It was just a few months back that DStv announced its Explora Ultra, which combines DStv’s traditional services with the ability to integrate various streaming services in a single box. Another service has just hit the box — Amazon Prime Video is now available on the Explora Ultra.
Exploring the Amazon Prime Video
Multichoice CEO Nyiko Shiburi said “We are excited to add Amazon Prime Video to the DStv Explora Ultra’s pot of exceptional content. This opportunity unlocks access to more quality global content for our customers and is another way to access Amazon Prime Video content, whilst complementing DStv’s promise to offer the very best in local content.”
Amazon Prime Video joins other streaming services Showmax, Box Office (both of which belong to Multichoice), Netflix and Joox. But don’t expect it to be free, obviously. You’ll still have to pay extra to access Amazon’s service on Multichoice’s box.
How to make the thing work
If you’re already an Amazon Prime Video subscriber then getting it to work on your Explora Ultra is as simple as signing into your account on the box. And if you’re looking to sign up, then sign-up takes place on the Explora Ultra’s main page. You’ll sign up for Amazon’s service and you’ll be billed by the large online retailer. Then, input your details and watch the likes of The Boys, The Wilds and The Marvellous Mrs Maisel.
