MultiChoice linear pay-TV subscribers rise by 900,000 but growth ‘subdued’

Pan-African media group MultiChoice, owner of pay-television broadcaster SuperSport and pay-television operator DStv, has increased its pay-television subscriber base by 900,000 customers, bringing its number up to 21.8 million households, comprising 9 million in South Africa and 12.8 million in the rest of sub-Saharan Africa.

MultiChoice ascribed the "subdued" 5-per-cent year-on-year growth to "the tough economic environment and elevated subscriber growth during Covid-19 related lockdowns in the previous year".
