Reviews From google play store

I can sign in on my browser but the moment I try to sign in on the app it tell me that my details seem to be wrong. How can details seem to be wrong??? It's either they are right or wrong. On occasions when I have signed in, it tells me that I am using a compact subscription. This is very frustrating and I am tired of this.


Now that you have profiles, I suggest enabling parental guidance and a profile access password option. Other recommendations : °Show programme info and now/next on the main section during playback instead of beneath. °Include IMDB & TVDB ratings and info. °Change screen ratio / fill to screen / zoom etc. ° 5.1ch surround sound. ° Proper EPG view like Perfect Player app


Can't log in. Says my details are incorrect. Works fine on the pc though using the exact same details I used on the app. It's literally just the app that is not working. Customer support did not seem to be able to fix the problem either.


This app is so frustrating. Your account is active but you can't watch any program or station. Please close the app if you guys at multi choice can not rectify the problem.


Very useful app but once your subscription goes off & you renew, you can't watch anything. Tried contacting customer care and DStv Now app support to resolve the issue, all to no avail. I just uninstalled the app. Fix this!!


DSTV NOW app has made my life very easy and liveable. Even when I'm not home but if it's time for me to watch one of my shows I just take out my phone and watch wherever I am. Thanx to MULTICHOICE for bringing this app to your people.


I'm terribly dissapointed with the update, like really. It's annoyingly slow on downloads it literally takes more than an hour to download a 100mb episode, the previous version was way better than this "new" version. Is there a way I can go back to the previous version?. I even thought it was my network that has issues, turns out it's not; downloads on other platforms perform exceptionally well. I'm running out of patience here.


Its a super amazing app. Its just like having your dstv everywhere u go. Its everything they say it is, i love it i can always catch my show even when im away long distances. But the one downside is that u cant record a movie on your phone 😔, u can only set the recording to your decoder at home if it is connected to the internet. Its a really bad downside because it theres no light or im not connected to the internet I can't record my shows that i may miss.


This App is useless!!! When I first installed it, it was great. Now, I can't see the full list of shows on 'live tv' and there are hardly any shows or movies on catch up. You can't search for anything, keeps saying 'sorry we couldn't find any results'. Very disappointing considering how much dstv costs. Please sort this out. Just not cool guys, not cool!!!


I have been so patient with this app. It doesn't show all the shows for the each channel and the TV Guide doesn't even work. Catch Up is useless and so is searching. When you do find the show you want to watch(e.g. Live Sport) it doesn't play. This is sad and heartbreaking especially because DStv delivers high quality content. Really Disappointed.


Very cool app, I can search by an actor, or theme or title an well, it will bring the content, easy to navigate and find what you want but of lately freezes on older phones a same phone that dont freeze on youtube, if it can be brought to sams performance as youtube, though it needs some improvements. I would have like to chat with people who are watching and also would like to comment on video like with youtube. And also like and dislikes a video.


This app recently ain't worth a penny, keeps on giving error 403 and error 404, one cannot stream in peace to catch up on their favourite channels, especially supersport channels - and on contacting the Dstv Kenya customer center all they have to say is we are aware of the problem, now two months counting you are still aware of the problem? And no resolution or a workaround? Recently I've been reaching out to them and they give no answer at all, like they are clueless of what's going on


Why is it that now if I want to watch shows when am not at home the app is telling me to input code on my TV? Meanwhile I'm not at home


Its is good. But not as the old version, where you can scroll through the channel while watching.


Continuous Errors.. Shame at least you tried, pitty no matter how much you tried cloaning Netflix you still just cant get it right. I pay nearly a gran for DSTV and I can count on my hand how many times we watch a month. There are always errors or some form of technicalities. Even the DSTV app for accounts etc just as bad...can't even log in! Catch awake up you are lagging behind and will soon not even be an option for many!


As a 1st time user of the app,i would like to say i am disappointed .I have been trying to register for the past two days as i cannot go beyond stage 1 of the registration process on account of 4 one time pins being sent to my number (which i have not recieved but have only received two pins despite only clicking to register once).i called your contact centre,explained my issue but was told i had to wait 24 hours before another pin would be sent to me .why wait for 24hours to register?


I liked it before cause despite the fact that I'm not home i still got to watch all my shows and discover more things to watch than i actually find on TV but now all if a sudden the app isn't working. I can't access my catchup and i have even tried updating the app but nothing works. I'm disappointed because i miss the functions it had.


Since the last date the TV guide mostly gives a message "SORRY. Something went wrong." I'm told to try again after a few minutes but even hours later the guide is unavailable. The other functions seem to work but the guide is the main reason I have the app. Please fix this.


