I think Digital Satellite Television (DStv) need to roll back its Subscription Fees and comes up with incredible offers before it is too late since it keeps losing its premium subscribers.

MultiChoice South Africa disclosed in June that it had lost many DStv Premium subscribers during the past financial year due to increased competition from Netflix.

According to a report from Mybroadband, DStv Premium subscribers across the pay-TV operator’s markets in Africa have been declining for the past three years.

Naspers’ annual results for the year ended 31 March 2018 showed that DStv lost 41,000 Premium subscribers.

2016/2017, they lost 135,000 DStv Premium subscribers.
Between April 2015  – March 2016 they lost 255,000 premium subscribers.

However, Its overall subscriber base continues to grow, but most of this growth comes from lower-end subscribers.

The graph below shows, from March 2015 subscriber numbers started to drop – and continued to do so into 2018.

Despite all of this, MultiChoice plans on removing Sony Entertainment, channel 127 and Sony Max, channel 128 from DStv channel list.

Effect of October 31st, 2018, GOtv Max subscribers will also lose out on Sony Max but they will get new stations in replacement which are BET and Select Sport 5.
