We’re updating the video player on our DStv Now app to give you better video playback experience. This update will give you faster start-up times, better player controls and the ability to choose your quality settings on iOS (Android coming soon).

When you upgrade to the new version of the app, you’ll lose any existing downloads and iOS users will also lose their reminders.This is not merely an update of the current player, but a completely new player. This new player uses new video files with new licenses, which is why any shows downloaded using the old player won’t work. So please be sure you watch all your downloads before you upgrade to the new app.

We’d also like to bring to your attention that our support for Android is shifting to version 4.4 upwards. This means that if you use older versions of Android, you won’t be able to update to the latest version of the app. The version of the app you have will continue to work for a bit longer. We want you to have the best video viewing experience and know that your older version of Android will not give you that experience – we encourage you to upgrade your technology to enjoy the best experience.
