How to Watch DSTV Mobile on your Computer

To watch DSTV Mobile on your laptop or desktop computer, you need to buy either a DSTV Mobile Drifta Wi-Fi or a DSTV Mobile USB Drifta from a DSTV outlet. The USB Drifta is cheaper at a price of 8,500 Naira. However, we recommend the more expensive (12,250 Naira) Wi-Fi Drifta because of its versatility. While the USB Drifta can only enable you watch DSTV Mobile on Windows and Mac based laptops and desktops, the Drifta Wi-Fi adds support for smartphones and tablets like the Android, BlackBerry, WP, Symbian, etc.

Note that while the USB Drifta connects your computer via a USB port, the Wi-Fi Drifta requires a computer with Wi-Fi support.

Then you need to install the DSTV Mobile for the operating system on your laptop or desktop computer. For Windows based computers, install the DSTV Mobile software (driver) via a CD that comes with the device or you can also download it at the DSTV Mobile website. For Mac based computers like the Macbook Pro, visit the Mac App Store to search and download the DSTV Mobile software. Once you successfully install the software, you can now watch DSTV Mobile on your computer.

DSTV Mobile is not available everywhere in Nigeria. To enjoy DSTV on your laptop or desktop computer, you have to be located in a DSTV Mobile coverage area. DSTV Mobile is only available in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Kaduna, Enugu, Onitsha, Asaba, Aba, Ibadan, and Benin. Note that coverage may be poor in some locations in the cities listed above.

DSTV Mobile offers up to 16 DSTV channels. Channels available include news, documentary, sports, music, movies, entertainment, and so on. Two channels are free (NTA and AIT), but DSTV offers 3 months free DSTV Mobile subscription, if you buy a Drifta Wi-Fi or a Drifta USB decoder from any of their authorised outlets in Nigeria. Monthly subscription ranges from free (for active DSTV subscribers) to 660 Naira (14 channels).

Watch DSTV Free on Laptop/Desktop

You can watch DSTV free on your Laptop or Desktop computers. All active DSTV subscribers can access DSTV Mobile for free except for subscribers to DSTV Access. To enjoy DSTV Mobile free on your Windows or Mac Computer, you have to link your computer to your DSTV TV subscription account. Visit a DSTV outlet to link your computer to your DSTV account.
