Sherrif said that if they get to 300,ooo viewers after a year, he believes they would have done well.
I read that as 300 ... nice set the bar low

They dont even answer their own FAQs.

While saying that, I welcome any competition.

Opportunity missed.

Would have been nice if they had all the Openview channels on streaming at least but instead they have shows no one watch and let's just say you wanted to watch something in Afrikaans well sorry for you all the Afrikaans shows is premium only. No surprise there.

This can't even compare to Showmax Mobile and Netflix mobile at R39 and R49 respectively.

The key to the whole streaming thing on SA TV (sport included) looks like allowing encryption on the coming set top boxes for digital tv. New minister... gives me hope ... But this is the ANC...

No support for Android TV?
Google Play says my device (Telkom LIT) is not compatible.

Dstv.. sounds like the audio is being played from a cellphone into an empty can, recorded at the lowest bitrate, treble pushed to the highest and then added to the video..
Same on my Explora. eTV Movies channel sounds like bootleg garbage DVDs people passed around in the early 2000s.
