News 02 December 2020

With DStv’s highly anticipated new offering, customers can enjoy all the benefits of their chosen DStv package – with no dish installation!

Want to get DStv but don't need a decoder or satellite connection right now? No problem! You can sign up for DStv Streaming.

DStv Streaming offers customers the opportunity to subscribe to DStv and watch all their favourite channels and Catch Up content via the DStv app (previously known as DStv Now) – without a decoder or satellite connection!

New and existing customers can conveniently access content on their preferred smart device (mobile, tablet, gaming console or Smart TV) which should be linked to a consistent, high-speed Internet connection for an optimum viewing experience.

Customers can access all the best in cutting-edge series, reality shows, documentaries, breaking news, live sport and a myriad of educational content anytime, anywhere.

Until recently, customers could only subscribe to DStv through a satellite connection, which meant that customers needed a decoder to access DStv’s content.

DStv Streaming allows customers to choose any one of the DStv residential packages, giving them the flexibility to opt for content that fits their interests and budget. The current packages available for streaming are DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus, DStv Compact, DStv Family, DStv Access and DStv EasyView. Streaming customers can also watch their favourite shows on Catch Up on up to four devices with a maximum of two concurrent streams.

“We are led by our customers’ evolving viewing habits and how and when they choose to access our content. The option to use the Internet to consume content speaks to how DStv continues to diversify its offerings with a clear intention to drive value and convenience for our customers,” says Nyiko Shiburi, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa.

Once signed up on, customers can download and log into the DStv app to instantly enjoy all the benefits of their chosen DStv package – anytime, anywhere! Current DStv customers on select packages retain the access to DStv’s streaming service that they have long enjoyed as a value-added service.
