Lack of service delivery - Black Friday deal

DSTV advertised the Black Friday price lock on the explora.

I took up this deal on 23.11.18 and to date (11.01.19), I have not received my unit.

The call centre agents all seem extremely confused when informing the customer about their account.

The most information one will get from an agent is that they will escalate the matter.

It takes them 2 months to load an order.

I have made numerous calls to DSTV to follow up on my order as they lack the decency of making contact with the client and keeping them updated on the status of their order.

Strong language

I want to lodge a complaint! more and more shows on dstv have bad language doesnt matter what the shows air (during family time) so we have set the language to family however once the show goes on catch up there is no option to change the language to family after all the money we pay for the explorer and now we dont even have the option to clean entertainment its bad enough all the music channels are not properly edited its disgusting how we have come to accept the lousy language in shows and music what are we teaching our kids you cant produce anything fun exciting without using foul language or nudity. Im disgusted and tempted to cancel our subscription but that does not slove the problem there so many homes violeted because the parents are not paying attention to what the kids are watching or listening to... #cleanfun #cleanentertainment #cleancontent #righttochoose #righttospeak #dstv #multichoice #mzanzimagic #1magic #mtv #trace

Unwarranted Disconnection

Reference No #9462750 & No #9469880

I was disconnected on the 28/11/2017 even though my account is up to date. I have since send emails complaining to no avail. The only thing Ive recieved its the automated response that my issue will be attended to. Today, 01/12/2018 I decided to go live chat with one of their customer relations agents & he informed me that my issue has been escalated to their fraud dept. Why fraud dept I dont understand, if somebody within their ranks had committed fraud why should I be disconnected bcs I make sure I pay my subscription every month.
customers.
My account is due now & if i dont pay I'll be charged reconnection fee. I've since lost three days of enjoying something that I paid for. To be honest, if it wasnt for local soccer, I would have cancelled my subscription long time ago. I've never had to interact with such an arrogant orgnisation like this before & Im shocked in the manner they treat their

DSTV Multichoice unlawfull deducted money

Attached email send to Multichoice

Hi

Thanks for your ongoing feedback since this morning :

What I do not understand : -

The 2nd October 2017 I was told the payment would get reversed and would take between 7 – 10 days – subscription changed to monthly.

The evening of the 4th October I received a phone call telling me the refund according to the Finance department will take 90 days and I pay my subscription on a monthly basis in meanwhile.

After my complaint on hello Peter –
On the 5th October 2015 –
First phone call from Sipho requesting certain detail from me that I forwarded – he also said refund will take 7 – 10 days.

The rest of day communications between me and Lebogang indicated that refund will be processed and will take 7 – 14 days.

At 14H51 I received a phone call from Lebogang informing me that manager finance say the refund will take 90 days.

I ask her to speak to manager – she would get him to phone me ASAP. At 15h50 no one called me back.

According to me DSTV took my money without authorization- and I inform them immediately about the wrong deduction.
It leave me with no choice to report this case to Brooklyn Police Station.

Already reported it to my credit card fraud department.

Will post my reply on Hello Peter with my case no.

It will then also leave me with no choice to cancel my DSTV subscription with immediate effect and cut of date for viewing will be 28th October 2017.

Any further queries reply via email please.

Regards

Debit order amount

Good day

I have been waiting for two days for someone from DSTV's accounts department to get back to me. I have been a debit order client for more than 15 years. In July, I decided to take up the offer of the price lock PVR on the premium package plus the North Indian bouquet as an add on. I was on the compact package plus North Indian Bouquet till July. Since then, I have had a different figure debited form my account for the past 3 months and no one can explain why.
If it is a price lock it should be a fixed figure!
I am not impressed and more frustrated with no one calling me back. I keep calling and being told that it was escalated. Escalated to where?

Debit order figure:
1/06/2017 R614
1/07/2017 R614
Then changed to the Pricelock PVR:
31/07/2017 R798.89
30/08/2017 R681,86
1/09/2017 R69.99
30/09/2017 R1952,20

dstv account

My Debit Order for my DSTV premium account always use to run on the 1st of every month. On the 22.04.2017 I contacted the Call Centre to find out if I can change my Debit Order date to the 25.04.2017 and the consultant advised that it was too late for the debit order date to be changed of which I understood and was informed that the debit order date was changed and should be running from 25.05.2017 which I once again fully understood. On the.04.05.2017 a debit my account was debited with an amount of R727.20. On the 25.05.2017 my account was debited with an amount of R909.00 of which was correct and then on the 26.06.2017 my account was once again debited with an amount of R909.00 which was correct. On the 25.07.2017 the shit started an amount of R77.83 which debited form my account I did not not previously contacted DSTV as I was ok with everything. I contacted DSTV Call Centre the apes could not assist me I used so much airtime requesting to get a manager on the phone to assist me but all failed. I had to drive from Mitchells Plain to Goodwood which cost me petrol to have the account sorted. Of which in the same week my account was debited with R110 as well as a R200 which incured more bank charges on my bank account and who is refunding me no one. I had to extra pay a R425.00 on the 29.07.2017 when I arrived at the Goodwood office of which I cancelled my insurance on both decoders and I was handed a cancellation form from the consultant which I have in my possession and she informed me that an amount of R874.00 will be new DSTV monthly amount for the premium package. On the 22.08.2017 I received an sms on my cellphone informing that an amount of R1 117.00 will be debited from my bank account on the 25.08.2017. I contacted the call centre on even date and informed the consultant who informed me that I must drive from Mitchells Plain to Goodwood to sort out my account as well as the cancellation of the insurance of the DSTV insurance. Imigane what a damn nerve to tell me that over the phone. I informed him he had a bladdy nerve to tell me such things instead of assisting. I will reverse the debit order as soon as it is debited from my account. Your service sucks BIG TIME.
