DStv EasyView Channels, Package and Its Price

Since DStv started in South Africa in 1986 as the first subscription television service not located in the United States, the company has grown to become one of the biggest in the country. With a combination of channels that show local TV shows, as well as offer international entertainment, the network provider has outlasted many naysayers with their dynamic business model. In a bid to satisfy all customers irrespective of their budget, DStv has divided its channels into six different packages – Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, Family, Access, and EasyView. Each of these packages comes at different prices to suit the needs and budget of users.

Although the more expensive packages come with more channels and benefits, the less expensive ones with fewer channels also contain carefully selected channels to still ensure that viewers have endless entertainment. In order to make DStv affordable for just anyone, the EasyView package was added. It is one of the cheapest packages available on DStv and to most young people, even some students can afford to pay for this package on a monthly basis. Aside from the TV channels that subscribers of this plan enjoy, they will also have access to all DStv audio channels.
