You can now play DSTV OnDemand programs on your iPad.
It’s easy to setup and actually works perfectly well on a 4mb/sec MWEB ADSL line. All you need to do is register on the DSTV website. http://ondemand.dstv.com/
After the registration you will be sent an email. Following the basic instructions on the email DSTV send you, you will link your DSTV smart card number to this account. I would safely assume that this is how the application will determine what shows are available to you in the OnDemand section of the iOS application.
The DSTV application is available FREE from the South African App store. Once you have downloaded this on your iPad and logged in using your newly created account a new world of magic opens up to you.
But wait there is MORE:
The DSTV OnDemand selection on the iPad is much bigger than on your DSTV decoder’s OnDemand section. I was very pleasantly surprised to see a host of series and movies on the iPad OnDemand section that are not available when you check your DSTV decoder. The other killer feature is that every series lists its previous episodes. This makes it so easy and convenient to watch a couple of episodes in a series one after the other without having to hunt around. Given that without the ubiquitous adverts a series episode can easily finish within 35 minutes compared to the full 1 hour with adverts, this is a very tempting activity on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Multiple people can log into the DSTV app with the same account information. This will facilitate you, the wife and all the kids to have access to the series and movies on their individual iPads. GO ON admit: everyone in the family DOES have their OWN iPad.
Thank you DSTV.
You might have retained me as a client due to this breakthrough facility.
