How to watch DStv on your phone or online

There is no extra cost to watch DStv on your phone or online, you just need to be a DStv subscriber and have Wi-Fi or mobile data.

Here’s how it works

  1. Go online to now.dstv.com or download the DStv Now app from the Google Play or Apple App store.
  2. Create a username and password OR log in using your DStv details. 
  3. Go to Live, find the Mzansi Magic channel (161) and start watching Idols live.
  4. If you missed the latest episode of Idols, it’s available to watch in the DStv Now app as well — just go to Catch Up.

PLUS download episodes to watch later

One of the best things about using DStv Now is downloading episodes to watch on your phone. Download the latest episode of Idols while you’re on Wi-Fi, then watch the episodes later while you’re offline.

If you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, use mobile data while watching DStv via the app. MTN, Vodacom and Telkom all have data bundles for video streaming that are super cost-effective and give you more data to watch videos on your phone.
