Watch TV on the Move
DSTV offers devices to enable you easily watch DSTV. You can go for the handheld TV called, Walka, which is available in 3.5-inch and 7-inch models or you can use your existing mobile device if it has a supported port. For example, if you have any device with USB and runs Windows or Mac, you can use the DSTV Drifta USB to connect your device to DSTV Mobile.
Similarly, if your device supports Wi-Fi and runs Windows, Mac, BlackBerry, Android, iOS, etc, you can connect to DSTV Mobile using a DSTV Wi-Fi Drifta. The Wi-Fi drifta is the method of choice for connecting your tablets and smartphones to DSTV Mobile.
Watch up to 16 DSTV channels free on DSTV mobile. Channels available include news, documentary, sports, music, movies, entertainment, and so on. To enjoy DSTV Mobile free on your mobile device, you have to link your mobile device to your DSTV TV subscription account. Visit a DSTV outlet to link your mobile device.
Interested users who do not subscribe to DSTV on TV can also enjoy DSTV mobile. However, it is not free for them, though DSTV offers 3 months free DSTV Mobile subscription, if you buy a DSTV Mobile device from any of their authorised outlets in Nigeria. Monthly subscription ranges from free (NTA & AIT) to 660 Naira (14 channels).
DSTV Mobile Coverage

So, whether free or paid, you have to be in any of these cities before you can access DSTV Mobile. Note that coverage may be poor in some locations in the cities listed above.
