DStv Now is an internet streaming video service free to all DStv customers (the specific content available is linked to the customer’s DStv package). Data is not included with DStv Now and usage may be charged by a customer’s ISP or mobile network.
With DStv Now, two different streams can be viewed on separate devices simultaneously. This means a single account can be used to watch TV via a decoder in the lounge, a movie on a tablet in the bedroom via DStv Now, and sport on another smart TV using DStv Now. It’s also a great way for kids who are away from home to get the most from the family’s DStv subscription.
