Why I traded DStv in for a horse.

So Nicole and I have done it...we've pulled the plug on DStv.

It's weird, because satellite TV has been part of our lives for as long as I can remember. But these days if we flick onto DStv twice a month it's a lot.

It's not for everyone and if you are a sports nut I get that you want to watch things in Supersport HD, but in our household we don't even know what channels Supersport is on. Our girls only watch animated movies and we only watch news channels. On my Apple TV there's Netflix, Sky News, ABC News and CBS News. For my girls there's PBS Kids and they have a whole lot of animated movies.

In fact, at the moment Nicole and I are watching all the episodes of Friends again and loving the show as much as we did 20 years ago. We're onto Season 3 and pissing ourselves laughing every night!

So, to DStv, thank you for the many good times, and if you ever change your subscription policy to being able to pay for the channels I watch, I'll be back. For now though I get much more enjoyment spending your R800 a month on my daughter's horse riding lessons.
