iDrifta is a mobile decoder for connecting iOS devices like the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch to DSTV Mobile. It is somehow similar to the USB Drifta, but instead of supporting a USB port it supports Apple’s 30-pin connector, which comes standard on older generation iOS devices. So far, the iDrifta does not support the new lightning connector, so you will need a 30-pin to Lightning Connector adapter to connect newer devices like the iPhone 5, iPad Mini, and iPad 4 to DSTV Mobile.
The Wired Drifta for iOS
The iDrifta supports the iPod Touch, iPhone, 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2, and iPad 3. With the help of a 30-pin to Lightning Connector adapter, which you have to buy separately it will support the iPhone 5, iPad Mini, and iPad 4. The iDrifta receives the DSTV Mobile signal on its built-in DVB-H receiver and connects to your iOS device via Apple’s standard 30-pin connector. The iDrifta currently costs 9,500 Naira.
With your iDrifta, you can watch up to 16 DSTV channels on your iOS devices. You can even watch for free if you are an active DSTV subscriber.
What about Coverage?
DSTV Mobile is not available everywhere. You need to be in a coverage area to watch TV on your device using an iDrifta. DSTV Mobile is only available in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Kaduna, Enugu, Onitsha, Asaba, Aba, Ibadan, and Benin. Watch up to 16 exciting TV channels covering a wide range of interests like news (eg. CNN), documentary (eg. NatGeo Wild), sports (eg. SuperSport3), music (eg. Sound City), movies (eg. MNET Series, Africa Magic), kids (eg, Disney Junior), and more. Buying a Drifta Wi-Fi or Drifta USB may come with 3 months free subscription.
Active DSTV subscribers get DSTV Mobile free on their mobile device. This offer (Free DSTV Mobile) is not available for subscribers of the DSTV Access Bouquet.
