Fox FX and Fox Entertainment, at least the "Africa" variants thereof, have been on TopTV from inception.Other channels that ODM plans to offer which it says are [highlight]brand new to the South African market[/highlight] are: StarSat Novella, StarSat Bollywood, StarSat Kung Fu, Fox FX, and a dedicated NBA channel.
Yes, easy navigating and aesthetically good too.
Definitely. As StarSat are doing, they intend to make their money back on the monthly content.R399 is cheap for HD compared to DSTV
Yup. Ridiculously cheap and incredibly illogical too.R399 is cheap, but it's hardly ridiculously cheap. R99 for the decoder would be ridiculously cheap.
I really don't remember how MonoChoice billed for DSTV (up-front or in arrears) since I cancelled DSTV several years ago with extreme prejudice after one too many annual price increases.Surely all pay tv is prepaid anyway? You pay in advance before you watch don't you?
Prepaid option will still be available but at the presence moment you will still have to purchase TopTV prepaid voucher at Pep/clicks etc. This time it works differently for example if you purchase the R279 voucher you will be charged per day example 30 day access = R6,44, roughly you will get 42 days access with the R279, something between the linesThe HD decoder does however sound like a good deal for R400 and I might well try Star Sat Super[-]ior[/-] if it is available as a prepaid option.
very valid comment Jimbo, i would even go further and say that what is ridiculous is the outrageous price that dstv charges for their decoders and their monthly fees.Why does the headline refer to it as 'Ridiculously cheap'? Surely current decoders could be priced better?! Kind of implies that DSTV's prices are dead on at R2500 :wtf:
Ya, I think I was surprised that MyBB went with that headline. I would gone with something like StarSat Shows DSTV how it's done!very valid comment Jimbo, i would even go further and say that what is ridiculous is the outrageous price that dstv charges for their decoders and their monthly fees.
in Europe you get 150 channels, with some in HD PLUS phone PLUS uncapped DSL 4 to 8 Mbps for less than 50 euros.
dstv management makes unbelievable profits, drives bentleys and such, forget mercs but i guess as long as their customer dont mind being ripped off, they will continue.
startsat, even with a debatable (very) content is priced a lot more correctly.