The app is fine for watching on the go but I have two issues with it. 1. When you download a movie or show, it's only available for two days. This is not nearly long enough. Even a week is a short. 2. When watching a series, the next episode doesn't automatically play. You have to scroll again, click on it, it goes on top of the screen and then you click play. This is incredibly counterintuitive for watching series. Thanks.


Love this app but you just lost 3 stars!!!! Please tell me why there are adds in the app? I am paying for my DSTV subscription, why is there adds?? It is flippen irretating!!! As if we do not have enough adds on television. I am paying for my data, who the hec gave you the right to insert adds and use my data?


Why doesn't the app let me cast to a screen? I paid for a subscription didn't I? Whenever I try to do it there's no video just audio, video returns as soon as I turn off the screen cast option on my device. Bad flaw on an otherwise great app. I can't carry my decoder and dish everywhere and I prefer the TV screen if it is an option. You guys took away the choice. Not fair.


Latest update now leaves even less to watch. All my catch up programs are gone. Almost all the channels are missing and the catch up programs are mostly local content and not even all the local content.🤨 I have tried correcting this by going to the community forum, but people have been complaining about the same issue for 3 weeks now with nor resolve. Please can you fix it. No point in having dstv, if you can not watch it. Netflix and Showmax seems to be more viable daily...🤔


DStv Now app is so amazing, it gives me what I deserve. It is accurate, fast and no freezing pictures. I use it when am away from home. When driving, out on holidays and in the bush. You can use any where in the world. And it is good on saving data.


The worst app and the customer service...Incompetent staff that's meant to help/support. I've been sent from pillar to post trying to de-register or remove my old profile in order to register with my current/new email account...my old email address (Username), as it apparently include the old or same credetials or whatever that is.


Atrocious streaming. One cannot stream a sport game, or much else for that matter, as it constantly lags. I have very fast fibre and every other app works perfectly. The content one actually wants to watch, you cant because the servers are permanently overloaded (or so the perma lag indicates). Dont even bother downloadimg it. Great job on the Rugby world cup slide show (sarcasm)


The app was great and all just before the new update, now error messages and video playback errors just pop up out of nowhere, but the most frustrating thing is not being able to watch offline/downloaded videos when you run out of data or not connected to wifi, as soon as you open the app it shows no internet connection please try again and it doesn't even show the downloads option. Please fix this and bring back the great app we all knew and loved


Lately the app is messed up. It gives me an error 500 when i want to watch something and then it takes a day or so before i can actually watch the show again and sometimes it takes a day to show the latest episode. So annoying.


On mobile phone perfecton my little boy xbox one its useless everytime i have to verify the tv it has the same device saved 3times and my phone. Tells me maximum limit of devices reached but its the same device same serial number after deletimg the xbox one twive i cant sign in again need to wait six months keeps askimg for verification code. How cab the sae device be registered multiple times to the same account makes no sense


Extremely perfect I have been enjoying my DSTV App . I can catch up with any of the tv series anywhere I am.


The App deleted all the shows that I can watch, I have been uninstalling it thinking maybe it needs an update or something. And the shows that are available, they very old. And what is confusing me more is that my app is connected to a dstv premium account, so it doesnt make sense when I cant find anything. I am not satisfied at all


Untill recently the only problem i had was slow internet and because of this Its easier to download and watch later. However. I have hardly been able to download lately. It gives me error 403 and when i do manage to download after downloading the whole file it says user not entitled. It also does not display shows you are watching anymore. It is really infuriating. At the price of a premium subscription i feel that service or perks linked to the account should be of high quality!! #dissapointed


Perfect and ever improving... I like that they added the option to watch in fullscreen. I also like that you can choose the quality of the video you download and you watch... It just needs to automatically switch through the quality if it is high... To low and high again depending on how good the network is abit better... And a mute button or circle somewhere on the screen so you can multitask while still using the app.


App was fine before, but more recently I have been experiencing errors everytime I use it. At the moment I can't access anything besides a few South African series, live tv only displays 5 channels and sometimes I get an error trying to view the tv guide. Really frustrating. Logged out and back in and it still did not work. Even reinstalled app and that did not help.


This app is pathetic!! It does not let me log in, it keeps saying incorrect details and when I try to reset my password, it does not even let me do that. Compared to other streaming apps, this is by far the most disappointing one. Considering the price of DStv, more effort should be put into your app actually working!!!


Ooh Man! This app is stupidly complicated for no reason! Like why do you have to struggle to find your favorite channels... and you have to navigate through it and some content is not available... its just poor! Very !


