Remember Apple and Android is 2 very different systems. So what's easy for Android might not be for Apple. And otherwise round

For now only Chromecast on Android is available. We're working on getting Chromecast on iOS and Airplay available very soon (talking about no more than 2 months to be safe).

Works perfectly! May be something obvious to say but you must have Google home installed as an app to see the cast button on the dstv now app.

Please please also update the ios /Apple version to have chromecast functionality.

Cool, good for you

Well done DSTV for bringing this feature. I had some issues with casting catch up sports episodes (error message: 'there was a problem with the video') but working this morning again. Very happy customer here!

Question for both Chromecast and Airplay.

The streaming options give no indication of SD or HD.

Although, from the data rate, I'm guessing we are limited to SD and 2 channel sound?

AirPlay (and I'm almost certain Chromecast) are capable of HD and multi channel sound.
