[i really dont beleive that anyone can say SABC is worthwile or even watchable it is basically TV fodder fed to alot of people with no other choice. DSTV is good ;but it is way overpriced --once again it is a S.A. monopoly and there is no competition;the other compact option is not really worth it ,as the best channels are taken out BBC prime;History Channel ;Discovery Channel;and other sports channels.If you take out a 12 month contract they will only charge for 11 months.Dont waste time on the compact contract you will regret it.DSTV is great for cycling ;most tours are shown.I have had it for 2 months now and have not watched Etv or SABC once since. NNF QUOTE=mbaymike]Not sure how many of the hubbers feel the same way, but, I feel that cycling should be shown more on our normal TV channels.....1,2,3 and ETV.
Currently if you don't pay R400 a month for DSTV you don't get to watch any cycling. You only get to read about the big races and so on a month down the line in the Ride or Bicycling. Surely cycling is more popular than 5 years or so ago. I don't have R400 a month to spend on DSTV with 200 channels. If they had the option of only buying the sport and doccie channels every month I would sign up. Surely there are many other peoples who would also only buy those channels. I am not interested in all the bumping and grinding going on on half of the channels.
What do you think?
