DSTv Compact Vs GoTv Supa: Which One Should You Choose?

So which of the two should you go for? A closer look at the two packages reveal that the packages are almost the same, the only major difference being that the DSTV Compact gives you more sports and that you access all the major sporting events from football to athletics. So if you are a fun of sport and more so the English Premier league, then go for Dstv Compact. If you generally do not enjoy sports, then your best bet will be the GOtv Supa package.

The other thing you may want to consider is the price, DSTv Compact currently goes for Ksh 3000.00. But you will first have to buy a dish and a decoder, the cheapest going goes about Ksh. 2500.00.

The Gotv Supa package goes for Ksh. 1999.00, while the cost of a decoder and antenna are way much cheaper. The biggest issue I always have with Gotv is the signal especially in urban areas with tall building obstruction the signal mast and in rural areas where masts are very far away.

DSTv Compact Vs GoTv Supa, which one would you go for? Share your thoughts below.
