Three new channels for DStv
DStv Now, the recently launched brand new app, is launching three bonus channels, ShortsTV, Ginx TV and Eurochannel, that will only be available on the DStv Now app for a limited period. This marks a new move for MultiChoice as new channels usually hit cable television first.
MultiChoice said ShortsTV is the global home of short film, where short stories come to life in stunning high definition. The channel brings audiences captivating contemporary short form content from filmmakers across six continents. Ginx TV is the world’s only 24/7 international video gaming television channel, offering the very best video reviews, news and features from the world of video gaming and the video gaming culture.
Eurochannel is an award winning television channel featuring premium European entertainment with the biggest stars. The channel is in English and presents only top of the line European programming from recent blockbusters to critically acclaimed TV series. John Kotsaftis, Chief Executive Officer, DStv Digital Media, said that as a pioneer at delivering content via breakthrough technologies they do their best to get content that will captivate audiences across the continent.
“We are pleased to acquire the new channels for DStv Now and hope they will resonate with short film junkies, video gamers and European culture loves.”
The DStv Now app is free to download and is available to all DStv customers. The video content on DStv Now is available exclusively to DStv Premium PVR customers and can be watched via an Android phone/tablet or iOS phone/tablet. Relevant data costs will apply when streaming content. ShortsTV, Ginx TV and Eurochannel will be available for three months from mid March to mid June 2015.
