The DStv Compact package offers a few premium DStv channels for a relatively lower price, making it a great option for those on a budget. The compact bouquet offers up to a total of 159 channels.
DStv Compact Bouquet Price
As the compact package is meant to be in the midrange, you get it for USD 28 per month. This is, in all fairness, the entry package for DStv. The lower priced access is there merely for a technicality as it offers little content. This is not the case with Compact. Here you get more channels and value for your dollar.
