The Competition Commission investigated a long-standing practice used across the media industry which DStv Media Sales followed.
The Competition Commission has now concluded its investigation and found that this practice does indeed contravene the Competition Act. DStv Media Sales cooperated with the Competition Commission in its investigation and has accepted responsibility for being party to this industry practice.
The company has agreed to pay a penalty which includes cash and a package of remedies supporting BBBEE agencies.
The company has already made the required changes to this industry wide practice.
