ANNOUNCEMENT

Update: Drifta Android application

DStv Mobile is excited to announce the significant developments that have been made with the Drifta DStv Mobile decoder application for Android devices. The Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy SII and the Samsung Galaxy TAB 7" are now compatible with the Drifta.

This comes just in time for the Rugby World Cup to be played in New Zealand kicking off on 09 September.

Most Rugby World cup games will be played during South African working hours; however Bokke fans don’t have an excuse to miss out on any of the games as DStv Mobile will be broadcasting ALL games live to DStv Mobile compatible devices.

Compatible Android devices can easily access DStv Mobile by downloading the DStv Mobile decoder application from the Android market; the application is free to download. The application will also be available from the Samsung apps store soon.


Once downloaded, the Android viewing device needs be paired to the Drifta and then mobile TV viewing can begin instantly. Great content is on offer in the genres of sport, music, general entertainment, cartoons and news.

DStv Mobile plans to make the Drifta application compatible with as many Android devices as possible and further testing will continue with other Android devices.

Since DStv Mobile launched the Drifta in November 2010, the device has been compatible with iOS devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad) and PCs and laptops.

DStv Premium subscribers do not have to pay subscription costs to access DStv Mobile. All other users will pay a nominal subscription fee of R36 per month. Coverage is available in the 9 major cities of South Africa, visit www.dstvmobile.com for detailed coverage information.

@Iceman, At present the Drifta is only compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy SII and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7". Please can you confirm which advertisement you feel was false advertising as we would like to look into the matter and clarify our position.

Great to finally have Android on board, when do you expect to have HTC compatibility? I hope you're testing some of my HTC's being the Desire HD and the Incredible S..
