    Crappiest app ever. I keep getting error 403. When I go on live chat to request help, the technicians reply an hour or two later. Worse part is that their messages don't pop up on my phone screen so I either have to stay on live chat for an hour or I miss their response and have to start all over again. Another issue is that there is no line you can call. The only way to get help is to go on live chat. Which is useless if you ask me. I'm so disappointed. And when we cancel our subscriptions...

  2. Pegasus 20-avatar

    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! Edit-Once again after update numerous login problems and error codes! Come on guys, why bugger up everything when you do updates!

  3. Jannie Kirsten-avatar

    I am grateful for the free access, but yoh, the app interface is extremely buggy at times. When watching a channel, half the time the interface is inaccessible, and the channel list unpopulated. Please fix. Definitely won't be fooled into paying for this half-baked app when covid is over. DStv really needs to step up its game and bring prices waaaay down before I would ever consider supporting their monopolistic bullsh!t.

  4. Dino Renald-avatar

    100%.. I love the fact that I can choose video quality when downloading. Also, the app is quite user friendly. I would suggest a one touch feature to play next episode when one episode ends, you know like Netflix. Otherwise this is super dope! Makes me proud to be South African. I wonder if international people can subscribe and watch the content. That would be super cool

  5. Sidney Lubis-avatar

    Since the most recent update one is unable to download. It gives a "Bad Request" error message after downloading approximately 99%. I've tested it on different devices and experience the same problem. To watch the downloaded percentage one has to stay connected to the internet. Please assist urgently.

  6. Sean Sloan-avatar

    I do not like giving poor ratings, but since I get no feedback from DSTV I am going to make one. The reason for this, you keep losing my profile and my list. Most of the time here is some code error with my list or it can olny display limited things I save and then I have to go and fish for them again. Fix the app and I'll fix this rating!

  7. Zola Ntolosi-avatar

    All of a sudden when travelling I discover that I can't watch all my shows, only extremely limited few with none in line with my preferences Less than 6 months later the same problem, having spoken to more than 6 different people since Friday none having resolved it. I get told it will be escalated, must wait another 48hrs

    I would not recommend this app. It keeps on telling me i cant register . It tells me that my device is currently registered to another user. I have also seen that other people have this problem. This is a problem and it needs to be fixed DSTV. If i could rate this app with 0 stars i would. This app needs work

    Good. 1). I would suggest that you make it possible to move from one channel another by swiping rather than clicking only. 2). To be able restart the app on screen when paused, without opening the app. 3). To be able to set notification for upcoming program(s).

  10. Tamil Williams-avatar

    I'm really disappointed, it freezes and takes time to load. It keeps on saying ' we're sorry, something went wrong ', but I have full internet connection. I barley watch movies and series on this app. I'm really disappointed.

  11. Gontse Mongale-avatar

    Well this app isn't actually that bad. So far am still enjoying it and still trying the features that it has. But apart from the data costs, that also you can decide on how much u will be willing to watch Catch-Ups for. Its a Great app to Install.

  12. Anja Strydom-avatar

    App keeps on saying "network error", and that I should check my internet connection even though I am connected to the internet. I was able to watch YouTube video's, but app keeps on glitching. This has been a problem for a long time and really takes away the joy and ease of use.

  13. Munch Maila-avatar

    Your High quality downloads are just as almost bad as the Medium ones. I feel cheated. What's going on?? & now everytime I try to download something, it says bad request at some point. After chowing my damn data. Fix it, & respond to this post. Y'all are too silent.

  14. Charmain Brits-avatar

    Catch-up is great, but watching on the phone is not. The app does not want to cast to the smart TV. Only the sound casts but no visuals. YouTube and all other videos casts fine. The app is not available on my Hisense smart TV.

    Great app. No glitches like I had when I was watching directly from the internet. The picture is perfect as well. Please make the app available for windows (if it is, please advise on what I need to do to download it). Keep up the good work!!!

  16. Lindani Mbele-avatar

    This app is complete nonsense because I can't even enter the app and watch something whilst my account is fully paid off. It keeps telling me that "there is something wrong and please try again later". If you want to spend your money on useful things, just go ahead and pay for Netflix

  17. MxoReloaded-avatar

    The app is simple, I basically walk around with my TV right inside my pocket. I see other people's reviews about getting challenges with the app, I've been using it for +/- 5 years now and I've never had any issues. Although there's plenty of room for improvement.

    I enjoy this app as it allows me finish watching movies when there's sudden power outage. The problem is I can't find ROK stations even though they are part of our subscription. Any reason for that??

  19. Isabel Magada-avatar

    When my downloaded watch later program is done downloading it just says,'bad request'.We are on Lockdown DSTV not all of us have television sets & data is expensive.I have logged out & updated the App still same thing.Can you fix this asap please.Watching my favourite TV shows on streaming is just too expensive.I also think that you doing it on purpose to stop the downloads so you can cash in on both downloads & streaming.Remember DSTV us choosing you doesn't mean that we are rich.

  20. Mo Vahed-avatar

    "Best" app in the world...🙄😒🙈 Never ever seems to work, esp when a user needs to watch live events ... 😡 Not to mention the amazingly delayed content that keeps getting re used over and over again... If you'd like to be let down, then this app is definitely for you..

    Exceptional, wonderful and greatest app in my smartphone. I have a mobile television wherever I go and can watch sport, movies, news etc everywhere I go and it's all thanks to Multichoice SA for making this possible as I spend most of my time away from home.

