DStv Access comes right after DStv Lite, and it used to be the base package. It is the introductory offer, welcoming you to the world of DStv. You get just a few useful channels, and a little bit more. Just like any other bouquet, the channels on offer range from news to entertainment and sporting.
In terms of the USD, the Access Package costs $11. The EcoCash / ZIPIT price is much variable, and you have to confirm that before you pay. You can check RTGS Price and pay for DStv Access online using EcoCash here. Otherwise, if you have a VISA card go on and do it on their website.

Sports channels in DStv Access Zimbabwe
Sport is where you really feel that this is a basic package. You have access to very limited live sports content. You are basically paying for access to highlights that come quite late. Something is better than nothing, but it’s really bad. If you are into Sport, you are better off looking at the compact subscription or better.
