Nyiko Shiburi, the MultiChoice South Africa chief executive, shared that DStv has also bolstered its Rewards offering. 

Subscribers will be given access to specials, competitions, and customer discounts as well as benefits from BoxOffice, Showmax, and other DStv-related products and services.

“This year subscribers can look forward to more sparkling entertainment and sport like the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Springboks’ incoming and outgoing tours and the Rugby Championship. Customers can also look forward to continued savings thanks to discounts on our DStv Internet bundles,” Shiburi added.

We, at least appreciate these perks!
