Another year of unprecedented change and uncertainty, another year of navigating new levels and unchartered territory. We did it, Mzansi - we've made it to the festive season. 

For our part, DStv has been proud to offer companionship during this challenging time. Placing our commitment to our customers front and centre, we helped bring the gym to your living room, the classroom to your kitchen and the cinema to your home. To keep you entertained while outside was closed, we bolstered our entertainment offering with the launch of permanent and pop-up channels. We also expanded our content offering to more customers through various Open Windows, and even enhanced our free service for non-DStv customers. 

And now, we are excited to walk the journey to the end of the year with you. Like you, we weren't prepared for what the past two years had in store, but we persevered in true Mzansi style and now, we're choosing to celebrate that steadfastness by embracing one of our favourite times of the year as South Africans - the festive season.

This year, DStv is encouraging you to Choose Joy this festive season. We're saying that, having survived the worst two years experienced in an entire generation, we owe it to ourselves to enjoy this festive season - no matter what this new world throws at us. 

That's why we're opting to Choose Joy. Joy allows us to develop more resilience and find more meaning and purpose in the midst of challenges. Joy even improves our performance at work, as well as the way we interact with others. 

It’s important to recharge in December so we can be at our best come 2022. We need to re-invigorate by choosing family time, quality time, getaway time, braai time, down time, me time. We need to Choose Joy.

DStv is committed to helping our customers Choose Joy this festive season by offering a jam-packed content slate filled with everything you need to match your mood. Whether you'll be Choosing Joy through DIY activities, discovering new recipes, exploring new places to visit or simply binge-watching your favourite shows - DStv has got you. 

With our Choose Joy campaign, DStv wants to help you collect the moments that fill your gees. Keep an eye on our Choose Joy webpage to learn more about new shows and movies to watch this festive season as well as all the self-service tips and add-on offerings you need to get the most out of your DStv subscription. 

Choose Joy this festive season. Kuzoba’mnandi!
