...

    I think it's time to try Top TV. We don't watch any sport.

    FFS! Here we go again.
    If only TopTV had live sports, Football, Cricket and Rugby. I would leave DTSV in a blink of an eye.

    How much is PVR, dual view and all the other stuff?
    So if I wanted the top of range DSTV, I'd be close on R700pm?

    With the increase, yes. Current subscription is around R660.

    Ouch... just got a Walka and signed up for DSTV mobile... was happy with R36... even an increase to R40/m... but gees MC... R50/m?

    That's a 38% hike... that's totally unreasonable! Might as well sell this Walka on Bid or Buy!

    Of course everyone will come onto this forum complaining about it BUT grudgingly pay their subs at the end of the month
    Do you get an inflation increase each year on your salary?
    Do the people working for MultiChoice not deserve the same right?
    Did electricity prices go up?

    There is a justification for price increases and it is called inflation...

    Can you really see any reason why they could afford not to increase their prices?

    I totally agree jmak, but 38% on one product offering?
