Default Watch DStv Now on the big screen with Google Chromecast

DStv Now let’s you watch what you want, when you want it. Available as either an app or via your desktop browser, you can watch Live TV, enjoy DStv Catch Up content (via streaming or download), manage your account or see the full DStv TV Guide on the go.

Up until now, you could only view content on your cellphone, tablet or computer but that’s all about to change! Thanks to the new Google Chromecast functionality on the DStv Now Android app, you can “cast” your live streaming DStv channels, Catch Up videos or your choice of our 1 000 M-Net Movies Collection titles onto your TV!

And it’s easy to do. Just:
- Connect your Android device to a WiFi network
- Open the DStv Now app and select the content you want to watch
- Press the “Cast” button in the app
- Enjoy your viewing on the big screen

“DStv Now offers our customers the convenience of choosing what they want to watch when they are ready,” says Graeme Cumming, head of DStv Digital Media. “The option to share content from mobile devices to TV’s is something our customers have been asking for for, for a while. We’re currently working on securing the rights to perform similar functions using Apple AirPlay.”

DStv customers who use DStv Now have access to a wealth of content ranging from sport to movies, thanks to more than 60 streaming channels. There’s also ‘Express from the US’ featuring shows such as Suits, Crashing, Girls, Homeland, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and Lucifer. Remember to keep an eye on the DStv Catch Up calendar, available on, to find out what to watch.

The DStv Now app is free to download on the Google
Play Store or Apple App Store or you can watch by pointing your browser to Live channels and DStv Catch Up content is currently available to all DStv Premium customers, and will be available to Extra and Compact customers during the first quarter of the new financial year. Data costs will apply when streaming content.
