Default SUPERSPORT 7 ON DSTV FAMILY PACKAGE IN ROA

There is a press release on the dstv website for countries outside South Africa.please find the pasted press release below.It comes as a shock that us in South Africa we don't have access to LaLiga as compact subscribers who pay R365 but dstv family customers in other countries are getting more content than us yet they pay smaller prices. The link below contains the press release dated today for all countries besides South Africa

You'd be suprised. I know for a very long time there was a bone of contention with the rest of Africa when SA had SS3 on compact and they paid more because of exchange rates. Guess it's their time now

This is very disappointing from Supersport.
I picked this up when the so called new supersport channels were announced.
The rest of Africa getting much more than we do.
"Ongelukkig word ons deur Supersport geboor hier in Suid-Afrika"

But hey this is dstv's cash cow...
Most of the premium subscribers are on premium because of the sport.

Can SS Sandile please give us feedback.

Very true... Im so disappointed. We were told no more repeats but more live sports from the 4th of July but nothing had changed in South Africa. It really hurts me that dstv family in countries get to watch messi and cr7 every weekend but i as q compact subscriber in SA i can't.

SS Sandile i have been waiting for your response since i posted this

What's usually explained is that MC and MCA are different companies with little direct involvement with each other, and that conditions and supplier rights dictate that what works in one set of circumstances doesn't elsewhere.
We're unlikely to get anything more said about MCA here, but doubt anything is set in stone so this situation could change.

There's not a lot of difference between the services but ROA also have their comparative disadvantages. For instance, recently I confirmed that their SS8 is not currently available in HD...

South Africa and the Rest of Africa are separate entities and the content on offer on the different packages varies significantly.
An example of a similar content arrangement is the Uefa Champions League.
Compact customers in SA have access to the Uefa Champions League, whilst in the Rest of Africa they don't.
