StarSat HD TV
What is StarSat?
StarSat is the brand that replaced TopTV, and was officially launched on 31 October 2013. The new packages and channels were available from 1 December 2013. The new StarSat decoder is fully HD. StarSat is a satellite TV network competing with Multichoice DStv in the domestic satellite TV market.
StarSat was originally expected to provide a low cost alternative to DStv and create genuine competition. However lacking the ability to broadcast live South African soccer and rugby has proved a major disadvantage to TopTV. Also since DSTV subsequently provided a range of low cost bouquets, the R99 per month bouquet of TopTV is no longer price competitive.
StarSat is a digital satellite TV brand, operating in the South African market, offering a multitude of channels available in simple package choices for the subscriber.
The channels include movies, news, series, kids programmes, music, gospel, documentaries, sport, lifestyle, telenovelas, and other. The packages are priced to give the subscriber good viewing value, and to make digital TV available to everyone.

The decision of StarSat to not allow their accredited installer network to sell and supply the StarSat decoder, lost StarSat many subscribers, because the only product which the StarSat accredited installer could then sell his customer was DStv.
