MultiChoice Extends ‘DStv Now’ Service to Compact, Compact Plus Customers

By Dipo Olowookere

MultiChoice customers on DStv Compact and DStv Compact Plus have now been given the opportunity to enjoy DStv Now, a value-added service hitherto exclusively for customers with an active PVR decoder.

The service allows customers stream live TV and get Catch Up on-the-go at no additional cost.

It is available to customers on a variety of devices, from desktop and laptop computers, to a multitude of Android and iOS-based tablets and smartphones to stream Live TV and Catch Up anywhere, anytime.

For subscribers to enjoy this service, they will need to have an active decoder.

A statement issued by MultiChoice explained that, “By downloading the app to your cell phone, or logging on via your desktop browser, you get to watch Live TV, see the full DStv TV Guide, enjoy DStv Catch Up content (via streaming or download) and manage your account at your convenience.

“The Live TV and DStv Catch Up content on DStv Now will be tailor-made as per the package you are on. DStv Compact Plus customers will have access to over 40 channels on the go, while DStv Compact customers will get over 30 channels.

“This includes live streaming of package-specific SuperSport channels, and access to their favourite movie and entertainment channels, documentaries and lifestyle channels, music plus a host of kid’s specific channels to keep the little ones busy.”

“We’ve also added the security of a four-digit PIN (personal identification number) on the apps to make sure your children can’t view anything outside of the Kids section. You’ll be prompted to enter and confirm this number once you access the section for the first time.

“DStv Now can be accessed on up to four mobile devices from the same account, so you can stream a movie, or watch live football matches while the kids watch cartoons.

“Getting set up is easy: you’ll need a Connect ID that you can create on or through the DStv Now app,” the statement added.
