Which is the number one paid TV service provider in Africa? DStv of course! If most people had one word to describe DStv packages, that word would be ‘expensive’. But If I was told to describe the DStv experience with one word, that word would be ‘entertaining’. Nothing comes close to the DStv experience in TV entertainment.
What are DStv packages?
DStv packages are paid TV options that come with different channel selections for a specific monthly fee.
DStv from Multichoice was among the first companies in Africa to venture into pay-TV service provision.
The company that hails from South Africa has now become a household name for millions of families in Africa.
Compared to other pay-TV options like Startimes and Gotv, most people feel that DStv is a bit too expensive for their budget.
Still, DStv has very limited packages so you either afford it or not. Fortunately, you can subscribe to Gotv which is the little sibling of DStv and it’s more affordable and flexible.

DStv compact plus [Ksh. 4500]
If you have some Ksh. 4500 to spare every month, why not spend that on some quality TV entertainment. One may wonder why I Keep saying quality but wait until you see what some of these TV service providers give you.
