BoxOffice, brought to you by DStv, is a Video On Demand service that allows you to rent and watch some of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters for 48 hours, directly from your smartphone. You can either stream movies while you’re connected to the Internet, or download to watch later.
MultiChoice and Samsung is making DStv on Demand’s DStv BoxOffice available as an app on Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 mobile phones. The Samsung Galaxy S5 will be the first to offer DStv’s BoxOffice application and open a new world of convenient entertainment options to customers.
Using the app will however cost non-DStv subscribers and phone users more to use it as they will have to pay R30 to rent a new movie through the app on a Samsung Galaxy S5. DStv subscribers who download the app will still pay R25 for a new movie – the same as renting a film through the DStv decoder. Old movies will cost R10 for both DStv subscribers and non-DStv subscribers on the new phone.
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.
Download DStv’s BoxOffice App from the Google Play Store and watch some of the latest Hollywood blockbusters on your Samsung GALAXY S5 now.
NOTE: The service is only available for people living in South Africa as at the time of publishing this post.
