MultiChoice South Africa has revealed that the Disney+ video streaming app is now available on its DStv Streama multimedia box. In a statement, MultiChoice said, “Now with upgrades that improve the viewing experience, DStv Streama will carry Disney+ content, bringing the best of international content right to its customers’ screens.”
The pay-TV giant said viewers will enjoy Disney’s wide range of feature-length films, documentaries, live-action and animated series, and short-form content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
Disney+ also boasts movies and TV shows from Disney’s Star brand, which includes productions by 20th Century Studios, Disney Television Studios, FX, and Searchlight Pictures, MultiChoice notes.
Launched in October 2022, the DStv Streama is a smart TV box connecting to the Internet, similar to the myriad of Android and Apple TV boxes.
The Streama allows DStv subscribers to stream their chosen channel package and content and access several third-party streaming apps.
At the launch, MultiChoice said it would onboard the Disney+ app to the Streama “as soon as possible” as it continued to develop the box’s functionality over time.
In addition to Disney+, the Streama also carries the Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Showmax, YouTube, and YouTube Kids apps.
MultiChoice South Africa CEO Nyiko Shiburi states that the DStv Streama upgrade will seek to offer seamless viewing of entertainment content to customers, all in one place.
