If you’ve ever imagined watching DSTV or GoTV channels on your Android phone, you should be delighted that your imagination has every chance of resolving into reality.

Indisputably, both DSTV and GoTV offer subscribers the chance to watch their favourite DSTV/GoTV channels on mobile devices. But for the subscribers to do this, certain things must be in place and that’s why this article is here to guide you on how to watch DSTV and GoTV on your Android phone.

How to Watch DSTV on an Android Phone

It’s nearly impossible to watch your DSTV channels on Android phones simply because such phones do not feature built-in DVB-H receivers, making them incapable of receiving TV signals. But to bypass this seeming impossibility, DSTV provides customers with the DSTV Mobile Wi-Fi Drifta for receiving TV signals required for the broadcast of DSTV channels via a Wi-Fi connection. With this in place, users of Android phones and tablet computers are then able to watch DSTV channels on the devices.
