DStv, in a seemingly constant battle to improve its reputation, is handing out another free batch of channels for its lower-tier subscribers, specifically DStv Compact members. DStv Compact, which comes with 129 channels, gets a handful of new content to explore in May, all for the incredibly low price of free. New channels include Comedy Central, M-Net Binge, kykNET, History Channel, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., CBS Justice, Curiosity Stream, Africa Magic Urban Movies, 1Magic, MTV Music and a whole bunch of extra SuperSport channels that will, probably, not be showing live sport.
“During this time, we aim to keep our customers entertained with the best available local and international content available to us; we are excited that we can give our customers exclusives such as the Somhale’s The Union which was dubbed as the wedding extravaganza of the year,” said DStv PR manager Ntsika Msuthu.
It was also announced that M-Net was extending the lifetime of its new pop-up channel M-Net Binge Home of HBO, which DStv Premium and Compact Plus owners can watch for another two months. The offer closes out on 28 June 2020. Series such as Silicon Valley, Ballers, True Blood, Big Love, Ballers and True Detective will start showing this week from their first season.
