I see we now get told which browsers to use in order to watch any catch up or live stream.

One of the browsers suggested is Opera 33+ on Windows 10+. I currently use Opera 43.0 which is the latest version yet still get a message to "upgrade" my browser.

Is this still a glitch that needs to be ironed out or are we going to be forced to use Chrome, Firefox or Edge?

MC will never learn.

That is why I gave up completely with their DSTV Now services in any form whatsoever.

Their system is just not fast enough to keep up with the developments in Browsers and versions because they still do not adhere to open standards.

I am using a Chromebook running Chrome OS. I updated my Chrome browser to version 58 and DSTV Now stopped working. The strange thing is that Catch-up TV worked just fine. I had to roll back my browser to a previous version to get DSTv Now working again. I wish MC would fix this.
