I hope it's not more african channels. We already have enough of those. The reason i dislike those channels is most of the time the sound quality is crap.

100 channels for R199 for 30 days. That works out to 6c per channel per day.

It can only be crap.

be bold, be innovative.... give us the list of channels, and give the option to pay per channel, and only receive what we want.
otherwise no thanx

I like this actually.

Weekends I go out to watch the Rugby anyway. (Gives me a reason to go out and see my friends or just get out of the house) +1

Other than that, 100+ channels at R199 p/m does not sound too bad. Even if there is re-runs. +1

If you buy the Decoder + dish cash and do the prepaid voucher thing, then there is no contracts involved.
If I dont want the service, I just do not buy the prepaid voucher. +1

The dish can be used with an openview HD decoder. +1

In the words of Springsteen
I bought a bourgeois house in the Hollywood hills
With a trunkload of hundred thousand dollar bills
Man came by to hook up my cable TV
We settled in for the night my baby and me
We switched 'round and 'round 'til half-past down
There was fifty-seven channels and notin' on

Well now home entertainment was my baby's wish
So I hopped into town for a satellite dish
I tied it to the top of my Japanese car
I came home and I pointed it out into the stars
A message came back from the great beyond
There's fifty-seven channnels and nothin' on

Well we might' a made some friends with some billionaires
We might' a got all nice and friendly
If we'd made it upstairs
All I got was a note that said "Bye-bye John
Our love is fifty-seven channels and nothin' on"

So I bought a .44 magnum it was solid steel cast
And in the blessed name of Elvis well I just let it blast
'Til my TV lay in pieces there at my feet
And they bsted me for disturbin' the almighty peace
Judge said "What you got in your defense son ?"
"Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on"
I can see by your eyes friend you're just about gone
Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on
Fifty-seven channels and nothin'...

They do have Discovery Science (which TopTV also had) and it is excellent.

Kids channels are pathetic in comparison with DSTV.
