Multichoice's most popular channels on the DSTV platform will now be available to live stream will now be available on Showmax. The company has announced. This is a live testing experiment that Showmax is trying out, and it will enable those who don't have access to the two DSTV channels to able to watch them 24/7.
"We're always looking at ways of making the Showmax experience better for our customers," says MultiChoice Group CEO for General Entertainment and Connected Video, Yolisa Phahle. "During last year's lockdown, we gave subscribers access to live news channels. Now, following this month's Presidential address, South Africans will continue to spend more time at home, and so, once again, we'd like to make sure our customers have something extra."
The Mzansi Magic live stream will be available exclusively in South Africa while kykNET will also be available in countries like Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The live streams will be available on all Showmax plans including Showmax, Showmax mobile, Showmax Pro and Showmax Pro mobile. Showmax and Showmax Pro – which includes live sport from SuperSport including all Premier League, Serie A and La Liga matches – are available as standalone streaming services to anyone with an internet connection and the right device, such as phones, tablets, smart TVs and laptops, from only R49 per month.
Showmax's mobile plans give full access to all the content on Showmax or Showmax Pro for half the price, and the Showmax mobile app includes data-saving settings that limit data usage to less than 100MB per hour. The Mzansi Magic and kykNET pop-up live streams will be available until 31 March 2021.