    What a terrible app after updating the live tv functionality does not work! Everytime i ask DSTV for assistance on Facebook im repeatedly told to clear cache and data! To uninstall and reinstall the app. This does not work as the issue is with your app. Please fix this bug!!!!

  23. MrDraven74-avatar

    I understand that this app has been designed around Google Certified Apps, but seriously, with Covid-19 and allowing South African to have 13 free channels to keep up to date with what is going on, I guarantee 70% of people are not using google certified Media boxes - SO THIS NEEDS TO BE ABLE TO NOT ONLY INSTALL BUT PLAYBACK VIDEO ON NON CERTIFIED DEVICES So trying to install this on my wife's phone (Samsung S9+) I get the message that this device is registered to another account, I see someone else posted the same thing "Seems like all the other people I have the same problem. When I want to watch something it keeps on telling me the device is registered to someone else and that I should login with that person's credentials." However, make the app work on non certified devices again and you would have a lot more users.

    I enjoy every bit of it thou it consumes alot of data... Just emprove a little bit more on the movie selection on Catch up... Spice it up with the recent ones. Its tiring watching the same old movies over and over again. Otherwise, ts very entertaining 😘

  25. Sine Xaba-avatar

    Sometimes the connection is very poor and all my shows disappear. I was also under the impression that the app can be used across 5 devices yet it keeps telling me I can't stream on more than 2

  26. Francis Kigai-avatar

    The App has been doing well for me until last week when it stopped updating the catch up prog. I've done everything including clearing data and cache, reinstalling the prog but all in vain.

  27. Abigail Annan-avatar

    I do enjoy catch up especially. Allows you to keep up with your favourite shows. If the episodes could stay longer and don't disappear after sometime. Thanks.

    I upgraded the app on my phone now i can not download my series to watch off line later. It downloads to a point then bombs out and says bad request. Very unhappy. And I do not recommend the upgrade...it sucks

  29. Yahyaa Bhattay-avatar

    For some reason I'm able to log in but when I select something to watch I am told that my device is registered to another user and I need to log in with those credentials. Please look into this.

    Apart from the connectivity and quality issues when blowing up from the laptop, I think it's ok. The quality and connectivity on the phone though is 100%

  32. Ian Kamau-avatar

    Works well when casting. However, as much as one changes the password on the Account, there are still unwanted devices and profiles that access the account. There is a small flaw on the content

  33. LF Taukobong-avatar

    The app is malfunctioning since Monday, I am unable to download as I had been doing in the past. I am considering unsubscribing from dstv as it fails to provide the service I am paying for.

    Dear DSTV, on my TV box there is no live TV... My app on phone just does not open... Streaming is a nightmare, buffering all the time, 1 hour show takes 2... Not a pleasure to watch. Whereas Showmax and YouTube will play with no issues. Can you please upgrade?

  35. Wendy Marcus-avatar

    Because Im a student, Im not able to watch TV almost never. DSTV app is a breath of fresh air because I dont need to be infront of the TV to be able to watch what I want. Im able to watch when I want and where I want with a good wifi connection

  36. Peter Smart-avatar

    It's so sweet. But minimize the rate of data consumption since I paid for subscription already on my decoder, I still have to use my data at high consumption rate.

    Sometimes it throws an error and requires you to close the app and open it again, besides that it's a good app to have.

And it helps me to manage my data. I just recommend that the developer of this app to add something similar to the explora eg box office and the pause and rewind tools, it would be more nice.

    I would not recommend using DSTV now as the app and the website hardly ever work. There is always the same error message no matter what you do to try to fix it. I have tried every possible way to try to remove the error (even though it clearly states that it is a error that has occurred on their side). I have deleted and re-downloaded the app, restarted my device, tried using the website and nothing has worked. Please fix whatever issues you have with your server or if you are unable to provide quality streaming at all times (not partially) remove this feature all together. It is honestly frustrating not being able to watch a soccer match because the app can't do its one job.

    This app used to be great, it's appalling how they have made so much restrictions on how it functions and also the multi user functions. Used to be able to use all 5 devices to stream different programs/shows at the same time and now they only allow two out of the four registered devices to stream. Considering the fact that I am a premium subscriber to DSTV I feel that I'm not getting my money's worth in this regard. I think the restrictions should be implemented for non premium subscribers.

  87. Priscilla Vos-avatar

    TV Guide constantly says"Sorry something went wrong. Try again in a few minutes." Many minutes later still can't open TV guide. I have a fast and strong fibre connection so that is NOT the problem . It is now 23 March 2920. Thus app had improved but now the same problem as I reported above last year has recorded. Please sort this out again and ensure it does not recur. It is not my fibre connection as all other internet functions are working well

  88. Vusi Nyembe-avatar

    Its good, works pretty well, but you need to have decent connection. Besides that I like it. Only thing is that I tried using the app on my laptop but it didn't work, I tried asking the consultants about how I should go about this and my issue was never addressed even after asking different customer service individuals countless times and that is why I give them a four star. Turns out all I had to do was use the normal web browser instead of the ad blocker browser.

  89. Tanya Truter-avatar

    In the beginning it was a good app could dowload and see everything that I could with my decoder. But pretty soon it gives problem, it doesn't always allow you to watch the downloaded things after I have downloaded them, especially when there is no mobile data. Then it randomly logs out. Since today it only gives me shows on catchup that isn't even in my language or even a quarter of the movies or series that I can see on the catch up on my tv. It also doesn't open the live tv. tab.
