How to download with the DStv app
Subscribers to DStv may not know that they have access to the entire DStv offering on their phones, laptops, gaming consoles and even smart TVs.

Even better, the mobile app allows users to download up to 25 items to phones and tablets to watch offline – no internet needed.
