All 24h news channels... And due to the Corona outbreak.

Not really interested, I highly doubt anyone with an internet subscription would even bother. Can get the information from better sources.

  • BBC World
  • CNN
  • eNCA
  • SABC News
  • Newzroom Afrika
  • Euronews Now

Al Jazeera is free on YouTube, so is Sky News and a couple other channels. What Happened to ETVs other news channel BTW?

Must commend them for something free. Nice to have news channels outside of Youtube - it will be interesting to see how long this will last.

Probably till the outbreak is over although in my opinion news should be free irrespective of platform

Bit the bullet and added Disney+ to our Hulu sub for the kids so that's hopefully one less effing board game I'll have to play.

If Telkom decides to throttle me during this least festive of season I'll be less than impressed.

Hehe well the quality isn't great either. If DStv is wanting to make DSTV Now a competitive option they need to step up their game especially since first impressions last.

on my end it has been decent - hardly use it that much but with how things are turning out - could be my lucky month

for starters, this is good. What would be better is to open FreeToAir channels here (Ads. riddled to pay for this anyway).

Then make Premier League (SS3) free ;-)

I registered.

So they are basically giving away for free what nobody wants. Or very very few.

ENCA is live streaming on Youtube, provided you're not streaming from South Africa. It's blocked if you try.
