DStv Premium Package Price & Channels List

DStv Premium Package Price & Channels List


In South Africa, the premium package comes with 158 television and radio channels, making it the ultimate in the pack. However, you may want to think of it as more extensive, juicier meat.

Expectedly, as in almost all things premium, subscribers get to fork over more than the usual fees that come with packages in the lower leagues, packages with fewer channels and fewer choices. In other words, subscribers get to pay more money for more channels.

Unlike the Indian, EasyView, Access, Family, Compact and Compact Plus packages, with subscription fees running from R260 to R539 monthly, the premium package ranges from R779 to R909 monthly depending on the type of package, which includes streaming, decoder and both.
