JOHANNESBURG - Multichoice has seen a surge in subscribers over the past year
The pay-television operator, which owns DStv and SuperSport, puts this down to people spending more time at home.
Multichoice says it added 1.4-million household subscriptions, which lifted its subscriber reach to 20.9-million households, for the year ended March 2021.
This represents a two-percent acceleration in year-on growth to seven-percent.
The group also showed a four-percent increase in revenue to R53-billion.
The company says there is still pressure at the top end of the market, especially the DStv Premium base but it achieved good growth in the mass-market segment.