If I am already paying for DSTV premium, and I owe no one and have never missed any payment, plus I am also charged regular data charges, why does the app have ads? No I do not want app ads. I do not need app ads. I am on premium. I do not want ads. Interface is awesome and I generally have no problems with the app, but the ads. Just, no. Thanks.


Recently my app is just messed up. It doesn't have shows on catchup like before, it shows only a list of local series and it's not per channel like before. It was working better than catch up on my TV now it's just useless and I enjoyed watching it while I was away from from home but now nothing 😔😔😔😔. I've tried logging out and in again thinking it'll be sorted but nothing


I have emailed more than 4 times with Complaints without receiving any correspondence from you guys. I have been paying my subscription but the App is not working it's only showing 4 channels. What's the use of paying If i wont be having full access to what i am paying for. It worked fine in the 1st month and then after it stopped showing all channels. Its useless


The app is great but now it's broken. My Huawei P Smart 2019 can install the app. I however cannot see a thing unless it's in PIP mode. In full screen it's just a black screen. FIX IT. This used to be my favourite app but now it's a dud.


Firstly: I can't even log into the app with my account details, I've tried logging into the app with my email address and phone number both attempts rejected with the message "incorrect details" but when I log in via the Internet my details are all of a sudden correct and I can access the dstv now hub?, if I ask to change my details,i can't cause the server is offline For weeks And whenever I do get into the app, there's always an error code that appears when I try to stream or watch catch up


Compared to other streaming services like Netflix and prime, Dstv now's quality of picture and framerate are the worst. Using the website on your desktop is even worse. This is supposed to be world class service for the price but it is not. Please put some serious rethinking in the media streaming player that you are currently using it is terrible. Also some added sound options would appreciated, especially for sport viewing.


Am so disappointed with this app I downloaded it but i can't even log in or register it keeps on saying i must enter valid email address.... I even tried reaching out to them with live chat no one is answering I sent them all my details but no response am very much disappointed am deleting the app its useless


Can log into dstv now website with ease but can't log into dstv now app. Tried on more then one device. Useless app


While I must appreciate DSTV for this wonderful app, especially on the latest improvements, but I must say that I have been so frustrated to know that the channels in the app are far below the ones I have in my package, for example, I don't have NTAi , ROK2 etc in this app. Please you guys should do something urgent about this .


Well designed App. User friendly. Works well on all my devices. However i dont like the fact that is limited to 4 devices. I think your competitors are doing it better with limiting the screens watched at the time not the devices. Also the Google certified story will limit the use of good devices like Huawei in a future because of the Google ban. DSTV Now is the only streaming service I'm using which have requirements like this. Is frustrating plese remove it.


Nice improvement on the app update. I have a problem with the fact that your package doesn't automatically take effect right after you made a change in package. For instance I changed from family package to compact but the package still remained on access that I have left about 4monthd ago. Fix that. And for extra jollof right; can't this app be made to run without wasting extra money on data. i.e. running offline like the one on those days Nokia phone which ran without dungle.


Disappointed! It use to work well before but all of a sudden it started displaying only dish even though I have full subscription and it hasn't expired. I have tried rebooting but no difference. Now I can't watch my favorite programs at work!


The fact that I can no longer catch up on my favorite shows from channel 161 is really frustrating! I've tried everything from resetting to deleting and installing the app. I now have to download the shows from youtube


This app is fantastic can't complain at all, l enjoy my DStv on the go very much. No need to rush to catch that EPL match at home, l just log in and Bam!! am in, even when in a taxi. Wherever you're very easy to use


This is pretty awesome, it gives me so much more on mobile plus the privacy and own time.. great app!


Edit: I've adjusted my review after the response from DSTV. Thank you. Please stop asking me to rate in the middle of shows. I have to go all the way back to find the right episode again and I've already rated! 5 star once the app stops doing that to me.


Great app, love it and it's convenience. However, of late, alot of the shows I had been able to download are suddenly not available for download. Which is such a drag.


Constant buffering regardless of your internet connection speed and stability. Most of the features don't work. Searching for catch-up shows? "Something went wrong. 403". Want to see the TV guide? "Something went wrong. 403". I've logged out and back in and restarted my phone. Doesn't work.


If zero stars was possible that's the rating I would give. I'm able to login via Chrome on my phone but can't watch anything as I'm prompted to download the app to watch catchup shows or stream. I have downloaded the app but it keeps saying the same details I used to log in on Chrome are now incorrect on the app. This is unacceptable and must be fixed immediately. We pay premium dollar for this service to perform this poorly.


