MultiChoice South Africa (MCSA), a multichannel television provider in Africa, has selected OpenTV as systems integrator for the roll-out of advanced digital television services on its DStv platform.

MCSA is investigating high definition personal video recorders (HD-PVRs) with OpenTV Core2 middleware and OpenTV PVR2 software, in combination with Irdeto's content security for digital TV.

The Push Video-On-Demand service will allow MCSA to broadcast a selection of television and entertainment content directly on the hard disk of set-top boxes for immediate access by subscribers. The advanced service will provide MCSA's subscribers, over time, with a range of interactive TV content, PVR, video-on-demand, and HD services.
