DStv and Telkom in video deal

DStv and Telkom announced in a press release on Thursday, 2 October 2014, that they are collaborating to offer a promotion they call “2–4–1 Movie Mondays”.

The promotion forms part of Telkom’s “Summer of Wow” campaign and will let DStv BoxOffice users rent two BoxOffice movies for the price of one, every Monday during the month of October 2014.

All BoxOffice users who take advantage of the promotion before the end of October will be automatically entered into a lucky draw to win a Telkom Supreme SmartHome package.

The package includes a Samsung Smart TV and a 24 month broadband contract valued at over R47,000, DStv said.

“We are thrilled about our collaboration with Telkom,” said CEO of DStv Digital Media John Kotsaftis.

“This is a first of its kind for BoxOffice and we can’t wait to give movie lovers more of what they want; Monday night will officially become Telkom and BoxOffice Movie Mondays,” Kotsaftis said.

The promotion is only available to DStv subscribers with PVR access, DStv said.

DStv recently expanded its PVR-based BoxOffice service to include Compact subscribers.

When a subscriber rents one BoxOffice movie from their PVR decoder or Explora they will receive credit for the second movie.

Each rental on Mondays will qualify as a single entry into the lucky draw for the Telkom SmartHome Supreme package.
