This will be most beneficial to businesses and anyone who subscribes to DStv regularly. For some of us, DStv subscriptions prices are very high because many of us spend just about an hour daily watching TV. So we end up paying for what we do not use.

The best answer to this problem would be a pay-as-you-go feature but DStv is yet to give us that. Pay-as-you-go would allow us to pay only for what we watch. But that is not the case with current packages. Once you subscribe, whether you watch it or not, your money will be gone after 30 days.
