DStv Flex Coming Soon: What you Should Know

Choose Your Own Channels

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.
The aim of “DStv Flex” is to try and keep highly-prized DStv Premium customers within MultiChoice’s subscriber base – a fast-dwindling top-end subscriber segment – and to try and limit the growing churn of premium DStv subscribers.
