SA pay-TV player targets 100 channels

StarSat, formerly TopTV, hopes to have over 100 channels on air by 1 January 2014, parent company On Digital Media (ODM) said in a press statement on Tuesday, 19 November 2013.

The announcement formed part of a press release about the re-launch of TopTV as StarSat, which ODM revealed at the end of October.

ODM said at the time that the new StarSat bouquets would be available from 1 December 2013. According to the pay TV satellite operator, it decided to whittle the 7 packages previously available on TopTV down to 4.

However, it revealed in advertisements placed in the Sunday papers and in the recently issued press release that it would launch with 5 bouquets:

Bouquets Price (monthly) Video channels Audio channels
StarSat Special R99 47 25
StarSat Smart R149 67 25
StarSat Super R199 81 25
StarSat Indian (also available as add-on) R99 9 0
StarSat Chinese (also available as add-on) R149 17 0

StarSat said that it would sell a decoder capable of receiving high-definition (HD) for R599, including dish and installation. The decoder alone would cost R399, StarSat said.
