DStv Now is the accompanying app for DStv, which is a Sub-Saharan African direct broadcast satellite service owned by MultiChoice. This streaming app gives you direct access to DStv content via your account in the same way that Netflix does.
You can apply this app to your TV box or programmable TV if it allows third-party apps, and you can save and download videos to watch later. This is similar to how ClipGrab allows you to download and save YouTube videos.
How can I watch DStv online for free?
Options for free videos are only available through legitimate means. You have to go to the DStv website and sign up for an account. You may then see their options for free streaming. There are actually some free channels you can watch if you have an account with DStv.
You may have to use a VPN in some countries if you wish to watch. Plus, in some countries like the UK, you will still need a paid TV licence, even to watch free TV shows.
What is the DStv app?
This streaming service app allows you access to free and paid TV shows, there are 25 available channels, there is a child-friendly function, and you can download and save episodes of TV shows.
The app itself also allows you to manage your DStv subscription, pay your bills, change your user information, fix errors, and change TV channel packages.
A nice app with a few functional problems
The primary problem with this TV app is that the bug testers didn't account for a variety of different user-experience features. For example, when some people's screen lock comes on, the app stops. Also, some people using power-save on their phone will see error messages come up on the DStv app.
The developers' attempts to create a cross-platform streaming service means that the service is pretty functional on most Windows PCs, but it is not as effective on Mac and has various problems with several types of smartphones. Most of the bugs and functional problems can be worked around, and when you do, this app does its job quite nicely.
