On Saturday morning, 01 May 2010, South Africa’s second satellite TV network, TOPTV, launched and sold out 50 000 decoders in less than six hours, a world first.
TopTV offers subscribers seven different pricing options ranging from R99 to R249 per month. Channels on offer include those created specifically by TopTV with content sourced both locally and internationally, including Top Movies, Top One, Top Gospel and Top Crime, as well as a range of highly sought-after international channels from outside suppliers such as Fox News, Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Showtime and BET. Nine locally developed channels will offer audiences a mix of local and international flavours. Check it out if you feel like trying something that’s more affordable, or if you don’t have DSTV at all.
