So the streaming package is the same same price as the satellite package. I guess that the only benefit is not paying the once off decoder and installation cost and the monthly 'access fee' for 2/3 decoders and PVR usage.

For the streaming and decoder the 24 month contract works out to R829 so R10 more? I mean this doesn't really make sense.

819 x 12 = R9 828 :: dstv
139 x 12 = R1 668 :: netflix

I think there's ample information as to why people cancel DSTV, taking their R820 towards an uncapped fibre connection and a Netflix/etc sub.

With this info available, why even consider charging the same for a streaming only DStv service?

So basically the same price as getting the dish version which comes with streaming?
Or are they now discontinuing streaming access from dish subs?

[edit] i see its R240/mo more for the combo option... streaming only still a big rip.

Soon we'll get jamie dstv apologist articles.

Maybe blame the cost of HBO, Showtime and sports rights.

I'm no lover of DStv but there are reasons that Netflix doesn't have that content.
