Super Upgrades

This app was practically unusable for a few years, but now works perfectly I’d say. You can watch live tv, download to your tablet, make updates to your account, etc. as a Nigeria user.
I’m not sure you can pay subscriptions via the app. Not tried that yet.
This should be a 5* review, but as a frequent traveler outside the African continent, I am not able to watch anything outside Africa. That’s a BIG problem for me.
Fix that and you have my 5*

Hi t0b3nna,

Thank you for the feedback. You can only make a payment on the website using a credit card. And, DStv is only available in Africa. ~ND

Getting frustrated

Usually I love this app and being able to watch on the go, but lately it is starting it be unstable. Almost every week now out of nowhere and doing nothing out of the ordinary, I get a message that says I have reached my streaming limit of two devices at the same time, and I must dergister from one to continue watching. I have to go out the app entirely and wait at least an hour until I can get back in to carry on watching. This is despite me only watching through the app on one device at the time, never mind that you can have up to five devices connected. Logging out and in again or reinstalling the app doesn't work, and I just have to wait. Not sure what is going on with the stability of the app, but what's the point if you can't count on it to watch your shows.

Great app apart from the inability to cast from my iPhone to Chromecast

The app is great in that I can watch anything on the go and the video quality is excellent. It is very easy to use and streams quite consistently. I just don’t know why I can’t seem to cast the app to chromecast. I constantly get the message on my tv screen; sorry, there was a problem playing the video. All the while the cast icon on the top right of my screen is still connected to chromecast. Would like any suggestions from the developer as how to resolve this. Since this is a feature the app has I am disappointed it doesn’t work as it limits what I would like to do that is the reason for my rating. I understand everyone has different uses and if one wants to primarily just stream on the phone or other handheld devices then this does just that brilliantly.
