      @nwayne54. Hey genius, what else is out there, DSTV have us by the short and curlies. Top Tv is rubbish, SABC is rubbish, ETV has only the news and movies from 1929.

    Stupid. Sit meer kanale by maar die coverage area is steeds beperk. Brei eerder julle coverage area uit en verseker so dat julle baie meer customers kry!!!

    That is all good and well but we need COVERAGE in more areas ASAP.

    I admire Multichoice for the way they have progressed, I have One question when arfe they going to show their appreciation to the many who helped them get where they are. The other day I asked a member of their staff can they not give pensioners a discounted rate, most of us love the system but is getting very expensive. I was told yes there is a special rate, but get this only if they are in a retirement village, Now why, Telkom help the pensioners,SABC help us the rates dept help us why not Multichoice. They donate a lot to deserving cases but how did they get to where they are. Surely they can look into it .
