How to watch DStv on five devices without paying extra

Oct 25, 2018
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 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 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.
So many devices, so many series to binge-watch!
