In a move that has been highly criticized on social media from 22 March MultiChoice will no longer allow a DStv subscriber to stream DStv Catch Up content – either library content or a linear TV channel as a live stream – on more than one device at the same time. “As part of our ongoing efforts to counteract password sharing and piracy, while continuing to bring you the best viewing experience, we will be introducing measures to limit concurrent streaming,” the company said in a statement. News24 reports that MultiChoice says the change is being made to all DStv subscriptions across Africa but that “only customers making use of more than one concurrent stream will be directly affected by the change.” MultiChoice says that offline viewing will not be impacted by this change and that the number of devices a DStv subscriber can have registered for streaming has also not changed.
