    DSTV subscription for multiple apartments in the same building

    Hi all,

    As some of you know I have 5 rental apartments in the same building all occupied. One of my tenants asked me to set up a DSTV subscription for them and I was wondering what the best solution is given my business situation.

    I have contacted the multichoice call centre a couple of times for advise and have had no luck, everyone that I speak to seems to have brain damage.

    I would prefer to have debit orders run off my company's bank account and make this a business expense, is this possible or will I have to subscribe in my personal name? I see there is a 'dpp' option for R799/month including the Explorer PVR with the option to extend to another apartment for an extra R75/month, but this seems to be only available to personal accounts and not businesses.

    How do hotels and guest houses solve this issue? Anyone have any experience in this matter?

    Thanks

    Why not ask the tenant to do it himself at his cost?

    The business package is very limited.

    Yes corporate package is very limited, and beside, the infrastructure in the complex could not support a corporate network so had to sign up for a normal DSTV premium package in my own name and just bill the tenant and is working out just fine.
