  1. At least i can now freely upgrade to Family its a deal. Will now wait for 1 November before i resubscribe hahahahaha

    1. If have already subscribe for let’s say access and want to upgrade to compact , I’m I supposed to wait until access is finished

  2. Stop some of us w don’t afford to pay $72 U should put atleast ss3 or 5 n $11 package s tht w cn b able t watch those channels.plz her us plz

  3. It’s still a reap off, considering how much other customers are paying in the region. we still paying 50% more than our South African Counterparts.

    1. it’s just a desperate move by Multichoice Zim as they are losing customers to Multichoice SA.
      Many people in Zim are subscribing via SA..
      Reduce more!!!!!!!!!

    2. Beggars can’t be choosers.
      We should be watching our own Zimbabwean television stations.
      Whatever happened to Econet’s much heralded “Kwese” satellite TV which we were told would be one of the best in the region?
      It was still born I presume.

  4. Zimbabwe is not growing because of shameless business practices thea always shortchange the consumer. Other dstv customers pay much less for more value, while other regions are benefiting from locally probuced content multichoice zimbabwe overcharges customers and don’t invest enough into local productions. Shame on You Multichoice zimbabwe

  5. Having found the alternatives, there is not much that will make me go back to DSTV, as long as you have good internet you can watch whatever you want, whenever you want. The repeats on dstv make life difficult.

  6. Half aloaf is better than nothing thank yu multichoice asika rambai muchidzisa tienzanewo nevamwe mucontinet

  7. Yah what can we say it sounds better but still its too expensive comparing to South africa.

  8. Uye machanel enyu kubva pashayavo anoita 5 mari munoti tese tiriva pfumi here sabc 123,etv ,btv murikutadza kuzviisavo pa 5 mari hamusi kuonavo kuti kunze kwakatsva here

  9. … They will still be showing Steven Seagul, Jean Claud & Dolf Lundgren movies EVERY WEEK, week after week after week … same old 5#1t after week !!!!!!!

  10. we really like to watch DSTV, we really appreciate what you have done. My special request is you go down a little bit so that someone poor like me can afford paying for Premium. may we can say Premium $50….. i tell you will see how money will flood in you pockets.

  11. your prices are still unafordable,thats when u find, kuti mangwana tambo sucriber mangwana tambosisa,your price are too much

  12. Ive been on family bouquet it seems we getting two new channels but ??? how many channels are been taken off.

  13. Its still too much can you reduce for every Zimbabwean to afford this, if not people will not pay and can you check on your accounts that are not being paid on every month.

  14. too many repeats anda thats annoying. value for money is the 21st century thing. Reduce prices and more volumes we wont skip our monthly subs hence mre money for you.

  15. Dstv is still a rip off.Better to get super fast internet and watch what you want to and when you want to.Instead of all the rubbish on Dstv.Very over priced for what you get.I havent connected for almost 3 months now and it is the best thing I have ever done.Satellite tv is going to become obselete in the next few years.Mark my words.

  16. Does Dstv have a new list of bouquet channels,if so please can we have them. Thanking you in advance.

  17. Your subscriptions are still expensive. If you reduce your prices so that most of us can afford the premium bouquet I think it will be better that way.

  18. you guys joke around with us dollars dstv premium should be made affordable even ordinary civil servants

  19. Agree with the above post by Anonymous. dstv is showing the same movies on the same channels in the same time slots literally the following day.

    Can also agree that I am tired of outdated, cheap movies. All dstv wants is for us all to subscribe to Box Office in order to see different movies.

    Shape up dstv or you will be loosing customers!!!!!!
