“It’s possible for any DStv customer to watch the same channels and shows they watch on their decoder at home, but on a device like a phone or a laptop,” the company said said.
In a blog post, Dstv wrote that when you want to watch DStv on the go, there’s only one app you need: DStv! “We’ve changed the name from DStv Now – but kept all the features the same – you can stream your live channels and watch catch up too.” – they said
“If you already have our DStv Now app and have selected auto-update, the app will automatically update. If you don’t have auto-updates on your device, you can update your DStv app by going to your app store.” – the website says
