How to use My List in DStv Now

Use watchlists to keep track of the shows you’d like to watch and plan your streaming.

DStv Now recently launched a watchlist feature that makes it easy to bookmark a show to watch later.

What is a watchlist?

A watchlist feature makes it easier for users to keep track of TV shows and movies they want to watch while they’re browsing Catch Up in DStv Now. Each profile has its own watchlist, called My List, and users can add series, movies, sports shows and kids’ shows to it.
