Shortly after announcing the new Explora during the 2020 DStv Showcase media presentation on Wednesday, MultiChoice Group announced the launch of a DStv Streama set-top box which allows subscribers to view DStv content and also access streaming services without a satellite dish.
The DStv Streama box simply relies on a stable Internet connection and then connects to your TV through an HDMI cable. The streaming box offers a 4K picture resolution, which can be displayed by a 4k-ready TV set obviously.
“The DStv Streama offers all of the best content customers have come to enjoy, including an array of sport, entertainment, news and kids’ content, with the selection of applications such as Showmax and YouTube, it presents all your viewing options in one place”said the company.
Now, to access this service, DStv customers will need service logins to use the Streama box, but no active subscription will be required. Huh! Sounds too good to be true! The company also added that the price and launch date of the DStv Streama will be announced in due course.
