In what is yet another move to provide DStv subscribers with the ultimate in home television entertainment, Multichoice Ghana has launched a new service, Box Office by DStv.
BoxOffice is a service that allows subscribers to conveniently rent, keep and watch the latest blockbuster movies for up to 48 hours in the comfort of their homes, right on their DStv Explora decoders for GHS7 per movie and your first movie is courtesy of DStv Ghana. Thereafter customers using the service may choose to use any of the flexible payment options to rent and make anytime movie time with BoxOffice.
Box Office gives our subscribers access to a wide variety of movies from comedy, drama and family movies, to horror, fantasy and a whole lot more. To us at MultiChoice Ghana, BoxOffice is a step to encourage the ever developing and dynamic film industry in Ghana to produce the best quality films to feature on this platform.
There will be a choice of up to 20 movies at any one time and new titles will be updated regularly as they become available – giving you access to the latest blockbuster movies without having to leave your home and each movie’s availability will vary depending on consumer popularity and availability of new movie releases from the studios.
Access to BoxOffice is currently only available to Premium Subscribers with PVR subscriptions as a value-added service and the existing space available to you of up to 80 hours of recording on the SD PVR and up to 150 hours on the HD PVR, remains unchanged.
DStv services like BoxOffice form part of a bigger MultiChoice strategy to use cutting-edge technological innovation to help people enjoy some of the best entertainment available at a time that’s convenient to them – our definition for video-on-demand. And with the all-new Explora decoder, we’re taking on-demand -video to a whole new level, by offering subscribers an experience that mimics the Internet, but on a decoder, and without the high data bills.
