MultiChoice is extending access to its on-the-go DStv Now service to all its DStv Premium customers. This means all Premium customers can now enjoy more than 60 live DStv channels and access to the world’s hottest TV shows and movies on Catch Up. Previously, the full DStv Now service was only available to DStv Premium customers with an active PVR.

The Catch Up library on the DStv Now app turns a customer’s smartphone or tablet into a decoder in your pocket, as series and movies can be downloaded to watch later. Now it’s easy to enjoy DStv originals like The Voice SA and Ons Sprokiesbruilof.

This library also includes the M-Net Movie Collection which offers a thousand movies that are updated weekly. There’s also a DStv Kids section on the app, specifically designed to keep the little ones entertained when you’re away from home, with a handy parental control feature to ensure the kids watch what’s right for them.

Premium customers can now stream sport live from the SuperSport channels; perfect for keeping up with live action like the Super Rugby and the Proteas versus New Zealand.
