Current DStv Compact Price 2022

The price of items in SA keeps going up and it’s not just food items, it’s clothes, shoes, smartphones, transportation, and oh, TV entertainment.

It’s no longer news that while some good local channels are being taken off the bouquet, the price increase on DStv packages has become a norm despite the mass outcry by subscribers.

The current DStv Compact price 2022 is R429 per month which means that we’ve had an additional R20 added to the monthly cost. The new price is for both the old and new DStv subscribers using Compact.

Movie Channels on DStv Compact

While some of the movie channels can only be viewed on Premium and Compact Plus. There are still a lot of options for users on this package.

Customers on Compact will get M-Net Movies 3, M-Net Movies 4, Studio Universal, ITH, M-Net City, Vuzu, Universal Channel, Telemundo, BBC Brit, E! Entertainment Television, FOX, Ginx eSports, BET, MTV, Lifetime, CBS Reality, TLNovelas, Discovery TLC Entertainment, Discovery Family, TNT Africa, eMovies, eMovies Extra, kykNET & Kie, Africa Magic Epic, AfricaMagic Family, Real Time, Moja Love, Mzansi Magic, Mzansi Wethu, Mzansi Bioskop, Novela Magic, ZEE World, Star Life, ROK, e.TV Extra, Annual African Festivals, SET Asia, B4U Movies, ZeeTV, Star Plus, Sun TV, Star Vijay, Colors, SET Max, and TV Record.

Sports Channels on Compact

Since broadcasting networks like SuperSport are still paying a lot for coverage of live sporting events, you may have to be on the pricey packages to get the best of sports. But DStv compact customers will still have good sports channels such as BLITZ, SS PSL, SS Premier League (dedicated soccer channel for the Olympics), SS LA LIGA, SS FOOTBALL, SS VARIETY 3, SS VARIETY 4, ESPN, WWE Channel, and TellyTrack.

Using DStv Compact with XtraView

A good way to utilize your Compact package is to use it with XtraView. This makes a lot of sense if you plan to use it on multiple TV screens. Instead of paying a DStv Compact fee for each decoder, you can simply pay a one-time XtraView fee.

Using Compact with XtraView will cost you a total of R539 per month. This total cost is gotten by adding the price of the Compact subscription(R429 p/m) to the XtraView Access Fee (R110 p/m).

There are no additional channels on XtraView. What you get with XtraView is the ability to watch DStv on different TV screens using independent decoders under one DStv Compact subscription. To learn more, see the article on XtraView.

        1. Hi, Ndivhuwo. You don’t need to pay extra money for Catch Up. You only need to download the DStv Now app or purchase a compatible decoder if you don’t have one already. Examples of such decoders are PVR decoders and the latest Exploras with recording capabilities.

    1. It doesn’t appear so for now. Four (4) eMedia channels will be leaving DStv. For now, the only program that will be retained will be the Afrikaans news bulletin which used to be on eTV. It will remain available on Kyknet (channel 144).

          1. Man why you take out 138 and 140? There is no movies now. 107, 103, 108, 112 these channels are boring.

    1. If I move from premium to compact would I still be able to get Showmax and how much will it cost per month? Will I still be able to stream it on different devices?

      1. Hi, Grace. You’ll still be able to use Showmax with DStv Compact. While a standalone Showmax subscription will cost you R99, you’ll get it for R49 per month if you use Compact.

    2. Hi Eke. Why is 128 not on Compact list? How can you down grade from 3 decoders extra view to just one secondary decoder the other one see as primary?

    3. I would just like to know why do they always repeat the same movies that are showing. You removed channel 138 and 140 but you dont replace with another movie channel or improve the movies that are showing. Yet every month we must pay the subscription or we cant watch tv.

    4. Hello, I am just enquiry about the removal of channel 195 on DSTV Acess, like do I have to pay for it to be added on my channels list again?

      1. Yes, you can watch boxing and international fights on Compact. I’d like to add that SuperSport has a boxing calendar. Most boxing matches are aired on the Supersport variety channels.

    5. Hi,
      The DSTV premium has gone up by R120.00 p/m. This is very expensive for a pensioner to pay. Do you still have the “price lock” available? If so can a consultant contact me, please?
