Want to watch What You Want, When You Want? Well, we have an app for that!

DStv Now

Adding to the range of information, education and entertainment on DStv, subscribers are now accessing more content such as sport, films and TV series with the anytime-anywhere DStv Now app.

Liz Dziva, publicity and public relations manager of MultiChoice Zimbabwe, said the app was free for DStv customers, allowing them to access the DStv Guide and search for desired viewing content by laptop, tablet or smartphone.

“The app facilitates easier viewing with much less admin involved and, of course, DStv Now is transforming the way we enjoy DStv content,” she said.

Live streaming is one of the major advantages of the app, and the return of live football means matches from the English Premier League and Spanish LaLiga can be viewed on SuperSport 3 and SuperSport 7. Series and films can be accessed through the DStv Catch Up option on the app, allowing viewing of shows viewers may have missed.

“While anyone can download DStv Now, you do need a DStv login to access the app. The content available for viewing or download will then depend on your subscription,” said Ms Dziva.

Blogger, actor and radio personality Larry Kwirirayi is a great fan.

“I have not been watching TV from the screen for months because DStv Now does exactly what it is supposed to do. And the new profile feature makes sure I watch what I like and don’t have to mix it up with other people. The app has also allowed me to enjoy the content I like on the go, it’s even better when going on a trip. I download shows before I leave and watch them at my destination even when there is no network.’ 

Terrence Mapurisana, a well-known entertainment journalist and station manager of ZBC’s Classic263 is equally enthusiastic.

“It gives the luxury of viewing your favourite shows anywhere and at any time, and this really stands out for me. I am benefitting immensely from DStv Now as it allows me to access the programming that I enjoy on television such as my radio stations as well as radio news. Thanks to DStv Now, I can watch on the go away from home and not miss out on any action for purposes of my show. For me as an entertainment and news journalist, DStv Now has revolutionised my viewing experience.”

The DStv Now app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
