Not all packages are affected by price increases, and the following services will not be hit by the hikes.

MultiChoice said customers can “manage their DStv costs” by making one annual payment for the full year’s subscription and then receive one month of DStv for free.
Users can also “lock in” their price for two years by taking a 24-month Price Lock deal.
