Netflix trolls DStv… but, does it work?
This week, Rice critiqued an ad in which Netflix trolls DStv.
DStv - facing an existential threat from Netflix and other streaming services – has been vocal about the “unfair advantage” these services have with regards to regulations.
Now Netflix has unleashed its new campaign (featuring comedian Jason Golliath as a “pay TV installation technician” for Netflix) making fun of DStv’s outdated installation procedure.

Rice did not like the advert and gave it a “zero”.
