The DSTV Porn Saga

DSTV Multichoice has apparently been inundated with requests for porn channels over the last few months, to the extent that they are actually looking at getting with the times by making this available as a pay per view option…but…

You may have heard a bit about this lately. DSTV Multichoice are looking at making porn channels available as a pay per view option, naturally… but you may have also heard about the huge amount of bullshit surrounding the whole saga to the extent that it is getting just a little bit ridiculous now. Recently DSTV decided that if they were going to do this, then perhaps it would be a good idea to get a general feeling about it from the public first… ja bad idea, and quite honestly an epic fail since they are probably wishing they never brought the whole topic up. What they should have just done is, made it available, if you want to watch it, you pay for it, thats it, simples… but no, they had to go and open a massive can of worms, did they not realise that there was going to be a great divide as to who wants it and who doesn't?

Lets be a little realistic and honest about the whole thing, Piet and Sarie are about 50 years old, Piet schmaaks checking the Rugby on Supersport on a Saturday and Sarie schmaaks checking her "whatever" programs and a kiff movie while they stay at home on a Saturday night. They receive an email or letter from DSTV advising that they want to know how everyone feels about having porn channels available but not "freely" available… Sarie immediately gets on her high horse throwing the Bible at it, stating that it is absolute filth and the demise of the human race yada yada yada… because it will be an awesome topic to display her "values" and uphold her status within her Wednesday goss… ur um..book club. Piet just agrees cause not a chance is he gonna be looked upon as the spawn of Satan by Sarie, she may very well deprive the poor bastard of the little bit of action he does get these days. So off goes their petition signed, Sarie and Piet… even though Piet is already skeeming in his mind about how he's gonna manage to hide the DSTV bill every month with the extra Pay Per View costs on it :)… Now if DSTV just went and did it, Sarie might be scrolling through the onscreen guide and notice a couple channels with titles such as "Gangbangs of New York"  or "Riding Miss Daisy" or something a little more obvious.. but the most she is gonna do is give a little "Sies!" and flick passed it. She doesn't care for it and it obviously doesn't interest her, let alone it popping up with a PIN request just incase she accidently did "tap the button" on one of the channels, because at the end of the day, not a fuck are they gonna cancel their subscription, Piet wont be able to watch his Rugby and Sarie won't be able to watch her programs, and we all no what lies on the other side of No DSTV land… yes, you guessed it… SABC… well, no comment.

The minute you give any of these super conservative bunch a chance at a say, they will tear it to shreds and cause such a big ndaba about it. 

In my opinion DSTV should get with the times and stop acting like it lives in the apartheid era where TV was highly censored, give people the freedom to choose what they want to watch and if they don't want to watch it then they don't watch it. There is actually a full on campaign called "Helping Hand" who are rallying support to stop this from happening because they feel that it will corrupt South African society and cause more sexual abuse amongst the population… have these people just stepped off the Ark? Has anyone cared to let them know that we have had this amazing thing for sometime now called "The Internet", where you don't even have to pay for a dose of smut, you just have to type three letters into Google and voila! and better still its in endless supply. It makes me wonder why these idiots haven't created a huge campaign to block access to porn sites on the net in SA, which I'm sure will cause an outbreak of full scale riots because of it… I'll tell you why, because they know they can't stop that, its way too big, the only reason why they are jumping around about it now, is because DSTV were stupid enough to let anybody voice their opinions about it. I bet you even ol' Piet checks out a few sites when Sarie puts her green face mask on and heads to bed leaving him unfulfilled, cause we all know he schmaaks a piece of that action :)

All of you with Sky will know, there's loads of porn channels available, some of the free soft porn ones are actually quite hilarious to watch for 5mins like Babestation etc. with the chicks on the phones pulling weird faces and trying to make it look like they actually enjoying themselves talking on the phone, I just can't help but laugh because it is so frickin cheesy its unbelievable. At the end of the day, millions of people have Sky and they have the freedom to choose what the want to watch, that's the way it is. How often do you venture into the high numbered channels where all the pay per view porn is… hardly ever I imagine, and most of the time its by accident cause there's bugger all on and you've gone through the entire list already.

Would you believe 41 000 very sad people have actually voted against having these channels on DSTV… very very sad :)

Where's the multichoice in Multichoice? :)

P.S. For anyone wanting to look at blocking porn via ISP's and DSTV, please go to Google and search for "RedTube" :)

What do you reckon? Comment at will…
