Why do people cancel DStv

DStv is one of the largest digital content providers in South Africa, with more than 20 million paying members. Although in recent times, there’s been an influx of international competitors that threaten to steal away some of their members.

One of the most popular reasons people end up closing their DStv subscriptions is because of the cost. It’s not cheap to have a recurring monthly fee for a digital subscription service, and sometimes that cost is just too high to keep it going.

Another reason some people cancel is that DStv isn’t putting out any good new movies or tv shows. Their whole platform is built around providing its South African users like yourself with good quality content that’s always being updated. And if they stop doing that, many people will simply cancel their subscriptions.
