MultiChoice announces DStv streaming service

1 Mins read

MultiChoice on Wednesday revealed bits of its much-anticipated “DStv dishless” streaming service.

The company announced that DStv subscribers will be able to get access to its pay-TV service without the use of a mounted satellite dish, although only through its DStv app and access costing exactly the same as its existing tv satellite service.

For close to a year, the company has teased on and on that it’s working on a “dishless” version of DStv as a video streaming version that would make it possible for subscribers to get access to the same service as customers using a wall-mounted satellite dish.

MultiChoice explained that the DStv app and its DStv dishless service will bring the same DStv content and channels as the existing service, that users can then watch through any screen of their choice via Smart TV, browser, mobile phone or gaming console with a consistent high-speed data connection.

“DStv residential packages are all available, with the full set of live channels and Catch Up shows. Streaming customers will be able to watch their favourite shows on Catch Up on four devices, with a maximum of two concurrent streams”

said the company.

MultiChoice also interestingly noted that they will soon be partnering with telecommunications and internet service providers to offer bundled data packages in order to give DStv subscribers, using DStv streaming access, uncapped data along with whichever DStv streaming bouquet they are subscribed to for instance DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus or DStv Compact.

At the moment, the company hasn’t announced when its dishless version will become available for sale and sign-up but be sure that the streaming version will cost exactly the same and will only work and stream through the DStv app.
