You know how it goes: Dad wants to watch SuperSport, Mom can’t get enough of Harvey in Suits and the sound of Minions is the soundtrack to your stay-at-home family weekends. It’s the war of the remote, but it doesn’t need to be.
Did you know that if you’re a DStv subscriber, you can download the DStv Now app to your smartphone or tablet and watch your favourite shows online? Just add Wi-Fi!
There are no extra costs involved to watch DStv on your devices. You’re already paying a monthly subscription, all you need is an internet connection.
Here’s how it works
Go online to or download the DStv Now app. Follow the prompts to create a username and password, and ta-dah, you can watch DStv on any device.
We know what you’re thinking, and yes, you can share your logins with your family! Here’s what the set-up would look like if everyone in the fam was watching:
Device 1: TV You already have your DStv decoder hooked up to your TV; that’s one screen right there. But the struggle is real and not everyone wants to watch Storage Wars all weekend.
Device 2: Laptop Go online to and log in with your username and password. Just about everything on DStv is also available on the app, whether it’s live sport or a series you’re obsessed with. There are even full seasons and box sets.
Device 3: Smartphone Download the DStv Now app (there’s one for Apple devices on the iOS store and for Android devices on the Google Play Store), log in and get streaming.
Device 4: Tablet The DStv Now app works on most tablets, exactly the same way it works on a smartphone. You can also download episodes to your devices and watch them later when you’re not on Wi-Fi.
Device 5: Smart TV Did you know that you can watch DStv on a big screen without a decoder? It’s totally possible if you have a smart TV, which is a TV that connects to the internet. The DStv Now app is available for Apple TV, Samsung smart TVs, LG smart TVs, and Android TV media players.
So many devices, so many series to binge-watch!

Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) fine on MTN Nigeria is very damaging to the country, Zainab Ahmed, finance minister has said.

This came as the telco confirmed it was continuing to hold talks with Nigerian officials to find a mutually acceptable solution to a dispute over the alleged transfer of $8.1 billion of funds. Ahmed, speaking at the 24th Nigerian Economic Summit in Abuja on Tuesday, said the CBN and MTN are working together towards resolving the matter.

The CBN handed MTN a fine of $10b alongside some banks for allegedly issuing irregular certificates of capital importation (CCIs). 

“The MTN incident was a very damaging one for us, that was one of the reasons why we have been out trying to engage investors,” Ahmed said.

“But you see, there is a tendency for big business to take regulations and governments for granted.

“After that incident happened, all the information the CBN has been trying to get in two months actually came. Now, they have almost solved the problem.”

According to her, “We are trying to make sure this doesn’t happen again, we are continuously discussing with monetary authorities.

“There will be no company next after MTN, nobody is next because we can’t afford for this kind of incidence to keep happening.”

Elsewhere, MTN said this week that it was continuing to hold talks with Nigerian officials to find a mutually acceptable solution to a dispute over the alleged transfer of $8.1 billion of funds.

“Shareholders are advised to continue to exercise caution when dealing in the company’s securities until a further announcement is made,” MTN said in a statement on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, where its shares are listed.
