Entertainment on the go is now very possible with most of the traditional streaming services fully available on your mobile. A case in example is the DStv Now platform that lets you watch all your entertainment from wherever you are.
To use the DSTV Now App, you must be an active DSTV Subscriber with an active package that could be a premium, compact, or family bouquet. Using the DStv Now app, customers are able to watch the same Live channels and shows on Catch Up as they do via their decoders – the app makes it possible to also watch DStv on their smartphones, tablets, laptops, and smart TVs.
DStv Now bundles via MTN Mobile Money
These TV bundles allow customers to watch DSTV content directly using their phones on the DSTV Now App. To download the App, one visits the AppStore or PlayStore.
To purchase the DStv Now TV bundles via MTN Mobile money, you need to dial *165*4*7# to activate the bundle which is valid for up to 24 hours. You can keep tabs on how much of the bundle you have left by dialing *131*5#.
|Bundle duration||Bundle Price|

In case you missed it, MultiChoice Uganda has announced that effective September 1st, 2021, the DStv Uganda and GOtv Uganda offerings will see an increase in the monthly package prices. DStv prices, as with GOtv prices, always see such changes when it comes to the final third of the year. It is probably that time of the year when the parent company analyzes to check how much more it can make.
