MultiChoice launches DStv Streama in South Africa
MultiChoice is launching its streaming box, DStv Streama on 01 October 2022. The TV box delivers content from DStv and other streaming services through a reliable internet connection. Compatible devices are turned into a smart TV, opening access to a bigger world of entertainment.
The DStv Streama enables customers to stream their favourite DStv content from sport, entertainment, news and education and gives them access to a variety of other apps, such as Showmax, Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, YouTube and YouTube kids.
MultiChoice South Africa CEO Nyiko Shiburi says that the DStv Streama offers customers all their entertainment options in one place. “The development of the DStv Streama brought out a rigorous journey of learning and development for the team and we are excited to bring the DStv Streama to market. This digital offering demonstrates our commitment to giving our customers more value, more choices and more convenience,” he says.
The DStv Streama offers 4K streaming quality – on 4K-capable TV’s – and does not replace the DStv Explora or Explora Ultra but can be used alongside these devices to meet the viewing needs of everyone in the family.
DStv Streama offers user-friendly menus that allow customers to access a variety of apps and streaming services with one remote. It does not require a DStv dish and infrastructure installation – just a fast, stable internet connection to unlock a world of entertainment. The DStv Streama also functions as a stand-alone streaming box, allowing customers the opportunity to stream content via other supported streaming apps and platforms – only requiring a DStv subscription to access DStv’s offering. It will be available in retail outlets and at MultiChoice Service Centres and Agencies from 01 October 2022.
