DStv gives back to TV lovers for Valentines’ Day


Content lovers in a relationship with DStv shows and movies felt the love all Valentines’ Day as DStv surprised and delighted TV fans with special gifts.

It’s the day to celebrate the ones you love - and for us at DStv, that’s our content lovers.

All February long, we’ve been asking TV viewers to tell us which DStv show they’re in a relationship with and if they use #UpdateYourStatus, they could win R10 000 in cold hard cash.

We received thousands of responses throughout the month with content lovers giving us the dirty truth about their emotional investment in the great local and international shows available on DStv. From on-again off-again relationships with long-standing show like Grey’s Anatomy, to polyamorous relationships with content across various genres, TV lovers showed us why they love DStv and the content we bring to their screens.

After receiving an outpour of responses from viewers all over South Africa all month long, we decided to give a little something back. On Friday 14 February – also known as Valentines’ Day – we engaged directly with the fans who’d been showing our shows love. We hand-picked the fans that showed the most love for their shows and slid into their DMs – to surprise them with vouchers!

But it doesn’t stop there. The journey to find our R10 000 winner continues!

Keep using #updateyourstatus all February long and stay in line to win the R10 000! The winner will be announced 29 February.
