DStv has officially launched an online version of its popular BoxOffice movie rental service
, available to anyone living in South Africa.
BoxOffice Online offers movie fans a wide selection of great new releases and popular classics that customers can rent and stream directly from the BoxOffice website
, or rent and download via the DStv Desktop Player app – which is available to download here
No DStv subscription is required to access the service. All customers need to do is sign up for a BoxOffice Account, which will allow them to use any of the flexible payment methods available to rent and watch movies online or via the DStv Desktop Player.
BoxOffice Online works in a similar fashion to the service on PVRs, giving customers a selection of movies that they can rent and watch as many times as they like for a 48 hours period. Once the rental period is up, the movie simply expires, meaning no returns and no late fees.
DStv BoxOffce Online currently offers a wide variety of movies available to rent, some of which are also available for rent on PVRs. As the service grows, customers can expect the catalogue to expand as new movies are added each week.
Rental prices range from R30 for New Releases to R10 for Classics.
Downloads via the DStv Desktop Player and streaming movies on the BoxOffice website are both compatible with most PCs and MACs. It is, however, recommended that customers check that their systems meet the minimum system requirements for the service.
BoxOffice Online is also open to all Internet Service Providers and, while not required, it is strongly recommended that customers access BoxOffice Online from a Wi-Fi network connected to an uncapped ADSL line to avoid high data bills from their network providers.
