Largest IT Website in South Africa MyBroadband has joined global content providers to launch MyBroadband TV – a digital satellite TV service that directly contends with DStv and StarSat’s pay-TV services.
With 1 million unique monthly visitors, serving the native market with technology and business tech news and the largest online community in the country, MyBroadband TV provides over 100 channels at only R99 per month. For an additional R49 per month, MyBroadband TV users will also get unlimited access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO Now, and Amazon Prime.
Worth noting is that the new MyBroadband TV service uses the same satellite dish and decoder technology as DStv. This means present DStv subscribers can simply move to the new MyBroadband TV service.
How to switch to MyBroadband TV?
To switch to MyBroadband TV, existing DStv customers can simply buy a MyBroadband Smartcard and slot it in their DStv decoder.
Another alternative is to purchase the new MyBroadband TV Explorer decoder, with a fixed smartcard, for R599.
The innovative MyBroadband TV Explorer decoder has full Internet connectivity to upkeep its online content products.
