@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.
@DigitalFanYou can still download the DStv Now App without a DStv subscription. However you will only have access to Free-to-air channels.
Hi Thoko - Thanks for your reply - but my question was can you still subscribe to say compact plus and watch it on dstv now app without a satellite dish and smart card

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
