As part of DStv’s ongoing commitment to drive value and convenience while enhancing the viewing experience for customers, it has launched a new offering giving customers early access to some of their favourite shows.

Customers can watch select shows ahead of their linear broadcast by watching Catch Up on the DStv App or by connecting their DStv Explora to the internet. There, they will find a row titled ‘Early Access’ with shows available to watch before they’ve broadcast on their respective channels.

On August 23, DStv made available local telenovela’s Legacy, The River, Suidooster and international reality series Love Island UK. Last week, August 27, Hacks season 1 was loaded and this week viewers will have access to international series: Cold Courage S1 and Evil S2, with more shows due to be added in due course.

The local telenovela’s - Legacy, The River and Suidooster – are available to watch one day before the episode airs on M-Net, 1Magic and kykNET. The full Box Sets of M-Net’s brand-new international series – Hacks S1 and Cold Courage S1, as well as the first eight episodes of Evil S2, will also be made available directly after their first episodes premiere on the channel. And customers can also binge a full week’s episodes of the popular reality show Love Island UK before it airs on M-Net. All you have to do is watch these shows on Catch Up via the DStv App or on your internet-connected Explora.

The DStv app can be downloaded free on Apple, Android or Huawei app stores. Customers can also have a look at the following article for guidance
