Here’s What the $7 DStv Lite Package Contains…

Posted by Read 33 Comments

Yesterday Techzim announced the reduction in prices of DStv packages by Multichoice, while we also did a comparison to what we’re being charged locally and what those in South Africa are paying as well.

When one scrutinises the list of packages, a $7 bouquet stands out as the new entry-level point for someone to start enjoying entertainment in Zimbabwe. The amount sounds “reasonable” but it becomes all relative based on the channels that one will be able to enjoy.

As a bit of background, DStv actually launched DStv lite in South Africa in 2010 to their audience there and later rebranded it to DStv Access in April 2013. It seems that either the name was a success down South (but then why would you rebrand?) or that the department that deals with the naming of bouquets didn’t really wanna spend time finding something that will resonate with us here. DStv lite is currently only offered in Zimbabwe as of date.

DStv Lite comes with a mix of 28 channels, that cover various categories one will be hoping to enjoy. The list of channels is below (yes it currently shows 25, we’re working to find out the other 3):
