DStv’s Graeme Cumming on the future of TV

Graeme Cumming

In this TechCentral podcast episode, Duncan McLeod chats to the head of digital media at MultiChoice, Graeme Cumming, about the future of television in South Africa.
It’s a fascinating and wide-ranging discussion about how the TV landscape is changing not only in South Africa but worldwide and how MultiChoice, which owns DStv, is responding to those changes.
The conversation looks at the future development plans for DStv Now, MultiChoice’s Internet streaming product, and how the company plans to compete in a rapidly evolving environment.
Is streaming the future of television, or is traditional broadcasting here to stay? And outside of live sports, is linear television broadcasting dying?
What is MultiChoice doing in this space? What does the road map for DStv Now look like? And how different is the business model of streaming to traditional television? Don’t miss it!

When you switch DSTV you will see the same repeat from yesteryear! People its all a con job! How many shows have you seen on repeat. They are like the ANC could care less about the dummies “gimme the cash”
