    MultiChoice had 6.6m DStv customers in South Africa at the end of September, and 2.6m in the rest of sub-Saharan Africa.

    Not significant numbers we are talking about here.


    I do not know of ONE single colleague that is a Netflix subscriber, but I know many that are DStv subscribers.

    577 000 more or less for Africa, likely not entirely accurate, not bad

    Nigeria and South Africa would make around 70% of that number if not more

    Boggles the mind that Netflix has less subscribers than active Steam account users.

    Makes one wonder how much Valve is worth overall.

    You also have to remember steam takes a 30% cut on all sales on the platform, they make pure profit on every single AAA game.

    Odd, in our department the Netflix subscribers outnumber the DSTv subscribers. I subscribe to "the galaxy's most resilient 'research' site" myself
