 Business Daily, Pg: 8 DSTV to deliver cable content in growth strategy

MultiChoice has adopted a hybrid technology in a bid to cut installation costs and boost efficiency. The move will see MultiChoice deliver its content through coaxial cables, a move analysts say will address high upfront costs and signal disruptions seen in the current satellite transmission system. The firm has since started the search for local broadband providers that will carry its content via fibre optic cables and copper wire. The shift in consumer preferences that has seen rise in Internet use to access home entertainment could also be one of the reasons behind the new DSTV strategy. This move comes when international content providers like Netflix and Hulu are targeting local audiences by streaming their content through the Internet, bringing in competition in the Pay - TV segment.
