Default DSTV Now and Apple 4K

I bought myself an Apple 4K to stream DSTV now via the app. I am been searching for a solutions but nothing.

So this is my dilemma:

I got an iPhone 6s, Apple 4K, Sony TV (oldish), but everytime I try to airplay the stream to the TV it shows airplay connected on the app, but just a black screen with no sound on the TV. Tried various channels also, still same issue. Can airplay videos and things on the phone.

Your assistance would be highly appreciated.

You have to pick airplay from within the DStv Now app, not via the normal method. Once in the app, start Airplay via the little icon bottom right (triangle on a rectangle). Just tested with the same phone and an older Apple TV

Hi SeriesGuy,


We're sorry for the delayed response. Kindly use the AirPlay icon available on the play screen. It should be next to the minimise/maximise button.

Default DSTV Now app for Apple TV

When will there be a DSTV Now app available directly on the Apple TV instead of us having to use airplay from our IPhone??