At first was confused because of the layout...the movies part wish it could be categorized like the one on tv cause I have to search even deeper cause I don't watch horror and it takes time for me to choose a movie to watch...but otherwise everything is perfect


Pretty much useless: endless buffering, freezing, and errors, even on a fast, reliable connection. Currently missing Liverpool v. Manchester City thanks to a service that always promises what it cannot deliver.


Update: I've updated this app hoping the issue has been resolved, but its the same. Streaming only gives audio and no video. Audio is heard on a blank black screen. There seems to be no solution from the app developer.


You people failed to address a glaring weakness in your app which is the showing of Football matches in real time!! A whole 50secs would have elapsed before I can see it while watching a live match. Please address this urgently. There's no fun seeing things that already happened 50secs earlier in a live match. Please do something dstv


When ever i Register my Number, smart card number the app complies during that moment, Now just after Registering, If i try to log in, The app always says, The inform you provided is incorrect, Now am tried of trying, Dstv has even Stopped sending me Tpins. Help me.........


Had the opportunity to use this app in South Africa and it works superb. The Sports channel in HD. However, the Nigeria version is repugnant to say the least... Even the supposed HD channels aren't. Worse still, the Europa League actually features in SA and we get flimsy excuses in Nigeria. Update your service


App is buggy. Remote recording hasn't been working for months.


I thought an upgrade is supposed to be a better version of the app, this is the worst upgrade ever , it's actually a downgrade by several miles. I can't use the app for 15 minutes without an error message and sometimes I can't even access channels at all.


It keeps on sowing an error saying DSTV Now has stopped working as soon as I want to check on a whatsapp. Then my phone won't even restart and I have to remove my battery every time. Please resolve this and release a fix with an update. This did not happen until I ran the latest update. Still having the problem above!! Very frustrating...


I can't be able to log into the app. It gives an error that my credentials are incorrect yet the credentials work fine when I log in via laptop. What seems to be an issue with it?


Error code 500 received when trying to watch shows on catchup... Also multiple failures and server error codes when trying yo download episodes from catchup's download option... Don't even bother to post a useless reply here DSTV...your reply would be as empty and useless as your service! 🤮🤯


Downloaded the app for the 1st time a few days ago. Still can't register. Keeps telling me, an OTP has been sent to my number. But I haven't received any token till now after several attempts. I think i will head back to Netflix after my subscription expires.


All this updates over so many years but still can not change commentary on the app. Would be 5 but no can not fix such small thing. Will this be fix in future or not, want to know if still have to stay with you or not because if that will not change this 4 will go to 0 instead. And this app will be deleted.


I just downloaded this app so that I can enjoy my DSTV on the go but I must admit I am very disappointed. The only channel I seem to be able to access is 'Dish on Tv ' which is not what I want. My DSTV subscription is up to date so why can't I access the channels on the app?


I was able to log in to the DStv Now website from my phone's browser and even from my laptop. When I try to log in through the app it does not allow the same credentials. Please fix this


Great way to watch, download and record when you are not at home. Especially for a student when you are at res. Just the occasional repairs on the app that throw me off every so often. But overall it's AMAZING


This is the coolest app Regardless the data usage It's the way to go especially now I'm away from home, but I can still connect to my channels Can dstv think about maybe to charge a once off payment every month, rather than a data since they use email to register your device over the dstv subscription But yah I recommend their good work It's super fast too


It is a good app. Good to use when you're not at home or don't have direct access to a DSTV decoder. The issue is Catch up or the entire app itself will sometimes glitch and it will not playing anything, not even live TV.


It's been a great experience. I don't miss any of team football match likewise a comprehensive highlights of other teams. It's welcome and fascinating development in this age


Initially I had problems accessing and watching on different locations, I could only access in my house, after contacting them they reset it and was told to clear cookies, so far so good.


Absolute NONSENCE !!!! It works perfectly, until today when some bright spark thought of "changing" it. Now suddenly I must set up a silly profile with photo and name. NOTHING in this country works anymore and now you want to "change" one of the only things that was working. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬


It's easier for me to navigate and choose what I want to watch when I want to watch either then having a PVR Decoder. it's pvr experience and more. I can rewind fast forward pause watch shows later with catch yp


Love it!!! One question, why doesn't want the app to open if it's keeping asking edit your profile, and when you are done it keeps on giving a new block that says add a profile?


Thought you'd add subtitles and language options...I don't see anything new here.Why are the subs available on the decoder for movie channels and other HD channels but not on the APP for same channels? Please add on the next update. NetfliX and others have subtitles, this can't be hard.


