Compare DStv Compact Vs DStv Compact Plus Package Price & Channels List

Basic Information

DStv Compact and DStv Compact Plus are parts of the package services provided by cable TV network DStv. Both packages are like two ends of a spectrum, with the DStv Compact Plus package providing a richer bouquet of services – or channels – as exemplified by the “Plus” in the name.

DStv Compact Plus, for instance, has 142 channels, as against DStv Compact’s 125. That’s a difference of about 17 channels. Expectedly, the price of DStv Compact Plus is much higher.

Several channels in DStv Compact Plus are not available in the Compack package. These channels include MTV Music 24, Nickelodeon, The History Channel, and CBS Justice.

DStv Compact Package Price

DStv offers several packages and the prices are not the same. Apparently the higher the number of channels in a bouquet, the hiher the price – some would argues not necessarily the higher the value. At any rate there’s been a change in the price of the DStv Compact package price. In 2020, it sold at R399/ month. At the moment it is selling at R409/ month.

DStv Compact Plus Package Price

With 17 channels more than DStv Compact, DStv Compact Plus is, expectedly, more expensive, selling for R539/ month (as at June 2021). Previously, it sold for R529/ month. So, speaking, there’s been an increase by R10 in the past year. The increase had led to grumblings by several subscribers, with some threatening at the time to discontinue their subscriptions.

Channels List

DStv, unarguably one of the key players in the cable TV network, has an impressive channels list that caters to the needs of just about anyone and everyone. From entertainment to music to documentaries, there’s something to lance boredom with.

The channels list may be divided into several categories, including documentaries and lifestyles, which totes channels like Discovery ID, National Geographic, and BBC Lifestyle; Sports, which hosts channels like ESPN, WWE Channel, and SS Premier League; movies and entertainment, which is home to channels like Africa Magic Epic, E! Entertainment Television, Studio Universal, M-Net Movies , and Mzansi Magic.
