Making DStv Payments

To make DStv payments, subscribers have the option to use a number of methods.

Clearing Errors

DStv Self-care service

One can use the DStv self-care website to clear errors on their decoder. The site will ask for the Smartcard number. Once that is supplied one then has to specify the error showing on their TV and clear the error code.

Common errors that can be cleared using this method are: E16, E32, E30.

People are usually bothered by these errors when they make payment but their decoder doesn't clear the error.

Another method to use if one cannot connect to the DStv website is to just call the Multichoice call center on the following numbers: +263 4 32600, 0774 168 466, 0712 267 770.

One can also just use the Multichoice Zimbabwe Facebook page inbox. Multichoice responds very quickly to such messages.

Price Increases & Reductions

Every year, around April, Multichoice increases the prices of the service by between 0.5% and 7%. This usually attracts backlash from subscribers as DStv is the only option aside from the State broadcaster, Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation, and internet options which are expensive.

In October 2016 DStv prices were not increased. Instead, the company reduced prices by between 11% and 21% along with a content upgrade on all DStv packages.[1]