The App was working fine until the latest update. I can not do any live streaming, error 403. There is only 20 items under each Catch up category, i.e. series, movies, kids, etc. I can also not see the tv guide, error 403. When going to settings it tells me Registration error 403.


This is one of the worst streaming apps out there. Looking to find a new app for streaming sports. It's way too expensive for the service you get. If Supersport splits from DStv I'll definitely switch. There are just too many problems.


The video streams are to smoothened and washed out. This has taken away sharpness and detail. I am also not happy with HQ resolution yet same channels are available in HD via dish and decoder set up. Please fix. Now with the negatives out of the way.. It is a great app with intuitive design.


Although I love this app, I have been experiencing many problems with it lately. The app frequently crashes and gives various error messages every few minutes, making it nearly impossible to watch without interruptions.


Wish you had a similar app for Windows/xbox available on the windows store similar to showmax's...its *daunting using the application via browsers on the aforementioned platforms..*(doesnt work at all on xbox)..also ya'll reduced the number of linked devices, and the app doesnt work on some brand phones like Asus brand androidsp


Loving the app. It would be nice if it had a comments section for episodes one is watching. I mean which viewer wouldn't wanna add their two cents worth... I mean it would show the amount of South Africans who actually use the app, allow them to engage with each other further allowing them to share their opinions and views on shows their collectively watching plus it placing a like sign on the episode would allow viewers to vote for a show they actually enjoyed giving birth to the DSTV Now awards


It's impossible to gain access to this application via your phone or any other device. I have successfully registered and changed my password successfully on multiple occasions but when I enter my password the application responds that my details are incorrect.


It has been working okay I Just get some error some errors when i try to load the dstv guide sometime Plus the screen of the app does not fit into my phone, it would be great if we could get a full screen display without cropping out oyher parts of the screen All in all its good a very convenient


This app is good but I really don't understand what's happening right now.I logged out from my previous user and logged in with a new one yet I'm still not allowed to watch any show. Kindly assist!!!


In the last few week I havent been able to watch Catch Up on the app at all. And also the only way I can watch anything is by going into the tv guide section and warching a program from there. Weirdly enough though this afternoon it seemed all ok...but I logged in again now and all messed up?


It was perfect but over the past 3 or 4 months, there's been error codes preventing playback and for a while the app said that my device was already logged in so I couldn't watch anything. The bugs are a buzz kill.


I don't like the update. Please bring back the "Shows you're watching/Recently watched shows" on the catchup tab please. Now one has to search for the show they watched previously, its irritating.


Why on earth can I not enter my full password on the app?? I can only submit 15 characters and my password is longer???? How does that even happen?? I can log in perfectly fine when online


One fantastic app as I can catch up on what I missed while at work, the best part is I can watch my games live without missing out while on my way back from work.


Good improvements, but the app doesn't allow the viewing of live-TV, it says the device is currently registered to another user...it just pops up a video authorization error. On top of that the support team does not respond to query emails or even the live-chat.


I have changed my Package from Compact to Premium but on this app, the change has no effect and I can only watch 6 channels. On catchup, it shows only two tv shows. So Dissapointed, Hurt and Traumatized. Now I can't watch the Rugby World cup bcoz of this. Whenever I try to whatch channels that are on Premium package, it says they are not availble on my Dstv Package. ,💔💔💔😥😞😢😢😢😢😢


Keep getting a login error while my details are correct... Need to download the app again to resolve this. Also, my password doesn't match my login details most of the time. I need to reset my password numerous times... But when the app allows me to login it works well.


Mostly a great app. Just not a very reliable TV Guide. Often gives 403 error so makes it difficult to plan a days viewing. Would have 5 stars if it wasn't for that


the app has been working properly until today when I wanted to watch my TV and the app keeps asking me to create a profile. when I tap save nothing happens and it is not giving access to anything


You deserve a negative rating, not even 1 star. If it's technicians find better ones. After your so-called update, I can't download anymore. because watching live has always been a waste of time even if you have the required 4Mbps or above, it just keep buffering. If you manage to download it still requires mobile data to watch those downloads. It's f****ng annoying.😂😂😂😂 but then again this is a South African app, none of them really works accordingly. Just data consuming schemes


Since new update keeps giving error codes and can't connect. Please fix urgently. Missing a lot of stuff whilst you brag with a non-existent service on TV. Edit: Fixed, but now the server overload has become a big problem. Not anticipating the rugby streaming demands!


Everything is great, the app layout, quality option to view and download but why can't I find all my channels? Thought it was suppose to show you the exact subscription same as the one on the decoder? Pls rectify this, thank you..
