DStv Price Lock – Skip the annual increase

MultiChoice recently announced its annual DStv price adjustments.

Subscribers have two options when it comes to avoiding the price increase.

The first is to make an annual payment, and receive a month’s free DStv.

The second is to sign up for a Price Lock offer that will fix your fees at their current level for the next 24 months.

Price Lock is only available for DStv Premium or Compact, and requires a debit order to be authorised.

The bundles include an Explora 2 decoder, your monthly subscription, and the PVR and XtraView fees.

Price Lock comparison

To see how much you will save, however, we conducted a price comparison.

The comparison assumes that you want a DStv Explora 2 decoder, and PVR or XtraView services.

It also includes installation for the Premium package with Wi-Fi Connector, and Compact deals.

It further assumes that you would be able to buy an Explora 2 outright for R999, or for R1,699 including installation.

MultiChoice’s repayment plans for the DStv Explora 2 work out to be much more expensive than the retail pricing.

Crucially, the comparison also assumes you take up a Price Lock offer before the start of April.
