Did you know that you can watch DSTV free on Android – but that’s if you only want to catch up with the latest on DSTV program TV guide?
Okay, that obviously not what many DSTV users want to hear. I was in the same shoe, I liked DSTV, wanted to keep up with CNN chatters – and Naga Munchetty’s BBC breakfast.
To do that, I had to have the app on my android device right – and stream all the way. Plus, it would be better to throw the bouquet talks out through the window.

So, like a typical Google kangaroo, I reached out to my android device and quickly searched for that.
“How to watch DSTV free on Android”
Weew! There the answers were. I got some pretty suggestions.
But did they work?
Suggestion 1: Watch DSTV free on Android with USTV?
I quickly hurried over to the Android play store in search for the cool app (USTV). Sure, it would knock that freak out of Multichoice and stream the freaking channels on my itel A11 Android device (Don’t smirk guys ).
Here are the steps I was meant to take.
a. Go to Google Play store and search for the USTV app
b. Install the app by clicking by clicking the Open button
c. Lunch USTV, select a channel and Boom DSTV!
Did it work?
Sadly, I never even bothered anyway, seeing the users’ review for the app. Let’s see the screenshot:
So, basically, that means you can’t watch DSTV on this app guys.

Suggestion 2 – Watch DSTV free on Android using Livestream?
Now, while searching for Mobdr0 app, a particular app jumped right in my face – and yes, with some nice reviews: The Livestream TV app.
I got to try that out.
I downloaded Livestream right away and installed it on my android device. Yes, that looked kind of promising – and it had a set of nice channels to watch, but nothing particularly related to DSTV.
In fact, Livestream is basically a video-sharing app where anyone can create a channel and upload nice videos. So, I couldn’t stream DSTV on Android using Livestream app.
Last Trial: How to watch DSTV free on Android with DSTV NOW
Still on the search to watch DSTV channels on my android device free. I decided to try out the official DSTV android application – the DSTV NOW.
Okay, for the strangers in Moscow. The DSTV NOW is an official Android application that lets you stream DSTV channels on the go with your smartphone or laptop devices.
You can easily download the DSTV NOW app from Google’s Andorid play store.
So, let’s see how it went wit:
a. Go to Google play store and search for DSTV NOW. The DSTV Now app currently has up to 5 million users. So, I guess it must ‘ve got some great chips up its sleeves.
b. Download and install DSTV Now application on my android device. The installation took just a couple of seconds to complete.
c. To launch the app after the installation process was complete, I clicked on the green colored Open button and then BOOM!
d. Login or Register on DSTV connect.
e. If you’re a DSTV user, you can just click on the “I have DSTV” button.
But since I was trying to hack my way into streaming DSTV channels on my device free of charge, I instantly hit on the “Watch free” button and completed the registration process.
Confirm the registration. I got a message sent into my inbox. I instantly jumped into my Gmail inbox, hit on the confirmation link and activated my new DSTV connect account.

Did it work?
Yes, you can stream any DSTV channel on your Android device using DSTV NOW – but only with a DSTV bouquet linked to your new DSTV NOW [ DSTV connect ] account.
In fact, you can do lots of interesting stuff like DSTV catch up which enables you to schedule the recording of any DSTV series on your DSTV explorer by linking the explorer to your Android device via the internet.
But, like I said, that’s only after linking your DSTV bouquet with your DSTV connect account. So, even with the official DSTV android streaming app, I couldn’t get a free lunch in Freetown.
Nevetheless, a free DSTV Connect account doesn’t mean that your DSTV Now app only displays a blank screen though.
Okay, you can still watch a DSTV Channel on it all for free – but guess what? That’s the DSTV guide.
Meanwhile, the DSTV TV guilde is just an official DSTV channel that updates you the latest series, episodes and programs and their scheduled broadcast times on different premium channels.
So, let’s call it a boring panda.
Wheew! So, with DSTV, I couldn’t get a free lunch even in Freetown?
Finally – Stream DSTV Channels free on Android using Mobdro
I heard about Mobdro App, so I checked it out on the Android play store to see the kind of stunt I could pull with this hulk.
Now, the app was not even listed on Android play store.
So, can you watch DSTV on android device using Mobdro?
Here’s a work around.
NOTE: By default, Mobdro is not supported by Android OS due to media copyrighted issues. Hence, to use the app on Android OS, you need to allow installation from unknown sources on your android device.
So, if you still want to go ahead, here are the steps to watch DSTV channels free on Mobdro.
1. Enable Unknown sources: To do that, go to Settings. Scroll down to “Unknown sources” and tab on the key.

Alternatively, you can search for any DSTV shows of your interest and stream live.
Interesting right? Many of these channels belong to the normal DSTV premium packages.
