MultiChoice seems to be taking a new dimension in an attempt to provide DStv subscribers much cheaper service. The DStv flex will give subscribers more advantage over their subscription as they can choose the channel of their choice.
In an article from Thinus Ferreira who is a TV Journalist, he made this known that Multichoice will be breaking up its combined entertainment and sports channels offering and unbundling it. Subscribers will still have access to a premium collection of entertainment TV channels in a so-called “skinny bundle”, together with an optional add-on package of sports channels.

He alluded that If MultiChoice does break up its existing DStv pay-TV bundle by splitting out sport into optional, with separate add-on TV packs, it would be the biggest change to DSTv bundling and TV packages in Africa in the last 25 years.
As part of a new possible DStv bouquet structuring plan, MultiChoice is looking at allowing DStv subscribers to choose their sport channels – the most expensive content – separately in the form of 3 different, optional, add-on sports packages each containing various bundled SuperSport and ESPN channels.
DStv Flex Functionality
Customers who apply for Flex will be charged a mandatory amount of money per month which is yet unknown, with each extra ‘pack’ stacking on top of that. This price includes compulsory Entertainment TV channels with 64 premium channels.
Subscribers will also be able to add between one and three sports packs from here if they want sports channels. The most amazing thing about this development is that subscribers will have more control.
While this might take some time, let’s wait and see how it will unfold.
