Streaming killed the satellite star

September 20, 2018

Traditional TV is dying, with streaming quickly becoming the new normal. Mostly thanks to Fast Fibre Internet being more accessible than ever before and services like Netflix providing easy access to on-demand content.

Pay less, get so much more

In South Africa, traditional broadcasters have failed to innovate and now find themselves in an awkward position—scrambling to play catch-up with streaming services that offer more convenience at a much lower price. The combined cost of Netflix and our 10Mbps uncapped Fibre service is only R696, R113 cheaper than DStv Premium at R809 a month! Check the table below for our price comparison.

Watch on your time

The Internet has made us so used to having anything at the touch of a button that regular broadcasting no longer makes sense. Netflix gives you the power of choice, you can watch whatever you want the moment it’s released, in one sitting if you feel like it. Forget channel flipping through DStv’s often clunky menus and channel navigation! With Netflix, you simply search for whatever you feel like watching.

So much more to watch

South Africans have been moving away from DSTV in droves as Fibre reaches more homes throughout the country and fast reliable Internet access becomes more affordable. In comparison, Fibre Internet is far more value for money than DSTV could ever be. With a DStv Premium subscription, you have access to 148 channels, though most will go unwatched and the consensus is that the service is filled with reruns and repeats. While DSTV does give you (limited) access to on-demand content, you need a good Internet connection to make the most of it anyway.

Fibre gives you more than movies

With Fibre Internet you unlock so much more than entertainment, you get a reliable connection that allows you to work from home with ease, game online without lag and lengthy download times and stream all the content you want buffer free in HD.
