The Portuguese package is also getting discontinued...
Very unlikely! Supply a link to an official announcement or stop spreading rumours.
...it doesn't come as a surprise since their channels are available on Compact.
Definitely a false statement.
There was a mistake with that made a few months ago, nothing more.
Much of the rest of the post is wrong as well but not bothered to comment further.
@Mods - do your job please, these threads need to be answered and you know it.
For instance - there's another thread suggesting that the Indian package will change, why no answer???? What will your bosses say if they find out how badly you do your jobs here??
But since they're hardly answering anything again, maybe let's all just presume that this forum is being abandoned by MC...
The Portuguese package is also getting discontinued it doesn't come as a surprise since their channels are available on Compact. KykNet sister channels are available on the FAMILY PACKAGE. I don't know why people ignore that package but its definitely on Family not everything is on Compact and I'm still shocked the package was around I was told years ago that the package was replaced with DStv Access and Easyview even when I wanted to opt to Select I was told it had already gotten discontinued and yes I was in South Africa at the time.
Kyknet on CH144 is not included in Compact. Please can pressure be put on DSTV to add this as this is the only channel I really want to watch - otherwise Afrikaans people will now be forced to subscribe to Compact Plus @R519 per month! Rip off!
@Biltongboer , change of circumstances;
Apparently Marietjie Groenewald left MC months ago :-o
So suggest you call 011 289-3000
press 0 - then wait for ages
then ask for someone senior in corporate communications
Wow MC, hopefully a mistake, else how do you think you're going to get away with this?! You would surely have to add on those channels for those still requiring them, or end up in really hot water.
But @Biltongboer (our old friend Johan), this forum is just staffed by juniors so don't expect much more feedback here. Suggest you phone in and try get someone senior, like our old forum mod Marietjie, to try address this directly for you.
Please do post your progress though, we're all very interested to see what happens.
Thanks for the reply.
But what will I have to pay for these packages?
Surely you can't expect me to pay R519 / month for the Compact Plus package,
were I only pay R265 / month now to get access to channels 144, 305 and 402.
These channels you only get from the Compact Plus package upwards.
Hi @Biltongboer, The Select 1 and 2 packages will be discontinued. Customers on these packages need to move to our other packages by the 15th of October. You can move to either DStv Premium, Compact Plus & Compact where your channels will be included.
Can one of the mods please confirm what is happening with the select packages.
Giving the select customers the family package won't cut it.
So please confirm the details of the change in October 2019.
