DStv To Temporarily Avail Its Channels Online For Lower-Tier Subscribers

In an effort to drive the uptake of its DStv Now service, MultiChoice has announced that it is making all its DStv channels available online from Friday to Sunday this week.

The TV channels, which are currently exclusively available to DStv Premium or higher-tiered subscribers, will this weekend be made accessible to all DStv Compact, DStv Compact Plus, DStv Access and DStv Family subscribers.

DStv’s EasyView subscribers are not included in the limited promotion that will be happening over three days from 13 March.

In order to watch the DStv channels they desire, subscribers must have access to the internet to live-stream the channels on the DStv Now site or app.

MultiChoice plans to introduce a streaming version of its DStv service that is similar to DStv Now. The new “dishless DStv version” is expected to launch soon. 

The DStv Now Open Weekend will serve as MultiChoice’s first public test for 2020 to see whether its servers can handle the massive influx of multiple DStv subscribers logging in and using the streaming platform to consume a large number of concurrent live streams. 

In 2019 the service, unfortunately, crashed during the final season of Game of Thrones and during some of the Rugby World Cup matches. 

This weekend’s DStv Now all-access promotion means that all DStv subscribers will be able to enjoy an unlimited serving of exclusive entertainment, news, documentary and sports content that is usually exclusively for DStv Premium subscribers who pay for premium access.
