An early Christmas gift from Multichoice: DStv launches streaming service – with no dish or decoder required

DStv has taken the role of Santa Claus this festive season by announcing that it has Christmas gifts for its customers this December.

The channel has launched a standalone streaming service where customers can subscribe and watch all channels via the DStv app, without a decoder or satellite connection.

Announced earlier this year, DStv streaming allows for existing and new customers to access content on their preferred device including smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles or smart televisions from 16 – 20 December 2020.

Customers who are on any of the packages (apart from EasyView), who download the App on their smart device, will be able to access every channel offered on DStv Premium, excluding M-Net Movies 1, M-Net Movies 2, and fliekNET.

These excluded channels can be linked to customers’ subscriptions on a month-to-month basis via the Add Movies bundle. “In the spirit of the festive season, DStv has made Premium channels available across all packages from 16 – 20 December 2020,” DStv said.

“The open window is for streaming channels only – you won’t see any additional Catch Up but you will see your regular Catch Up. If you choose to upgrade, you will get loads more Catch Up with your new package.” – the digital satellite television said.

The DStv streaming app allows you to access all of the content available on your package without a dedicated decoder and this promotion follows the official launch of DStv’s standalone streaming service, which allows customers to sign up for DStv packages without a satellite connection.

Instead, they can download the DStv app on their laptop, smartphone, tablet, smart TV, or gaming console to stream all of the channels that are available on their chosen bouquet.

To take advantage of the Open Window promotion from 16-20 December 2020, existing DStv customers can download the app if they have not already before or during this period.

They will then be able to access Premium content when they log in through the streaming service, regardless of which package they have signed up for.
