Elemental to help MultiChoice reach 10M in Sub-Saharan Africa

MultiChoice has turned to Elemental for live streaming and video-on-demand (VOD) delivery of its DStv online service, which makes sports and entertainment content available on smart phones and tablets to more than 10 million subscribers in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Rapidly expanding its portfolio, MultiChoice is also employing Elemental to power the launch of its time-shift satellite VOD (SVOD) service. This new offer will support MultiChoice DStv Box Office and MultiChoice DStv Catch-up such that premium subscribers can watch the latest movies, sports and television shows up to seven days after they air.

“Our biggest challenges with this expansion were managing scalability and our ability to react to market conditions as we launched new services,” said Jean-Pierre Rossouw, Head of Department, Video On Demand Operations for MultiChoice. “With Elemental, we were able to adapt to a rapidly increasing volume of content and growing subscriber base while meeting customer expectations around the clock. It gives us confidence to know that we are using reliable products that come with great support.”

Elemental will be exhibiting at TV Connect Africa (17th – 19th November 2015 Cape Town Convention Centre, South Africa) next week. Click here to register.
