After being a subscriber for 20 years I now have first hand experience of utter incompetence. My debit order went off without fail on the 7th of each month. Come 7 September it did not go off, waited until 10 September and give them a call. Was told the debit order date was changed to 20th of each month (but they cannot say why?!). Also was told not to worry all will be good on 20 September. Then on 14 September my subscription was blocked, called them and was told a story that they do not know why, etc. etc. but not to worry they will immediately do the debit order and switch it back on. Signal came back but still no debit order. Then this morning again no signal, another, less friendly call this time and was told the debit order did not go off due to a "technical problem at the bank (the bank disagrees though!). promised the debit order will revert back to the 7th of each month and that the one that did not go off on 7 September will go off within 2 hours....now almost 4 hours later, no debit order going off, no signal and a very p&^%$$# off customer. See on Hello Peter literally hundreds of complaints about similar issues, Oh and every consultant spins a different amount what i supposedly owe and they then have the cheek to want a reconnection fee even if they are at fault! Anybody else had similar problems? And pretty please a number to call their accounts dept on without going through their useless call centre?

Agree with Lance, we switched DSTV off in Jan 2015 in think it was and now use either Netflix, Prime Video or Hulu and  Apple are soon joining the party swell. 

Not used Showmax as that is part of DSTV. However should they offer my sport on Showmax at a reasonable price I may reconsider it. I know they have been trialing some sport on Showmax - but we will first see how much they want to rip the nation off.

Ditto. 

I was fed up with with the incompetence. 

Fed up with the same movies and programs over and over.

Compare that paying R900 to what I get for R170 on Netflix.  And then the data usage.

NETFLIX JOU OU DORING.

Ek het ook my DSTV afgeskakel so 'n paar jaar terug en oorgegaan na Netflix.  Ons as huisgesin is omtrent 95% op YouTube.

Ons kyk baie flieks, Sport, Realiteits programme en reekse op YouTube.  Rugby hoogtepunte is gewoonlik dieselfde dag beskikbaar op YouTube.

As ek braai gebruik ek YouTube om na my tipe musiek te luister deur hulle video's te speel.   Ek vra gewoonlik vir die kuiervriende wat hulle wil luister.   Dit werk soos 'n droom.

My algemene kennis het ook baie verbeter want as jy iets wil weet dan Youtube jy dit.  Dis vereweg beter as die eentonige DSTV reekse.

Het darem met die hoeveelste probeerslag weer my DStv aan die gang kon kry...met weer 'n belofte van "we will immediately put your debit order through", selle storie Saterdag gekry en niks is "through" nie, nou 'n paar ure later en steeds niks is "through" nie, sal seker more of oor die nawek weer afgeskakel word :(

Maar ek is nou sterk aan die woel om vesel na my huis te kry en dan Netflix waarna dit koebaai is vir DStv. Sien terloops vanoggend in die laaste ruk iets soos 19 000 klagtes oor die spul op Hello Peter....maar dit lyk my nie asof dit hulle vreeslik pla nie....

Guys there are alternatives to the rugby in your own home its easy to set u a VPN and join iTV for free or even subscribe to an alternative and watch what ever sport you want, if that is what is holding you back. 

Sport was my main hold up, but there are ways to overcome them without DSTV.

Don't miss dstv at all and we were watching less and less anyway for that ridiculous amount every month!! As Zack mentions, YouTube has plenty of interesting articles.

Jorg, had problems with our dstv for the umteenth time as well, got them to sort out the problem once again and then I discontinued our partnership!! No more frustration!!!

Presies dieselfde by ons. Daar is soveel en magdom van informasie beskikbaar op U tube.  Die Netflix is net so goed met die dat jy films, reekse programme kan kyk.

Search byvoorbeeld Castles en die magdom van programme en info en films is verbasend.  

 

Die DSTV manne wanneer kom "Die Hard 2" en "Transporter" weer op julle behoort nou al die herhalings volgorde te hê.........................laughinglaughinglaughing

Grappie net! ! ! ! !

Ek het ook al gedink om my dstv af te sit. Ek weet net nie wat sal die beste internet diens wees om te gebruik nie. Ek het nou n telkom lyn in, as ek YouTube dan vat dit baie lank om te laai en ook as jy movie kyk op dstv now dan vries die movie soms heeltemaal. Ek sal graag wil hoor wat gebruik julle en hoeveel data sal dan voldoende wees indien mens dstv af sit.

Install Winscribe VPN - you get 10Gb free then select UK as the server and register with Itv also for free. 

Logon to Itv and enjoy the rugby, all the matches are shown live

Thanks Brian. Watched the highlights of the matches so far. laughing

They show a lot more than what is shown on DSTV 200.

Going through the program schedule I cannot find live broadcasts of upcoming matches. Will dig around some more.

Hendrik each game is shown live on Itv. If you miss it live then you will probably catch the highlights.

Enjoy
