Follow these steps to set yourself up with the Netflix, Showmax and DStv Now app on your Android smartphone or tablet in South Africa, and then get streaming.
The Showmax app is available for Android phones and tablets running Android 4.4.0 or higher.
First, sign up to Showmax on the Showmax website using your web browser.
The next step is to get the free app for your device from the Google Play Store. Here’s how.
You may find that the Showmax app requests your permission to access the microphone of your device as the app supports voice search. This is optional, and can be turned on or off by going to system settings.
The DStv Now app is completely free and available to all DStv subscribers, across all packages. The app gives subscribers access to the same DStv channels they’d have on their Explora, so they can watch when they are on the go, on their Android smartphones or tablets.
With the DStv Now app, DStv subscribers are able to stream live shows or to watch content on Catch Up on demand once it’s already aired. It’s also possible to download series episodes and movies onto a smartphone or tablet using the app to be watched offline later.
Here’s how to get the app. Remember that it is only available to DStv subscribers.
First, sign up to Netflix on the Netflix site.
Then download the app from the Google Play Store, and log in with the details you used when you signed up.
Then, get streaming. It’s that simple.
