  1. Yes, but what do you need to qualify to use this service? Can any DStv subscriber use it? Which countries is it available?
    Have you tested it? Why no screenshots from your own device?
    I ask this because I tried this app myself last year and streaming wasn’t available for customers outside South Africa. The only useful features were schedules and resetting decoders.
