As of today, entertainment fans can subscribe to DStv and watch all their favourite content via the DStv app without the need for a decoder or satellite connection. For many DStv users, it means the end of the almost ubiquitous white dish plastered to a wall.
Announced earlier this year during DStv’s showcase, DStv streaming allows for existing and new customers to conveniently access content on their preferred device (mobile, tablet, gaming console or Smart TV) which should be linked to a consistent, high-speed internet connection for an optimum viewing experience.
Until recently, customers could only subscribe to DStv through a satellite connection, which meant customers needed a decoder to access DStv’s content.
DStv notes its streaming services allows customers to choose any one of the DStv residential packages, giving them the flexibility to opt for content that fits their interests and budget. The current packages available for streaming are: DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus, DStv Compact, DStv Family, DStv Access and DStv EasyView. Streaming customers can also watch their favourite shows on Catch Up on four devices, with a maximum of two concurrent streams.
“We are led by our customers’ evolving viewing habits and how and when they choose to access our content. The option to use the internet to consume content speaks to how DStv continues to diversify its offerings with a clear intention to drive value and convenience for our customers,” says Nyiko Shiburi, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa.
Once signed up on https://www.dstv.co.za/get-dstv-products/dstv-packages/, customers can download and log into the DStv app to instantly enjoy all of the benefits of their chosen DStv package. Current DStv customers on select packages retain the access to DStv’s streaming service they have long enjoyed as a value-added service.
