Forgetting the reasons for this, I fully support leaving DSTV, they are no longer relevant to customers needs, only to their own which has resulted in an expensive and poor offering.
Jip and remember the repeats

yawn - you asked for one example and you got it for only R150 a month, dont be such a twat. I don't know every sports event they broadcast, they may or may not cover every sport you mentioned and they may have others. Bottom line they can offer a similar service to DSTV for R150.00 a month.
No, they can't. The point was that DStv offers all the sport in one place whereas in other countries you need several subscriptions to different services.

And fyi, i dropped DStv years ago, I have no love for them but they do offer the best sports package for the price that I have come across.

"invest in an Android TV box"

Some company should jump in here and offer a Hofmeyr branded TV box :p

I agree that Supersports offers a large sports bouquet but at R150 with 12 dedicated sports channels that other service isn't far off - so yeah maybe they don't have xyz sport but they have enough of the premium sports and other things that you go wtf are they playing but anyhow going around in circles. So yeah DSTV do have a good sports package can't deny that, but they over charging.

I agree with you there. They should offer separate packages for different people, a movie package, a sport package, an entertainment package etc, but they can't afford to because the price they pay for sport they can't afford to lose the people who only want movies or whatever so they end up subsidising the sport also.

Does he need proof that it was recently cancelled?

Would he pay a black man R20k for also driving over his decoder and dish, if the guy said he was a fan? Asking for a friend.

You're hoping the answer is NO?

Actually they are still gaining subs over all, on the account of majority of downgrading to lower tier packages and new lower LSM customers
Dstv Compact is now R400. They are losing subscribers in the higher income bracket.

I don't even care about this Steve Hofmyer thing. I just want DSTV to be dragged by Netflix.

The guy drove over kit that he paid for and is actually worth something. Idiotic beyond words! Too bad he didn't fall off his roof and break his neck in the process of showing his immature defiance.
Its more of a symbolic gesture than anything else like than dude that set his Merc on fire in front of head office.

Hofmeyr has become something of a non event so why still go after him?
