Thread: Media box for DSTV Now

  1. #1

    Default Media box for DSTV Now

    Hi all

    Looking for a suggestion for media box to run DSTV now. Nothing too top of the range.
    Anyone have experience with the MXQ brand?
    Specific model numbers?

    I do realise I have to sideload the app.
    Also, are the mygica older models worth it? The 585 582 models?

    I am currently testing an entry level TV box that has Android 7.1.2 to try get it to work. It is the closest I have got thus far. Hope to have feedback in the next few days if I can get it to work. Device is not rooted but seems to have the SU files lying around so DSTV Now picks up the file and refuses to play video.

    Thanks. Does the app still need to be sideloaded though on this?

    No download it from the play store
    It's easy to think that religion is a lie when all I see is the hypocrite through the splinters in my eyes.

    What is weird that my phone with Android 7.0 shows it in the play store but the X96 Mini TV Box does not. Wonder if it is not supported on Android 7.1.2. Still need to find a fix. Gonna be a bit of a long process...
