The only reason that I'm remotely interested in DSTV is coverage of the major sports events on SuperSports but at R600 per month I can easily do without it. So I see that Nokia has got a DVB-H headset that would be capable of receiving this signal on my N8:
Now the Nokia N8 has got an HDMI output that pumps out a very nice HD signal to a TV. Theoretically, then, it would be possible to use this setup to watch Supersport (and a few other garbage channels) on a big screen TV (albeit at 320x240) for 36 bucks a month. If the quality is passable and the signal ok then I would definitely not mind paying R36 per month for that.
The take-up of the service is expected to be low initially, but Rayner explains that they have a very long term view with this service and that they will not be concerned if they don’t reach 100,000 subscribers in the first year.
