Re: DStv Now App subscription without Satellite

@DigitalFan At the moment services can only be activated on a decoder. For a decoder to work you need the whole installation which includes the satellite dish. So at the moment we don't have the option for subscription only on the DStv Now App.

In theory you don't need a dish but currently do you need an ACTIVE DSTV subscription/smartcard to get access to DSTV Now. There are indications this might change - possibly even this year.

I only have Showmax and a DStv connect ID linked to a smart card but I would like to know if you can subscribe to DStv Now ( For Live Channels) without a satellite dish. Look forward to replies
