Multichoice SA & Fedhasa announce groundbreaking subscription discount deal for hospitality businesses

JOHANNESBURG, 5 DECEMBER 2022 – FEDHASA and MultiChoice SA have partnered to offer the beleaguered hospitality sector, which was greatly disadvantaged during the pandemic, affordable video entertainment for their guests.

The deal sees paid-up FEDHASA members benefiting from DStv Business subscription discounts depending on the type and number of active subscriptions in their account and the contract term they sign up for 12- to 24 months. The subscription-only bundle is for the DStv Business segment and targets selected businesses.

Says Rosemary Anderson, FEDHASA National Chair: “FEDHASA is delighted to have partnered with MultiChoice SA to deliver this important cost-saving benefit to our members. The hospitality sector was one of the most affected by Covid regulations and we are still clawing back our recovery as we begin our first peak summer season since the pandemic began.”

The special DStv Business subscription contract for FEDHASA members is an extension of their support for the hospitality sector, says Anderson.

“MultiChoice SA is pleased to have joined forces with FEDHASA to support the hospitality industry, considering the severe impact to these businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. As DStv Business we pride ourselves on putting our customers first and this initiative allows us to play a part in revival of the industry.” said Rochelle Knock; Executive Head of Product and Base Management at MultiChoice South Africa

“Annual savings of R 20,520.00 can be expected on the 12-month Stay Basic plan option for FEDHASA members signing up with a 100-bedroom hotel. Savings like that offered by Multichoice SA ensure our sector is empowered to deliver on our hospitality promise to guests, but also help with a swifter recovery by saving us fixed costs.

“The cost of providing guest entertainment is significant so these savings really do go a long way to helping our business get back on their feet and form a key part of our FEDHASA 2.0 strategy around coaching, collaboration and commercialisation,” Anderson adds.



Founded in 1949, a restructured and transformed FEDHASA (Federated Hospitality Association of South Africa) is recognised by Government as the official representative of the hospitality industry of South Africa. With industry support, FEDHASA remains the umbrella association for hotels, restaurants, conference centres, caterers, self-catering accommodation, home hosting establishments (B&Bs and guest houses), clubs, taverns, shebeens, suppliers and trainers, consultants and service providers to the hospitality industry.
