Irritation and frustration Very poor. Doesn't let me watch all my channels. Gives pop-up message to state you must authorize the app before you can watch, but there is no such function on the device or the phone or the app. Then off course you can't get hold of dstv on their call centre, and their self service doesn't give assistance on the drifta decoder. So it's pretty useless overall. Bring on Netflix
Device not supported They can't make up their mind if my phone is supported or not. One day it is, the next it's not, a while later it is again. I never know if I will be able to use the app as it all depends on whether they decide my phone is supported at that time. Why do they even have a supported device list?? It either works or it doesn't. Can't use it on my tablet either as my tablet is rooted... This is so annoying!! I would not recommend a Drifta to anyone!!
Android gadgets not working This is bad. The Android app isn't working. It can't authenticate. And it can't connect... Rubbish service... Dstv mobile is the worst run multichoice department.... They need competition... From rubbish channels to useless apps... I wasted my money
Android Lollipop not supported device Installed app on Thursday to view world cup quarter finals on holiday. Tested fine. Now when I want to watch the All Blacks game - I get a device not supported error. Thanks for a crap product. Why so many security checks in place I will never understand...
Ultimate crap I have been using this App on both my ios and android devivices since the inception of drifta but suddenly it stoped workin, it says "cannot connect to the channel" I took my drifta in to be checked, wen they test it on laptop thru usb cable it works but not on my devises, was issued a new one but still the same. I think there is a problem with liking via WiFi. The developer needs to fix this with an update. I'm missing out a lot and also losing by paying for zero servive😠
Mike Mr Developer, I like the App, the App works fine on my Android device. Then I tried to connect a HDMI cable via MHL so I can see the screen on TV. that's when it shows this error message: An unsupported accessory has been attached to this Android device. please disconnect the accessory and try again. now can you please investigate and fix the bug if the there is no legal constrains behind it. it would be a nice feature.
HW Codec setting is defaulted to OFF to prevent the app from crashing on certain devices.
