In this article, we’ll be giving you all the DStv channels you will get when you subscribe to Easyview. Even when it’s not a very big bouquet, Easyview is still preferred by many households in South Africa.

Knowing the channels available on this package and how much it would cost to have it for a month will help you in deciding if this is the best DStv package for you and your home.

These are categorized collections. If you want a single streamlined channels list, please see our up-to-date DStv Easyview channels list.

Movie Channels on EasyView

There are only three movie channels on DStv EasyView. And if your primary entertainment need is movies, then there is a good chance this package will not give you what you want. But if you have chosen the package to suit your budget, then you can still complement the movie category with other features.

The movie add-on feature is not available to EasyView subscribers. This means that you will need to go for the DStv BoxOffice. Note that using BoxOffice will cost you an additional R99.

Sports Channels on EasyView

SuperSport Blitz is just for highlights. This means that there is only one dedicated sports channel on this package. If you want a package with lots of sporting events, you need to upgrade to a higher DStv package, possibly Compact or Compact Plus.

There are surprisingly five faith-based TV stations on this package. This is a whole lot when you consider how cheap this bouquet is. Paying for a bigger package when all you want is faith-based TV channels is a waste of money. Why pay for channels you won’t even watch for a whole month?

Simply get this bouquet to start enjoying sermons, teachings, live services, and Christian documentaries.

Showmax on DStv Easyview

If there is ever a group of subscribers who could benefit greatly from the extra range of entertainment options Showmax offers, it is those on Easyview.

Considering the fact that Easyview is the DStv plan with the lowest number of channels, it would be a good idea to complement it with the entertainment features on Showmax.

You can add Showmax to your DStv Easyview subscription and make a single payment for both services. Adding Showmax (R99) to Easyview (R29) will bring your subscription to a total cost of R128.

Whether you are an existing Showmax user or not you can use it on DStv. However, if you are not an existing user, you’ll have to create an account to start using this service. This is necessary as it is the only way DStv can confirm your acceptance of Showmax’s terms and conditions.

EasyView Package Upgrade

Subscribers on EasyView have the option of upgrading to any of the 5 packages as you have them below:

  • Upgrade to DStv Access at R120;
  • Upgrade to DStv Family at R309;
  • Upgrade to DStv Compact at R429;
  • Upgrade to DStv Compact Plus at R549;

With Easyview, there are no additional fees for renewals. Unless there is a mandatory price increase on the package from DStv, your Easyview package will always be renewed at the same price.
