I called again for more than an hour again till tell the consultant that I can no longer hold for this amount of time while he is busy investigating. He said he is escalating my problem heíll come back to me. Fortunately another consultant called but still my problem was not resolved. To my surprise the following day I did see the picture on my second TV and was pleased that my problem was resolved. Regrettably I was sent a bill of R903.60, I called again (6/5/2011) that the reason I am having to decoders I have HD PVR, but because on it I canít watch a second TV, so I canít be charged twice(separately). I did explain that I am calling from a public phone, as I have exhausted all my money trying to solved the problem. The guy did explain that it is not their policy to phone people back, but heíll escalate it (this was for the third time I was told about the word escalation). I had to ask for reference (76510239) so that it can be easy to follow up...This morning (9/5/2011) my services were suspended. I had No money to call them after having spent amount equal to the Dstv premium despite downgrading to compact in order to enjoy the cheaper services. Why do we have to spent so much amount of money on telephone, being on hold, and your problem not being solved. Every time I call Multichoice my bill increases, it is now Standing at more than R1000,00.Please help.
Please PM your account details to myself or MC Manti so that we can investigate the matter further. On XtraView calls, there is a team that will call back, so I will also check what happened there, since you have only received one call so far. In order for the XtraView billing to kick in, XtraView needs to be activated on the account, and if the decoders are disconnected and reconnected after some time, you will receive a 'waiting for communication' error. The two separate subscription fees will kick in if your XtraView network is broken for any reason on our systems.
However, we will conduct a full investigation, and provide you with feedback.
