Cape Town – MultiChoice will be unblocking dozens of its premium access TV channels usually only available on its most expensive TV package, DStv Premium, to millions of DStv subscribers who are on lower bouquets for a week starting Monday 11 November to Sunday 17 November as part of an all-you-can see TV buffet.

MultiChoice's smorgasbord of "Open Week" TV content announcement comes as struggling rival On Digital Media (ODM) plans to unveil its new brand-new StarSat pay-TV offering on Thursday which will replace the damaged TopTV brand.

MultiChoice will give subscribers to DStv Access, Select 1, Select 2, DStv Family, DStv Compact and DStv Extra dozens of TV channels for a week at no extra cost; channels which DStv Premium subscribers pay a premium for.

This includes the range of sought-after SuperSport channels as well as a litany of third-party and M-Net supplied entertainment, documentary, music, news, movie and kids channels.

The sought-after M-Net branded entertainment and movie channels will be made available to Select 1, Select 2, DStv Family, DStv Compact and DStv Extra subscribers on the weekend of 16 and 17 November.

The DStv Premium Open Week will give DStv subscribers access to programming ranging from cricket and rugby action to Bear Grylls, and from CBeebies to Top Gear Australia.
