    Well, with a HTPC setup + 4MB internet (10 if lucky), one can stream 100s of channels using XBMC + SuperTV plugin. They would have to do alot (price and quality) to sway us over.

    Thinking of dropping DSTV and saving over R500, lounge is setup for streaming and works great .

    I would really love to see an ALL you Can Rent feature, a la NETFLiX .

    Multichoice, you've done it again. That could be the most useless Q&A I've ever read.

    Seriously, a lot of time would have been saved by just saying "It's a trial. More trial stuff. Trial Trial Trial. Thanks"

    actually answering the questions would have been an embarrassment for them, and it usually is.
    There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    The Online version of their Box Office service, which means there will be a bigger library of movies to choose from if it does become available.

    Pity MYBB doesn't have to pay for paper and ink, if that was the case we wouldn't have been subjected to the waste of a Q & A

    I still don't get why BoxOffice is only available to Premium subscribers. Why not make it available to any DSTV account holder?
    In South Africa even the information superhighway has potholes in it.

    Nah, you'rs is called Box Office on Demand+... you know, without any of the BS that Multichoice will attach to their stupid offering, and yours will be more current as well.

    Will you be keeping prices the same when the service comes out of beta?

    The full details of the offering will be announced at launch.

    How many of the registered users use the service monthly?

    Volumes are what we would expect from a small closed group of users. The registered users have been supportive in contributing to the feedback survey which is indicative of usage.

    Which movies are more popular: the slightly more expensive New Releases, or Classics?

    Tastes vary dramatically but we’ve found that both categories are appreciated in their own right.

    How many rentals do you see in a month?

    The numbers vary from one week to the next, but are what we would expect from a trial service.

    How much bandwidth do you use every month from just serving movies from DStv BoxOffice Online?

    The bandwidth usage is negligible, purely based on the small number of users we currently have signed up and the variance in weekly rentals.
    Ok, so they basically didn't answer any of your questions...?
