Online activations and new apps from DStv Mobile


DStv Mobile has made it even easier for subscribers to access the DStv Mobile service. From 30 November 2011, subscribers can activate their DStv Mobile device Online by visiting the website here, and following a few simple steps.

Previously, devices could only be activated telephonically through the MultiChoice call centre. With the introduction of online activations consumers now have a convenient, quick way to activate their device at any time.

To access the online activation service, a DStv Connect account is required; this can be created by here. The activation service is available to all DStv Mobile subscribers and can be used to activate the Drifta, Drifta USB and the Walka TV. 

Other developments at DStv Mobile include the introduction of new applications. To make the DStv Mobile Streaming service on mobile operator portals easier to access, DStv Mobile has created a bookmark application for Java ME, BlackBerry, and Android devices. The application is currently available for free from the Android Market, and the Vodacom apps store. More stores will be added soon.

The Walka TV’s availability from 01 December and; the Drifta’s compatibility with Mac OS X and select Android devices gives consumers even more ways to access great DStv content this festive season and beyond. (The Mac OS X app is available in the Mac app store).

DStv Mobile coverage is available in the 9 major cities of South Africa. DStv Premium subscribers pay no subscription cost to access DStv Mobile.
