The market will tell you exactly how wrong you are on this.
Wrong on what? They offering pure digital access to an existing product. They're not designing something new to compete with Netflix. If anything this is the only move they can make.

So you can either pay for a satellite service which comes with streaming... or streaming on its own, with lower resolution of course... and still pay the same amount?

Good luck.

Which you got with the satellite service. You're paying the same, for less.

What's the difference between the old DTSV Now and the new streaming service?

My bad. Thought this was being given to all existing clients. Forgot they already had a digital service.

Good luck competing against Netflix. The market will tell you exactly how wrong you are on this.
How so? This isn't aimed at competing against Netflix. It's still a completely different product which Netflix doesn't offer.

DSTV's marketing spend must be through the roof this month, 4 articles in a row.
Just wait until Huawei season kicks off :ROFL:

Just 7 articles in this already

Hahahahaah, julle is f&^n mal !

So basically your options here are ( if you are so inclined to even consider this nonsense ) :

1. DeeEsTeeVee with a dish = +- 1K/pm ( excluding the hardware and installation mind you )
2. DeeEsTeeVee over uncapped Fibre ( recommended ) , but here is the catch - you still need to pay for your Fibre - so add another +-1K. So 2K in total to have DSTV over the WWW.

....Yeah, hmmmmm, let me think for a second, yes option 2 makes TOTAL sense doesn't it (not!). :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

So WHAT are you actually selling the public DSTV ? The same service as per the dish and decoder, but the user still needs to fork out for the bandwidth to consume your service.

PS: Even with their reported Uncapped offering that is yet to launch with this clever idea of theirs, i cannot see them giving that bandwidth to you for free - you will pay a premium for the privilege ( no pun intended )

Pffffttttttt

You forget option 1 also comes with #2 (literally and figuratively) included.

Well, not really - they say when you sign up ( new user ) - you can PICK your delivery method ( Streaming or physical dish ) - doubt you will get BOTH.
