DStv Considering A Streaming-Only Option In South Africa

Multichoice is deliberating on launching a streaming-only version of DStv which will not be offered through satellite subscriptions but exclusively over broadband connections.

Multichoice CEO, Mark Rayner, announced at a press conference that the streaming-only version of DStv was on and only a question was when.

Rayner points to the fact that broadcasters globally were launching online-only options with no guarantees that consumers wanted to subscribe to limited channel options or wanted a full bouquet of channels from one provider.

Multichoice's offering already includes a streaming service through DStv Now with access to over 60 live standard definition channels and Catch Up video-on-demand content.
