There go all future Netflix vs DSTV comparisons. Which is probably a good idea as any discussion of internet access fees is moot.

I am trying to be positive and enjoy this day of streaming-only option - I remember 1974 when SA had no TV only Springbok Radio
In that case you will use the Streama:It still requires a dish? Thought the new Explora Decoder would be able to run "everything" from an internet connection only? It doesn't make sense.
That's a rhetorical question, right?So how does Sky give the thing away while DSTV charge more than a car cost in 1980.?
But you still pay the same month after month?The Explora can do both, and the Streama can only do streaming.
DStv is also 'giving it away' with a contract, just like Sky.So for £20 installation I get a Sky Q 1TB UHD box installed (no cost for the box on a 18 month sub), it includes every streaming app available in the UK and extends the wireless network in home...
for another £25 a month I've got a basic Sky package that also includes a Netflix subscription, recording and multiple viewing environments (non of the "extra" viewing fees)
Sky has 12.5m subscribers, both DSTV and Sky have similar content costs and both distribute to satellite from the UK (caveat DSTV only for their international channels).
So how does Sky give the thing away while DSTV charge more than a car cost in 1980.? (VW Golf that is...)
