Great savings on TVs and other gadgets this weekend

MyBroadband came under a bit of fire this week for two DStv-related articles it ran.

First was Why DStv is worth the money, which a few people politely disagreed with, followed by The price of leaving DStv.

While some commentators played it safe and called our staff various types of human and animal genitals, some made the rather bold statement that we are being paid off by MultiChoice – DStv’s parent company.

Well, it’s time for the truth – we are in fact sponsored by MultiChoice.

All MyBroadband employees get free DStv, a 100-inch LED TV, and a subscription to Basket Weavers Weekly from the company, as well as rides in the MultiChoice helicopter on Fridays.

Look up right now. You see that helicopter? That’s me, writing more pro-DStv articles.

Next week Monday’s lead: How DStv saved Christmas.

Now, onto this week’s best tech deals. And if we have not frightened you off, check out our new deals website.
