DStv to End Its Mobile TV Service on October 31

MultiChoice has announced that it will break off its DStv Mobile TV service after 31st of October, 2018.

DStv Mobile TV has been existing since 2010 and it used DVB-H technology, allowing users to access DStv on their phone, laptop, or tablet via a Drifta mobile decoder.

The decoder received a DVB-H signal and converted it into a Wi-Fi signal for smart devices to access.

The service was N1,260 per month. DStv Premium customers received one Mobile subscription for free, with additional subscriptions charged at N1,260 per month each.

Over the last few years, technology has evolved as broadband access continues to grow. It’s not feasible to continue to maintain a separate land-based, dedicated network for this service alone, when an even better service can be offered to our customers on DStv Now via the Internet and Wi-Fi,” said MultiChoice.As you can see DStv Now App is the main reason why Multichoice is ending its DStv mobile service. Drifta mobile decoder receives a DVB-H signal and converted it into a Wi-Fi signal for smart devices to access, but DStv Now does that over internet and Wi-Fi connectivity.

MultiChoice told customers who currently have a Mobile subscription that it has already started to switch off certain transmitters. This will impact reception for certain users.

As a result, users will not be charged their subscription fee from 1 September 2018. Decoder insurance on Mobile devices will also be canceled.

DStv Now is what is in vogue these days, so you don't need Drifta mobile decoder anymore.
