MultiChoice is expanding its DStv Now streaming service to more subscribers, it said on Friday.
Until now, DStv Now has only been available to DStv Premium customers with an active personal video recorder (PVR) decoder.
However, the service has now been made available to all DStv Premium subscribers, irrespective of whether they have a PVR.
DStv Now, which offers standard-definition online streams of more than 60 live DStv channels, as well as access to the Catch Up video-on-demand service, can be viewed from smartphones, tablets (Android and iOS) and computers using a Web browser.
The library includes the M-Net Movie Collection, which offers a thousand movies that are updated weekly, MultiChoice said in a statement.
The streamed channels include all of SuperSport, with DStv Now proving a popular way for consumers to catch a game when they’re away from their TV (such as Friday morning rugby games).
To access the service, subscribers need to to register for a Connect ID on DStv’s website. — (c) 2017 NewsCentral Media
