Android Phones and Tablets do not come with DVB-H receivers built-in, so you need an additional accessory to watch TV on your Android devices. The accessory, called a DSTV Mobile Wi-Fi Drifta, receives DSTV Mobile signals and broadcasts it to your Android Phone and Tablet over Wi-Fi.

A Note on Android Fragmentation

Although, Drifta Viewer for Android app should supported Android 2.2, 2.3, 3.x and 4.2.2, due to fragmentation in the Android platform and OEM customisations, a number of Android phones and tablets running the stated Android versions do not support the DSTV Mobile app. Some consumers have complained about this issue.

To be on a safe side, ensure your Android device is compatible before buying the DSTV Mobile Drifta.

Drifta not just for Android

One great thing about the Drifta is that you can use it for other devices like laptops, smartphones, and tablets. It must not be an Android phone or tablet. As long as the device has Wi-Fi and you install the applicable App or software on your device a Wi-Fi drifta will allow you access DSTV Mobile on multiple devices.
