DStv prices from 2000 to 2013

MultiChoice announced this week that, following its annual review, the price of many of its DStv services will increase from 1 April 2013.

From April DStv Premium subscribers will pay R625 per month for their subscription instead of the current R590 per month.

DStv Compact subscribers will pay R275 per month instead of the usual R260 per month, while DStv Select users will have to fork out R175 per month as opposed to the usual R166.

The access fee for PVR and/or Xtraview will also increase from R65 to R70 per month. DStv EasyView users will also face a higher fee – up from R20 to R29 per month.

This raises the question of how DStv’s prices have changed over the last few years. The following chart and table answers that question.
