Join the celebration

It’s been 35 years since M-Net began in 1985, and 25 years since the birth of the Multichoice Group – that’s decades of investing in leading-edge content and technology, to get to where we are today: taking African stories to the world and bringing the best of what’s happening on the international stage back home.

Today’s story – written by MultiChoice and inspired by you – is DStv’s biggest breakthrough moment in 10 years. And it’s set to win new hearts and stake new claims across all its main markets in Africa.

It’s a story of content creation and of putting all your entertainment in one place - bringing you better value, more choice, easier access, and even more captivating entertainment than before.

We’ve got sports announcements, product launches, new services and even more content coming your way. MultiChoice Group CEO Calvo Mawela discusses these exciting developments with CNN’s Richard Quest. 

World-class innovation

Did you know that DStv was one of the first satellite platforms launched outside the United States with a sizable network and complexity rivalling the best in the world? Since then, the platform has gone on to completely revolutionise television viewing with world-first innovations such as the Dual View decoder in 2003 and the PVR in 2005.

Now we’re leading the way once again by introducing a new world of video entertainment innovation. Here are the exciting developments DStv customers can look forward to:

Customer-centricity, always

Continuing in the spirit of innovation, we’re finding new ways to show our customers how much we value you, finding unique ways to pay and giving you more choice in what you watch.

Take a look:

Africa’s Most-Loved Storyteller

The MultiChoice Group believes in telling African stories that touch lives, celebrate our continent and have the happy consequence of building great futures.

Through our first-class channel suppliers, DStv delivers about 4 000 hours of local and international movies, telenovelas and series – with over R6.2 billion invested in original African productions in a year.

We also train African directors, cameramen and crew, through various programmes, across the continent.

Bringing the best of the world home

Exciting channel launches

More of the best live sport

As we know, every sport tells its own story – the beginning, middle and end. It has its own cast of intriguing characters, its stars, its directors, its heartbreaks, its victories, its endeavours, and its suspense.

It’s possibly the most immediate form of real-life drama we’ll ever enjoy and although it follows a script, to an extent, no one ever knows how it will end. Until it does and the tape breaks or the whistle blows, we’re all left gasping.

When sport was brought to a halt earlier this year, we realised how much we missed it. The good news is that the next 18 months will be some of the greatest yet – all on the World of Champions.

Chasing the Sun

The Springboks’ unforgettable win at the 2019 Rugby World Cup was a moment South Africans won’t soon forget. Now SuperSport and M-Net are retelling the story with special never-before-seen footage in a brand-new, six-part documentary series titled Chasing the Sun.
