Hi guys.

I'm unable to cast Dstv Now app to my first gen Chromecast as of today.

I get a white horizontal line across my TV.

The Chromecast works fine with other casting services. I did however reset it and reinstalled the Now App as well.

Is anyone possibly experiencing the same?
I'm not in the mood to contact Multichoice.

Thanks :)

DStv (Not Right) Now (Maybe Later) has been discontinued on Chromecast due to the ongoing rights dispute with Alphabet Inc.

Time to upgrade to LIT?

Joking right? Probably a temporary glitch.

Source?

Chromecast 3rd generation not working here, haven't tested the 2nd generation ones yet.

If anyone contacts them, please post back.
I'm definitely not in the mood for this.

Made you look! :p
During any call with frontline staff you have to pronounce it correctly - in this case that would be:

"e-Chromecast"
Lol maybe if I said my DStv was on lockdown I would have got a better response

Yip. My chromecast says "Something went wrong" when trying to connect via the DSTV now app
I see on their FB page others are mentioning it too.

‘HEY GOOGLE’ VIRTUAL EVENT: NEW ASSISTANT ABILITIES FOR MANUFACTURERS, NO NEW CHROMECAST FOR USERS

-----------------

No " Sabrina " yet today!

Will have to wait for that upgrade with the physical remote if wanting to then.

No problems here
Which version of the DSTV Now app are you using? and is it iOS or Android?
Version info is under "About" in the Settings menu.

Mine is 2.2.28 - 217020228 on Android, and Chromecast functionality is broken. Play Store says last updated on 24 June.
