In a press statement today MultiChoice said that it will provide its customers with more value and choice by adding DStv Lite as well as several new channels.
Existing bouquets will be improved as follows:
- DStv Select 1 will get 8 additional video channels, to have a total of 34 video channels, 32 radio and 10 DMX music channels.
- DStv Select 2 will get 6 additional video channels, to have a total of 32 video channels, 32 radio and 10 DMX music channels.
- DStv Compact will get 4 additional video channels, to have a total of 44 video channels, 32 radio and 10 DMX music channels.
“The DStv family of bouquets offers the best in movies and entertainment as well as world-class sporting action and many more entertainment across its genres,” MuliChoice said.

We have several new services in the pipeline, which we will start offering our subscribers soon, so watch this space!”
The new improvements will come into effect on 30 April 2010 at 12:00 midday.
