They even cut the History Channel because they were going to air a program on DSTV itself.

DStv cuts affordable package with KykNET
Dit is vir my verstommend dat dat Multichoice hul net eenvoudig afvee aan diegene wat hul werklik onderhou. Engels het die ideale beskrywing van hierdie aksie, tw. Multichoice you are biting the hand that feeds you. Dit gaan dalk help om hierdie onwetlike monopolie tot ’n val bring. Die hele aksie van die verwydering van DStv Select en verskuiwing na DStv Compact Plus is :
  • Die verwydering van KykNet wat tans een van die nees populêre kanale is, juis omdat dit Afrikaans is.
  • ’n Geldmaak storie. ’n Verhoging van 95.8%
  • ’n Blatante rassistiese ideologie
  • Duidelik Anti-Afrikaans
# Multichoice must fall

Yup, when my granny had to stayed with us for a month or so a few years back , I downloaded her serials off YouTube for her. My uncle used to subscribe to Yup TV before Telkom canceled his ADSL line. BTW Yup TV plus a vpn is a cheaper alternative to watching the IPL than DSTV premium

I had select a couple of years ago aswell... Was a very nice package with Nickelodeon, Kyknet and various other good channels....
Then DSTV started cutting the channels one by one and not replacing it with the channels that replaced the channels on other packages.... That is why I decided to deactivate my DSTV, bought openview and a bigger internet package. Now I download what I want to watch and watch it when I want to.
They know that Afrikaans sells and with Kyknet on a cheap package, they lose subscribers to the premium package.
I just dont think, most of the remaining Select customers will switch to premium... They will rather just go with the family package or cancel altogether.
