To watch DSTV Mobile on BlackBerry phones, you require a DVB-H accessory called the Drifta. The Drifta receives DVB-H signals and broadcasts it to your BlackBerry phone over Wi-Fi. You also need to download and install the Drifta app at the BlackBerry World Store. DSTV Mobile offers up to 16 exciting channels and you can access it free if you are an active DSTV subscriber. The Drifta costs around 12,250 Naira.
