The DStv Now application is only supported on Google-certified Android TV boxes, meaning viewers who use unofficial Android devices could have issues accessing the app. The DStv Now app no longer works on certain Android media boxes, following a version update.
DStv Now app automatically blocks streaming on uncertified devices, which are relatively common in South Africa. Google-certified media boxes available in South Africa include the Telkom LIT, Mi Box, and Nvidia Shield devices.
MultiChoice responded to all complaints on its Play Store page by stating that “For legal reasons, the DStv Now app is no longer available on uncertified Google devices”. “We do support Android TV boxes as long as it operates through officially-certified and approved devices,” said MultiChoice
