DStv South Africa Launches Standalone Streaming Service - Reports
According to industry reports, DStv South Africa has now launched the long-talked-about standalone streaming platform that allows subscribers to access "the full DStv experience" without needing a satellite connection.
Recall that earlier in the year, Broadcast Media Africa and other industry news media platform had stories about the proposal from DStv to let subscribers access all DStv content on all internet-enabled devices without requiring satellite connection, and now reports are confirming that DStv in South Africa has launched the service.
Press report from DStv says that "by signing up for a DStv package from today, subscribers will be able to select whether they want a decoder and satellite installation or a streaming-only package. They can then watch DStv anywhere and at any time on their iOS device, Android, Chromecast, Apple TV, or Smart TV."
According to the reporting, streaming customers can also watch their favourite shows on Catch Up on four devices, with a maximum of two concurrent streams.
Nyiko Shiburi, Chief Executive of MultiChoice, said that "We are led by our customers' evolving viewing habits and how and when they choose to access our content".
