MoM, thanks for the detailed reply explaining how the Multichoice set up operates. Will study it in a bit more detail later. Regarding the subscribers from other countries paying more than we do I think we would need to know a number of other factors. Like what are the wages they receive compared to us in South Africa? I'm not saying you are wrong just that it's not always possible to compare monetary values without being aware of all of the facts.
On the competition front I would advise that I once entered a competition on the Supersport site and to my surprise actually WON!! That's how I received my Explora. Had my name shown in the Winners Circle too. I'm FAMOUS!!! So, would guess that if MoM says we Premium subscribers are all included in certain competitions then I guess we are.
Now about those Pensioner discounts?
