DStv Compact channels on Sports
Because broadcasters like SuperSport still shell out big bucks for live sports coverage, you might need to be on the expensive packages to get the best sports content.
However, DStv Compact customers will still be able to enjoy good sports content from the likes of BLITZ, SS Premier League, SS Football, SS Variety 3, SS Variety 4, ESPN, WWE, and TellyTrack among others.
This is one of the DStv packages that bring you superior football coverage, big enough to allow you to watch your favourite soccer teams from Serie A, the Europa League, UCL, EPL, LaLiga, and more.
Top SuperSports channels available on the Compact channels are listed below.

Current DStv Compact Price 2023
Prices keep rising for everything from clothing to TVs, but they’re not just increasing for things we buy at stores; they’re also rising for services we use every day.
While some good local TV stations are being removed from the bouquets, the price increases for DStv subscriptions have become a norm despite the massive uproar by subscribers.
For both existing and new DStv Compact subscribers, the new price is R429 per month.
Using DStv Compact with XtraView
You can get the most out of your Compact package by using it with XtraView. This makes a lot of sense if you plan to use it on multiple TV screens. You don’t need to pay a separate DStv Compact fee for every decoder you own. All you need to do is pay a single XtraView fee.
Using Compact with XtraView will cost you a total of R549 per month. The total cost for this setup is gotten by summing up the price of the Compact Subscription (R429 per month), with the XtraView Access fee (R110 per month).
People ask questions about the channels they will get on DStv compact with XtraView. The truth is: 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.
