DStv Now app for Xbox and Hisense TVs


DStv Now is becoming more and more popular, with over two million plays of Live and Catch Up content a week. This is set to increase with the release of two new big-screen TV apps.

The following apps are now available for watching DStv Now on big-screen TVs:

  • Xbox gaming consoles (Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X) --- NEW
  • Hisense smart TVs (selected models from 2018 onwards) --- NEW
  • Samsung smart TVs (selected models from 2015 onwards)
  • LG smart TVs (models running webOS 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0)
  • Apple TV (4th generation and newer)
  • Media players running Android TV (Google-certified devices only)

To use DStv Now on any of these devices, first, make sure the device is connected to the internet (you need data access to watch DStv Now) and also have a computer, tablet or mobile phone ready (you need this to complete the login process).

How to watch DStv Now on a big-screen TV

  1. Connect the smart TV / media player / gaming console to the internet.
  2. Go to the device’s app store, search for “DStv Now” and install the app (if the app is not visible then either the device is not supported or the device app store is set to a different country).
  3. Once installed, a 5-digit code will be displayed on the TV screen.
  4. Open a web browser (using a computer, tablet or smartphone), go to now.dstv.com and log in (if not yet registered, hit “Get started” and follow the instructions).
  5. Once logged in, go to now.dstv.com/tv, enter the code displayed on the TV and then click on “Sign in on TV”.
  6. DStv Now will automatically launch on the TV.
