When we first published this article, we wrote that DSTV was switching off customers who were accessing South African accounts from Zimbabwe.
This is not true however. We profusely apologise for carrying that story.
The truth is a bit more complicated and we will publish on that very soon explaining exactly what’s going on.
Yes, accessing South African DSTV content from anywhere outside South Africa is illegal and not permitted by Multichoivce. They just don’t have a way of stopping such pirate accounts from receiving signal.
Again, very sorry for running an inaccurate story. We will give you details soon.
