Anyone have any info about what netblocks/ports DSTV uses to stream over the web (mainly supersport)?

I want to redirect traffic over a "non fiber" link which I can do by source port, destination port and/or IPs.

Tired of the "tennis" sucking up gigs on our fiber connection and would rather it go over DSL.

You will probably have to do by IP address. This is what I have found

SOURCE - ANY
PORT - ANY

DEST - 197.80.203.0/24
PORT - ANY

Or you can just route the 2 (supersport & now.dstv.com) ip's via the ADSL.

Code:
anton@anton-mint:~$ dig dstv.com

The website address IPs may be available, however the streaming happens from Akamai port 80 for both the website and the mobile app. So unless you divert all akamai traffic over the DSL, you will find it very hard to do based on ipaddress/port basis.
