South Africa’s biggest mobile operator has announced plans to soon launch an on-demand video streaming service in the first quarter of 2017 in partnership with MultiChoice. The new OTT service will provide linear TV programming on-demand, transnational video on demand, and subscription video on demand.
The content on the new service will be available from both DStv – the premium TV service from MultiChoice and from its SVOD platform ShowMax. The service will allow users to pay a certain price and download the content rather than charging for data per megabyte used. The service will be available on a variety on platforms including web and mobile.
