DStv BoxOffice app added to Samsung S5

2014-04-12 09:00
Cape Town – MultiChoice and Samsung is making DStv on Demand's DStv BoxOffice available as an app on Samsung's new Galaxy S5 mobile phones.

Using the app will however cost non-DStv subscribers and phone users more to use it in order to rent a movie.

A movie and download through the phone app will cost 20% more for non-DStv subscribers who will have to pay R30 to rent a new movie through the app on a Samsung Galaxy S5. Old movies will cost R10 for both DStv subscribers and non-DStv subscribers on the new phone.

The DStv BoxOffice app will be made available exclusively to the Samsung Galaxy S5 for a limited period. Interestingly, Samsung Galaxy S5 users who are not subscribers of MultiChoice's pay-TV service will have to pay more to watch content on a smaller Samsung screen.

DStv subscribers who download the app will still pay R25 for a new movie – the same as renting a film through the DStv decoder.

Users of the Samsung phone will have 48 hours to watch a rental, the same as DStv subscribers making use of DStv BoxOffice through their decoders. A rental can be watched as many times as a user want during the 48 hour window.

The DStv BoxOffice service has proved successful and is growing, and the Samsung app functionality rolled out in conjunction with Samsung comes as its latest brand extension.
