You access the content for free using your own data, normal you would pay to access the content and also use your data. So Dstv is supposed to give us both free content and data? Ehhh, some people are ungrateful. This is a very good offer for those that have data or access to free Wifi to now and then log in and see the score or even watch the full game if you can afford to. I think those who wont be having access to a TV during the game because of whatever reasons will gladly accept this opportunity.

Free ain't got no job in a business world, this must be a well documented strategy to actually reach certain amount of numbers with our hard earned peanuts

they must stop misleading people, once you include internet connection it is no longer for free, to stream for more than an hour especially a football match where the quality has to be slightly higher than the lowest quality you can go so you can see whos passing to who takes about a gig and that's just about average quality, do you know how much a gig costs in SA is about R100, compact is R385 a month, you get to watch a lot of games, series and all the unecessary shiidii , and you wanna tell us streaming is free? GTFOH please
