My beef with DSTV is not in the content, but with the delivery of it. Month after month, the same problems are experienced, and there has been no resolution of them nor has there been any improvement in delivery. Here are some examples; Some time ago, I recorded the Hekkie Budler boxing match using the pre-set recording facility. I subsequently watched the fight, but the recordingstopped in round 8 of a 12 round fight. (Did no one at DSTV see this coming?) Some days later I scrolled through to what was called 'Basketball', and there was the end of the Hekkie Budler fight! Is this delivery?Pre-recorded programmes frequently stop before the end of theprogramme. Why is this still happening?Why does the sound volumeof advertisements still increase so much? This has been reported before, don't they care? It has become normal in the South African advertising world for non-English home speakers to be used in continuity and advertising content, and DSTV has bought fully into that, is it non-pc to say I don't like it? Another point: Why is the programme schedule shown in the upcoming programme field so lacking in information. There are many repeats, I don't mind that, but why do these repeats not indicate which number of a series the forthcoming event is? - No DSTV, sorry, you're just not cracking it, and that's a pretty bad AYOBA for you!
Good experience! now that's Ayoba
