MultiChoice has revealed its DStv Now mobile application for Android and iOS devices which is set to launch before the end of November 2014.
“It’s pretty stable and works pretty well already, but we want to squash a last few bugs,” DStv Digital Media CEO John Kotsaftis said at a launch event in Johannesburg on Wednesday, 12 November 2014.
The app offers DStv Premium subscribers with PVR access the ability to watch DStv Catch Up content on their mobile devices, and lets them stream a number of channels live over the Internet.
All the sports channels, M-Net, and the M-Net movies channels will be available to stream through DStv Now.
Subscribers to any bouquet with PVR access and an Explora decoder that is connected to the Internet will also be able to set recordings remotely from the app.
Asked about the minimum requirements of the app, Kotsaftis said they support down to the oldest iPad 2 and Android devices running at least the 4.1 “Jelly Bean” version of the mobile operating system.
