We have previously written an article answering the question what happens if you don’t pay your DSTV on time.

The question now is, what’s the reconnection penalty on DSTV?
DSTV Late Payment Fee
The DSTV reconnection fee in South Africa is R50. You also need to pay your usual monthly subscription amount. Once you have paid those amounts, service will be restored to your home or office.
How long does it take for service to be restored?
After you have paid the required amounts, how long does it take for service to be restored? That’s a question that many people have been asking. In most cases, reconnection is after a few minutes.
DSTV says you need to wait at least 15 minutes and service will be restored. If you wish to hasten things up, you can get in touch with the company to tell them that you have made your payment. They will instantly restore your service.
Who needs to pay the DSTV reconnection fee
That’s the DSTV reconnection fee. But who needs to pay it? The late payment fee becomes applicable if you have been late in paying your DSTV subscription and if your service has been disconnected. But does this fee apply in every country?
The DSTV reconnection fee appears to be only applicable in South Africa. In Zimbabwe and other countries, there doesn’t appear to be any such fee. In those countries, if you fail to pay, your account will simply be disconnected. From there, you will need to pay your monthly subscription and your account will be restored.
