Catch up: Remembering what you are watching
I love the DSTV mobile app, but it often doesn’t update the latest episodes on catch up under my ‘what you’re watching’ section so I have to search for the newest episode of the series I’m watching under another category like new shows.
When using the app on my computer and I’m scrolling through movies and click on one I want to read up on, if I decide not to watch it, and I want to go back to the list of catch up movies, it takes me to the very top of the list of and I have to scroll all the way down to where I was. I really like the Netflix system whereby when you move your cursor over the movie title a short description comes up. This way you don’t lose your place.

DSTV CUSTOMER REVIEW
I have experienced too many problems!
You indicate the programs to play, then I experience the right show details, but the wrong program, the wrong show details, but the right program, the program that starts, at the right time but finishes at the wrong time, the program that starts, at the wrong time but finishes at the right time, the packages not adaptable to choose what you like and don’t like and being able to save in not paying for channels not within your culture, not what you choose, also not providing a decoder with a ultra large hard drive 4 x 110 hours capacity as 110 hours is too small especially since people don’t have a lot of time to watch programs in allotted time slots, but being able to record it will be provide lots of joy as you are able to watch in your own time and especially as you can’t stream everything that you pay for on DSTV, thus a major nuisance to many subscribers and your packages are exorbitantly expensive especially between the various packages in relation to channels broadcasted and in terms of competitive products in our Market, a reason many subscribers ended their DSTV subscriptions. You either change for the better or your decisions will change you for the worse.

ENQUIRY REFERENCE NUMBER : 27426972 We apologize for the experience you are having with our app. Please send a message to our Live Chat platform at https://now.dstv.com / https://chat.showmax.com/. and we will try to resolve the issue.
I genuinely enjoy using this application, and made use of it extensively until I switched to a new device.
I would like to suggest that you make it possible for more than one email address or profile to link to a smart card (subscription), perhaps 4 different profiles (as you have the device limit) to allow for family sharing and viewing on different devices. I have recently been having trouble since I have started using a new device, even though I have been using the same credentials as I have used previously on my old device.
Why can you simply not link up to 4 email addresses or profiles to one subscription, and simply just have a main account that cannot be deleted for example.
Having to ask another family member for their sign in details to access my favorite shows when I did not have to do so previously does not make sense.
Please fix this.
