DStv Now Video Experience Just Got A Whole Lot Better

MultiChoice’s TV on-the-go service DStv Now has improved the customer experience on its online streaming. All DStv Premium customers who stream content through their web browsers, will enjoy the convenience of never having to download additional plug-ins again. Customers can watch their favourite shows and movies without waiting for lengthy loading times.

Head of DStv Digital Media, Graeme Cumming, is excited about this new development and says, “We think it’s only natural to move in a direction where emphasis is put on the user experience and content delivery.”

Best in class TV series, movies and documentaries offered by DStv can be streamed, through the built-in HTML video player across all major operating systems such as Windows and Mac.

The new video player automatically detects your internet connection speed and adjusts the video quality accordingly, saving your data costs. You can also manually drop the stream quality in the video settings of the browser, giving you full control over the data you use.

DStv Now, the service that brings you sport, movies, series and so much more, now has over 60 channels available for streaming, to complement an already packed Catch Up catalogue which can be streamed or downloaded.

DStv Now can be accessed online 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 channels and DStv Catch Up content is only available to DStv Premium customers with an active PVR (data costs will apply when streaming content).

Log onto and start catching up!


Special M-Net Weekend Treat For DStv Compact And Extra Customers

M-Net 101, M-Net Edge 102 and Vuzu Amp 103 to be opened to DStv Compact and Extra customers for the weekend of 28 to 30 October 2016

This Halloween weekend, we’ll be treating our DStv Compact and Extra customers to some scintillating open-time Premium viewing. From Friday, 28 October (at 6pm) to Sunday, 30 October (at 11:59pm), three of our most popular channels will be available – absolutely free!

If it’s horror you’re after, we’ll thrill you with Great Halloween Fright Night and American Horror Story on M-Net Edge. Our budding crime investigators can use their deductive skills as they watch Public Morals from the very first episode.

If the only bones you’re interested in are your funny bones, then give Mike and Molly a go (M-Net 101) or immerse yourself in our reality TV offerings on the same channel. Talented chefs from down under will battle it out on MasterChef Australia, while budding entrepreneurs pitch their ideas on Shark Tank. Then there’s the Real Housewives of New Jersey or Love and HipHop on Vuzu Amp.

If superhero’s are more your thing, there’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and The Arrow on Vuzu Amp. Or indulge your appetite for action with The Transporter Reloaded on the M-Net Sunday night movie.

If you’re a DStv Compact or Extra customer, these channels will magically appear on your package so you don’t even have to lift a finger. So have a happy Halloween on us!
