DSTV is a satellite television service that allows viewers to watch live TV directly from their computer or mobile device without having to pay subscription fees. This is done through a set top box called a dongle. The dongle connects to your broadband internet connection and then connects to the DStv platform. You can view content from over 20 different channels including local South African channels.

Click ‘Activate’ and wait for the activation code to appear on screen. This code will enable you to watch live TV from that day onwards. If you have any issues with the installation, you can always call in the professional DSTV installers. It would be best to contact them before they come to your home because DSTV installation prices vary from case to case.
