Watch your favourite shows on DStv from any room in the house, without shuffling TVs and decoders.

Catch an episode of The Queen while you’re making dinner, watch My Perfect Wedding while you’re in bed, and livestream Amakhosi taking on the Bucs to the nearest smart TV when you’re at your friend’s house. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection and to be registered for DStv Now.

What is DStv Now?

DStv Now is an online version of DStv – you download the app, register and log in.

Watch sports, series and movies on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, computer or even your smart TV. You can watch whatever is showing on your favourite DStv channels live, or use Catch Up to stream and download the latest episodes of series. You can even binge-watch entire seasons as a box set.
