You know how it goes: Dad wants to watch SuperSport, Mom can’t get enough of Harvey in Suits and the sound of Minions is the soundtrack to your stay-at-home family weekends. It’s the war of the remote, but it doesn’t need to be.
Did you know that if you’re a DStv subscriber, you can download the DStv Now app to your smartphone or tablet and watch your favourite shows online? Just add Wi-Fi!
There are no extra costs involved to watch DStv on your devices. You’re already paying a monthly subscription, all you need is an internet connection.
Here’s how it works
Go online to now.dstv.com or download the DStv Now app. Follow the prompts to create a username and password, and ta-dah, you can watch DStv on any device.
We know what you’re thinking, and yes, you can share your logins with your family! Here’s what the set-up would look like if everyone in the fam was watching:
Device 1: TV You already have your DStv decoder hooked up to your TV; that’s one screen right there. But the struggle is real and not everyone wants to watch Storage Wars all weekend.
Device 2: Laptop Go online to now.dstv.co and log in with your username and password. Just about everything on DStv is also available on the app, whether it’s live sport or a series you’re obsessed with. There are even full seasons and box sets.
Device 3: Smartphone Download the DStv Now app (there’s one for Apple devices on the iOS store and for Android devices on the Google Play Store), log in and get streaming.
Device 4: Tablet The DStv Now app works on most tablets, exactly the same way it works on a smartphone. You can also download episodes to your devices and watch them later when you’re not on Wi-Fi.
Device 5: Smart TV Did you know that you can watch DStv on a big screen without a decoder? It’s totally possible if you have a smart TV, which is a TV that connects to the internet. The DStv Now app is available for Apple TV, Samsung smart TVs, LG smart TVs, and Android TV media players.
