New video-on-demand platform Starrstruck available in SA

Starrstruck, a new online platform that hosts Mzansi’s hottest talent in a world-class studio, wants to bring performers and fans together – especially in times like this.

About Starrstruck

It is reported that the curated performances are recorded, post-produced, packaged and uploaded on Starrstruck. At the click of a button, fans have access to awe-inspiring acts from the country’s brilliant performers directly from the comfort of their home TV, laptop and mobile devices.

“We aim to produce high-quality content which captures the dynamic talents of each performer and captivates fans by way of emotional connection,” states their official website. “Never seen before content is curated to highlight each performer’s personal story.

“At Starrstruck Studios, our facilities are specifically designed to ensure performers are comfortable during their time with us. The performer lounge is uniquely appointed to ensure every touchpoint has been well catered for. Our Studio is equipped with world-class audiovisual, sound, lighting and camera technology.”


Catering to diverse needs, Starrstruck’s platform hosts comedy, dance, music, and theatre productions. Currently, Skwatta Kamp’s In the Name of Love and the Mzansi Youth Choir is featured, while Lizz Meiring’s Met Ander Woorde among many more world-class entertainment is coming soon.

“The world has been in shambles since the beginning of this year,” Matthew Smit, Co-Founder of Starrstruck told MyPR earlier this year.

“People everywhere have had to concede their liberties; pleasures and even means of earning a living. But rather than simply giving in and accepting that this is how our lives will forever be, Starrstruck has collaborated with South Africa’s performers to create an alternative revenue stream from digital outlets.”

The future is digital

And while the future may be digital, Starrstruck is not looking to replace live performances but merely complement them while keeping the arts alive and audiences entertained, especially during the age of social distancing. This also does not mean fans and performers can longer interact with one another. Starrstruck creates the perfect golden circle experience where up to 30 fans are invited to the live recording of the various performances before they are premiered on the Starrstruck pay-per-view/Video on Demand service. These services give audiences access to behind the scenes and up-close interviews with their favourite performers.
