DStv Now is all about discovering new content and getting a chance to watch your favourite DStv shows and the hottest sporting events on the go.
Sometimes life gets in the way and you have to improvise. Lucky for you, DStv Now allows you to catch your favourite shows whether you're stuck at the office or in a long shopping queue. Enjoy streaming live TV channels on the go if you’re a DStv Premium, DStv Compact Plus or DStv Compact customer*.
From M-Net to the M-Net Movies channels, BBC Brit and ITV Choice, kykNET, Mzansi Magic, a host of SuperSport channels, CBeebies and Nickelodeon for the kids and an array of news channels*, there’s something for everyone.
Select your channel and click "Watch Live" to start streaming right away. You’ll even have access to each channel’s schedule so you can plan your viewing and read the synopsis for current and upcoming programming.
The more you know
For a more comprehensive overview of what’s coming up on which channel, click "TV Guide" in the menu bar on either the DStv Now app or online. You’ll be able to scan all the channels and see what’s coming up – and when – almost like the EPG on your PVR but now it’s in the palm of your hand.
Don’t forget your data
Remember that live streaming will use data for both the app and online. We advise that you stream on an uncapped internet connection so that you won't have to worry about running out of data during that important nail-biting scene.
If you’re viewing content online, the smart DStv Now video player automatically detects your connection speed, playing DStv content at the most appropriate quality and reducing buffering for an enhanced viewing environment. It is just as simple to control your video quality on the app. You can set your choice of video quality via the settings menu. Choose the lowest quality to reduce data costs or the highest quality to truly enjoy every little detail.
Be aware of internet usage policies – we wouldn’t want you raising a warning flag for watching The Queen.
