VOD Platform, Showmax, May Be Absorbed Into DStv - Industry Sources

According to MyBroadband (a South Africa's industry news outfit), pay-TV giant Multichoice is currently in the process of "integrating" Showmax (it's hitherto standalone VOD platform) with DStv.

Quoting other industry sources, MyBroadband has reported that Multichoice is looking to make video services from Showmax available on DStv's digital platforms, with seamless content sharing between the two platforms, as well as the possibilities of consumers needing only one subscription in order to access content on both the DStv and Showmax platforms

Industry watchers are also predicting the eventual possible merger of both platforms.

BMA will be watching this space closely.
