BritBox International Added to DStv Offering in South Africa


BritBox International has struck a deal with South Africa’s DStv to make the British-TV streamer available as an app on the Explora Ultra and Streama devices and as an add-to-bill option for all subscribers.

BritBox brings a wide range of new and exclusive titles plus hundreds of hours of classic content—from dramas and comedies to crime, documentaries, lifestyle shows and murder mysteries. Starting today, DStv customers can enjoy linear broadcasting and the addition of the BritBox streaming service.

“We’re delighted to add BritBox to the range of services our customers can enjoy on our devices, with the added benefit of paying only one bill for all their entertainment,” said Marc Jury, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa. “By making it easy for our subscribers to access and enjoy world-class entertainment in one place, we’re always prioritizing a better customer experience. DStv Explora Ultra and Streama are enablers for MultiChoice’s partnership with BritBox, which offers more content, ease of subscription and payment, with the digital world presenting an opportunity for a more enhanced video-on-demand experience.”

Reemah Sakaan, CEO of BritBox International, said: “Through this new partnership with MultiChoice we will bring BritBox’s unparalleled Original series to DStv subscribers across South Africa, express from the U.K., as well as the largest collection of British programming, all in one place. This includes exclusive new hits such as Stonehouse, starring Emmy-winner Matthew Macfadyen, Death in Paradise spin-off Beyond Paradise, period drama The Confessions of Frannie Langton and dark comedy The Cleaner. MultiChoice joins our list of prestigious international partners as we continue to delight quality-seeking audiences and our more than three million subscribers across the world.”
