African pay-TV operator MultiChoice is adding three new channels to its mobile TV service DStv Now.

Shorts TV, which airs short films; the UK video gaming channel Ginx TV; and English language channel Eurochannel, which provides both TV series and films from Europe, will be offered to subscribers for a limited period.

From the middle of March until middle of June 2015, the channels will be streamed by the free DStv Now app to Android and iOS smartphones and tablets for those with a DStv Premium subscription.

"We are pleased to acquire the new channels for DStv Now and hope they will resonate with short film junkies, video gamers and European culture lovers," said John Kotsaftis, CEO, DStv Digital Media.

South Africa's leading pay-TV operator recently announced a price increase for DStv Premium. From April, monthly subscriptions will rise to ZAR699 (US$59.36) from ZAR665 ($56.5).
