“We continue to explore new ways for our users to experience DStv’s fantastic offering of global content,” says Graeme Cumming, head of DStv Digital Media. “Making the premiere episodes of shows like Big Little Lies and Crashing available for streaming to all on, just 24-hours after they become available on DStv, is another evolutionary step for us in providing different viewing opportunities for our audience”.

DStv customers can continue to watch the full seasons of Big Little Lies on M-Net on Wednesdays at 20:30 and Crashing on M-Net Edge on Tuesdays at 00:30 Express from the U.S., or Fridays at 21:40 prime time. DStv Premium customers can also watch the entire seasons of both shows on DStv Now.

A subversive, seven-episode miniseries with an ensemble cast that includes Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, Big Little Lies is a dark comedy drama exploring a tale of murder and mischief – while unravelling society’s myth of perfection and the contradictions that exist beneath the idealised pretence of marriage, sex, parenting and friendship. The stellar, ensemble cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz and Alexander Skarsgård.

In Crashing, Pete is a sheltered suburbanite who is married to his childhood sweetheart and dreams of making it as a stand-up comedian. But when he finds out his wife is cheating on him, Pete’s world unravels, forcing him to re-evaluate his priorities. Created by and starring comedian Pete Holmes and featuring a host of comedians playing themselves, Crashing is produced by Girls and Bridesmaids’ Judd Apatow.

DStv Now can be accessed online at or through the app for tablets and smartphones. The app is free to download on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and is available to all DStv customers.

Live streaming channels and DStv Catch Up content are currently available to all DStv Premium customers and data costs will apply when streaming content.
