And that’s basically all you need to know about the DStv Premium vs the DStv Compact Plus packages.

For ₦6,750 less, you lose about 17 channels, which to me, is still pretty reasonable, especially if you’re not a sports fan.

So, give this post a thumbs up by sharing it if you find it helpful, and as always, I’ll see y’all tomorrow, #peace out.
