Three channels added to DSTV Mobile, SS6 dropped, monthly fees start

Posted on March 30, 2011

In a press release sent out yesterday (29/3/2011) DSTV announced that three new channels are being added to DStv Mobile. The temporary Supersport 6 channel in operation during the World Cup also falls away.

CNNi, E!Entertainment and Sony Max will be added to the existing nine DStv channels that were already in operation (ten with the temporary Supersport 6 during the World Cup).

From the 1st April 2011, the channel lineup will be: eNews, CNNi, Channel O, E! Entertainment, Sony Max, Africa Magic, Cartoon Network, Trace Urban, SuperSport 1, 2 and 3 and SuperSport Blitz

This is a nice balancing up of the channel selection and the addition of CNN is certainly welcome.

The 1st April also sees the introductory phase coming to an end and the new subscription charges for DStv Mobile will come into effect at R36 monthly. DStv Premium subscribers will receive DStv Mobile on both Drifta and DVB-H handsets at no extra cost while DStv Compact subscribers who subscribe via the Drifta before 31 March 2011 can avoid subscription fees until 31 March 2012.
