DStv has announced pricing increases on some of its packages for 2020, while others will remain at the previous year’s prices.
The updated fees, will take effect from 1 April, are as follows:
- DStv Premium – a R10.00 (1.24%) price increase
- Compact Plus – a R10.00 (1.93%) increase
- There will be no increase for Compact subscribers
Premium subscribers declined to 20% from 22% in the previous financial year, due to tough economic times and stiff competition from international video streaming services.
Meanwhile, a recent poll run by BusinessTech found that around 13% of South Africans were willing to cut access to services like DStv to cut costs each month.
