MultiChoice is shutting down its DStv Mobile service in South Africa at the end of October.

The company is dropping its DStv DVB-H mobile pay-TV service with the outdated DStv Walka and DStv Drifta that will no longer work at the end of the month.

MultiChoice says when it launched DStv Mobile the technology was new but “over the last few years, technology has evolved as broadband access continues to grow. It’s not feasible to continue to maintain a separate land-based, dedicated network for this service alone when an even better service can be offered to our customers on DStv Now through the internet and WiFi”.

MultiChoice already started shutting down transmitters so existing DStv Mobile subscribers who have been paying R49 per month for the service are not guaranteed to still get it until the end of the month with MultiChoice offering them R500 Takealot coupons.

DStv Mobile subscribers are encouraged to dispose of Drifta and Walka devices at MultiChoice branches in Randburg, Durban and Cape Town or at DStv agencies where there are recycling bins.
