Content aggregation even more with distribution partnership agreements with two major international providers of Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD) – and offers our customers 19.5-5-00 more choices. #AnnualResults #MultiChoice #Aggregator The deal with Netflix and Amazon is surprising considering that the plan was to launch DStv Now as a full-fledged service in late March 2020, after completing external testing, as Techpoint Africa reported in November 2019. MultiChoice Group, parent company of Africa-oriented entertainment brands like DStv and GOtv, has signed agreements with Netflix and Amazon to integrate their services into the new DStv Explora set-top box. It should also be noted that after the launch of DStv Now in 2014, Showmax, an online SVoD service, was launched in 2015 and integrated with Explora. The DStv Now message “Bug 500” continued to appear on screens on Sunday night, as the channel was unable to say when the service would be operational again. Online viewers who wanted to watch the race at the Spanish Grand Prix or the English Premier League final on Sunday afternoon were unable to do so, as the DStv Now app crashed again, refining the “Error 500” message. In the meantime, DStv`s social media team assured users that technical teams were working on the issue. Channel24 contacted MultiChoice for comment.

And since Amazon Prime is a cheaper streaming option, it`s obvious that it has its fair share of subscribers. The company said that in response to the outbreak of the coronavirus in South Africa, a number of DStv Now channels are no longer blocked behind a subscription and are available to everyone with an internet connection. While Netflix is not discusing its subscriber numbers for non-US countries, Techpoint Africa reported that Netflix likely had fewer than 50,000 subscribers in Nigeria in Q2 2019. This was based on the fact that Nigeria did not enter the top 50 and Luxembourg finished 50th with 52,151 subscribers; South Africa, the only African country in the top 50, ranked 41st with 152,588 subscribers.
