Cape Town – MultiChoice on Tuesday announced that they are renaming their DStv Extra package, which is the package between DStv Premium and DStv Compact, to DStv Compact Plus.

This change will eliminate any confusion between the Extra package and the company’s XtraView service which allows customers to connect more than one decoder under one subscription.

DStv Compact Plus costs just R489 a month and offers customers a range of entertainment that fits their lifestyle and their pockets. This includes sport, general and kids’ entertainment. 

Customers on this package also receive access to BoxOffice, Catch Up, and DStv Now online and on the app for smartphones and tablets.
MultiChoice also has a special surprise for its DStv Compact customers. From 1 September, Compact customers will get a chance to try out Compact Plus at no additional cost for a month until the end of September. 
Current active Compact customers will automatically be upgraded to Compact Plus for this time without having to do anything.
