Rasa CEO Wendy Albert that the association viewed the latest increase as unconscionable, unjustified and unaffordable to many restaurants and hospitality businesses. She said that with SABC not broadcasting the Rugby World Cup, MultiChoice was being opportunistic in raising the prices of its business packages right before the event. MultiChoice said it had been forced to readjust its pricing and content offering for three of its DStv Business Play Packages as it had faced increased costs in the local currency versus the US dollar after it was required to renegotiate content rights.
