MultiChoice is renaming its DStv Extra package to DStv Compact Plus from today.
The package – which sits between DStv Premium and DStv Compact, is priced at R489 a month and offers sport, and general and kids’ entertainment.
“Customers on this package also receive access to BoxOffice, Catch Up, and DStv Now,” said MultiChoice.
“DStv Compact Plus is a great solution for our Compact customers looking for more entertainment for their family,” said Mark Rayner, CEO for MultiChoice South Africa.
“This change will also eliminate any confusion between the Extra package and the company’s XtraView service.”
“MultiChoice also has a surprise for DStv Compact customers. From 1 September, Compact customers will get a chance to try Compact Plus at no additional cost for a month to end September.”
Current active Compact customers will automatically be upgraded to Compact Plus for the period.
