How to Watch DStv Now in the UK

Want to watch DStv Now in the UK? Right now, if you are outside of Africa, that is not possible. Meaning that you are missing out on one of the most entertainment filled platforms out there that even comes with new shows like Power Book II: Ghost.

But there is a way to unblock DStv in the UK, and in this guide, we go over how to do it.

Prior to getting into that, let’s talk about the limitations of getting DStv, and why you need to search for how to get it in the first place.

What You Need To Know Before Trying To Watch DStv Now in the UK

Most importantly, that it’s not as simple to get DStv in the UK as it is to get the likes of RTE Player, DAZN, and Hulu, which we made guides on in the past.


As DStv Now is a platform for people that already have a DStv TV package. If you have a DStv TV package, you can get DStv Now, and then can watch on the go.

There are many methods to bypass payment blocks and so on with services like Hulu, but when it comes to this, that makes life hard.

The solution?

  1. You ask someone that already has DStv to help you out.
  2. You pay for someone’s DStv subscription and then use the DStv Now platform.

Those are pretty much the only options.

...Or maybe you already have an account, and if you do, in that case, let’s get into why you need to unblock DStv in the UK.

Why Unblocking DStv Now in the UK is Needed

...For the exact same reason for why you need to unblock RTE Player in the UK.

Rights to content are an issue when it comes to all streaming services.


As all platforms show content that they can’t show in certain other countries, meaning they have to take measures to prevent others from watching.

...If they don’t, then they can get in trouble.

And that’s where unblocking DStv comes in.

How to Unblock DStv Now in the UK

For you to watch DStv, DStv must think you are in a supported region such as South Africa.

For that to happen, you need to change your location virtually.


By using a VPN service.

VPN services? They are used for many reasons, such as for staying safe on the internet with encryption and IP change, but in this case, they can be used for changing your location virtually, which would thus allow you to unblock DStv even when in the UK.

If you ever tried using a VPN service, though, then you know that it’s not as simple as that.

That’s because almost all streaming platforms need to take efforts against VPN services too. Otherwise, they are making it easy for others to stream, and thus break their contract agreements.

That’s why a lot of VPN services don’t work with a lot of streaming platforms.

...Especially when it comes to platforms that VPN services are not as aware of.

PrivateVPN? It focuses on quality rather than quantity. By focusing on quality, we are able to focus on services such as DStv Now, and can make them work.

Is Watching DStv Now in the UK on a TV Possible?

Want to watch DStv on your TV?

That’s complicated but it is possible.

Why is it complicated?

As platforms like Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, and most smart TVs don’t support VPN services.

That’s where these 2 great alternatives come in:

  1. Connect a laptop to a TV via an HDMI cable.
  2. Get an Amazon Fire TV Stick as it supports VPN services.
