DStv viewers on the Compact Plus and Compact bouquets can now access Live TV and DStv Catch Up through DStv Now, a service previously available only to Premium bouquet customers with PVR decoders. Liz Dziva, publicity and public relations manager of MultiChoice Zimbabwe, said DStv Now was a value-added service that provided a home for DStv on the move. “It is available to customers on a variety of devices, from desktop and laptop computers to many Android and iOS-based tablets and smartphones, and allows them to stream Live TV and Catch Up anywhere, anytime,” she said.
This service was previously available only to customers with an active PVR decoder, but is now available to all Premium, Compact and Compact Plus customers irrespective of their decoder type. “All you need is an active decoder in order to stream Live TV and access Catch Up. By downloading the app to your cellphone or logging on through your desktop browser, you get to watch Live TV, see the full DStv TV Guide, enjoy DStv Catch Up content, streaming or download, and manage your account at your convenience,” she said.
The Live TV and DStv Catch Up content on DStv Now will be matched to the package on which the customer is linked. DStv Compact Plus customers will have access to over 40 channels on the go, while DStv Compact customers will get more than 30 channels. This includes live streaming of package-specific SuperSport channels and access to movie and entertainment channels, documentaries, lifestyle channels, music and many children’s channels. “The tech team has added the security of a four-digit personal identification number on the apps to allow parents to make sure children can’t view anything outside the children’s section. You’ll be prompted to enter and confirm this number once you access the section for the first time,” said Ms Dziva.
DStv Now can be accessed on up to four mobile devices from the same account, so customers can stream a movie or watch a sports game match while the children view cartoons. Setting up is easy, and customers will need a Connect ID that they can create on http://now.dstv.com or through the DStv Now app. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store for mobile devices and tablets, or customers can find out more by visiting http://now.dstv.com.

The full ticket with perks such as three nights of B&B accommodation in the resort town of Victoria Falls will go for $450 on www.webtickets.co.zw as of the 8th of June 2017.
Stephanie continued “the Vic Falls Party Bus is what happens when you put a bunch of fun-loving people from across the region, an awesome LIVE DJ, a few shots of wiser waters in a luxury coach all wrapped into one big unforgettable experience, last year had a ride full of shenanigans! This year we take it up a notch, so don’t be left out”
With this much ample time to plan, the Enthuse Afrika team expressed confidence that party-goers would have enough time to join the Vic Falls Party Bus 2017. “We chose to open the ticket box earlier this time so that everyone who wants to join us has a chance to save up or pay in installments, we definitely expect to sell out this year” Stephanie concluded.
