DStv Now Increases Channels To More Than 60 And Improves Self-service


MultiChoice’s TV-on-the-go service DStv Now, the app that gives you sport, movies, series and so much more, added more channels to its already packed line-up of award winning channels.

The following 17 channels have been added, bringing the total number of channels on DStv Now to over 60: E! Entertainment, VUZU Amp, VUZU, Fox Entertainment, BET, M-Net City, NatGeo, Nat Geo Wild, Mzanzi Wethu, Mzansi Bioscope, kykNET Nou!, SuperSport 7, SuperSport 8, SuperSport 9, M-Net Movies Zone, MTV Base and M-Net Family.

“We’re excited that we’re able to add more channels to DStv Now in such a short period of time – we added 21 channels earlier this year,” commented Graeme Cumming, General Manager of DStv Digital Media. “This time we’re adding incredible local channels such as VUZU Amp, kykNET Nou! and Mzansi Wethu – giving our customers access to the best local and international entertainment and sport while on the go.”

Customers can also use DStv Now to fix error codes, check their account balance and access statements, by logging in to My DStv from the app. This has only recently been added and gives DStv customers a single app to access all things DStv-related while on the move. Customers can also log in to My DStv on DStv.com.

The DStv Now app is free to download and is available to all DStv customers. Customers can use the app to access My DStv, search the TV Guide and set remote recordings on their Exploras. The video content on DStv Now is available exclusively to DStv Premium PVR customers and can be watched via an Android phone/tablet or iOS phone/tablet and web. Relevant data costs will apply when streaming content.
