MultiChoice South Africa, the company behind pay platform DStv, has expanded its offering to include free online learning and more entertainment.
DStv customers will have access to 600 free courses offered by US online learning platform Udemy through the DStv app until the end of July. DStv Premium customers will also have access to an email voucher to use on any of Udemy’s paid-for courses, valid for a month.
According to MultiChoice, this is an attempt to expand its content selection, value and reach as South Africans continue to adjust to new ways of living and working.
MultiChoice South Africa CEO Mark Rayner said: “MultiChoice is pleased to introduce a brand new initiative designed to help our customers make the most of their time indoors. The free online courses available through the DStv app, provide customers with the opportunity to transform their business, learn a new language or discover a new passion.
“DStv is committed to offering trusted companionship to our loyal customers. We will continue to bring you only the best local and international entertainment, keep you informed with up-to-the-minute news updates, and support our industry and government in combatting the Covid-19 pandemic.”
The group is also offering 21 channels, currently available on premium package DStv Family, to DStv Access customers from May 15 to June 14. These include sports net WWE, reality-themed Moja Love and kids’ channels Nicktoons and Boomerang HD.
