Just a few days after announcing the introduction of BBC First (channel 119) on Multichoice’s DStv platform in response to a viral online petition, they have now also enabled DStv Catch Up on both the Compact and Compact Plus bouquets from the 1st of November 2015. It was previously only available to DStv Premium subscribers before.
If you own a DStv Explora and have the Compact or Compact Plus, you can view programmes you might have missed while you were away from your TV as these are automatically sent via satellite to subscribers’ DStv Exploras.
However, the content you are able to view on Catch Up will only be what your bouquet allows you to see, for example, Compact bouquet subscribers can only see what’s available on the Compact package.
In a release sent out today Multichoice Zambia’s Acting General Manager Ngoza Kasunga Matakala stated, “We always look for opportunities to enhance the viewing experience of our subscribers and we strive to provide them with cutting-edge services and products. It is for this reason that we constantly introduce new technologies and enhance our existing services. Offering Catch Up to our DStv Compact Plus and Compact subscribers with DStv Exploras is just one of the ways we are doing this.”
You can view up to a 100 hours of stored content at a time. Multichoice says the software to enable Catch Up accessibility will be rolled out over this week before the 1st of November.
