The all-new DStv.com offers a seamless user experience for customers.

Welcome to the new DStv website

DStv is proud to welcome you to the brand new DStv South Africa website.

The fresh new website offers a contemporary look and feel that beautifully represents the DStv brand, while seamlessly bringing the world of DStv together to deliver the perfect companion site for our customers.

All enhancements were made with the customer in mind:

  • More ways for customers to discover content: We’ve introduced Content Destination pages, to allow for collections of our best content to be featured for customers to explore. This includes the Highlights tab which helps customers find something new to watch on their package, on Catch Up, on the DStv app and Showmax, as well as Behind the Screens which offers exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes content you won’t find anywhere else.
     
  • Improved menu and easier way to navigate: Following customer journey audits conducted in 2020, we worked on a sleek and simplified menu that helps customers navigate through our digital ecosystem more easily. We've also made it easier for you to rent and stream BoxOffice movies directly from our homepage, and conveniently add Showmax to your DStv bill so you have less paperwork to worry about and so much more entertainment to enjoy.
     
  • Better performance:  A lot of focus has been placed on website performance as part of this enhancement, prioritising page speed and best practice for getting content to our customers faster and more efficiently, with better image processing for lower data requirements.
     
  • Mobile first:  With more than half of our customers accessing our websites from a mobile device, accessibility on mobile is a top priority to ensure that the site is even more mobile friendly.

More of what you love

In addition to the new features launched on dstv.com, we’ve also enhanced the environments our customers know and love. These include:

  • Local and International Content Hubs

This includes breaking news, must-watch lists, exclusive videos and behind-the-screens interviews.

  • School of Laughter hub

    The School of Laughter is the hub for the tiny humans in the DStv family. We’ve brought the School of Laughter to life even further on the new DStv.com website, making it easier for your kids to find fun activities to download, watch sneak peeks of their favourite shows or learn more about the world through exclusive videos created by their favourite channels.
