    This is a move in the right direction i am great football lover right from childwood,what i don'tknow is wether more English games will feauture within these specified channels mostly arsenal and chelsea games.
    my sincere wish is when you will come up with a package which only show sports even if we pay 25$ a month
    but still it is now a little bit affordable, keep the good work,and let you not wait for a competitor like we are seeing in Kenya today between the mobile firms.

    I like. Good move. I have two suggestions though. Could you consider including The Crime Channel 255 and CBEEBIES 306? That would make the package more complete

    Am still waiting for the day that dstv will come up with a strictly sports package in kenya or a provision where the client is given a chance to select the channels that he opts for.it will be better for dstv business wise and convenient for me since it will be unnecessary for me to go to the club just for the game.as your former client i got tired of buying EPL matches at ksh.6,300 on premium package.there is a huge market there which is untapped due to your pricing.the top cream goes for rugby,golf,fencing etc while the middle class where the numbers are is mainly spanish and EPL.go out there and do a research and you will be surprised.ever thought of launching a strictly sports package in africa?
