DSTV Mobile Channel Update : SS4 added

Posted on September 09, 2011

Just heard this evening that Supersport 4 has been added and that Big Brother Amplified has been dropped. Since DStv Mobile users are mostly sports lovers, this can only be a good move. I haven’t seen any official announcement but can guess that it is related to the Rugby World Cup. More coverage for all of us :)

Thanks Melosi Baloyi Lesega (@melosib) for bringing this to my attention.

Android Drifta app 1.1.19 updates Drifta firmware to 2.1.312

Posted on September 09, 2011

Out of interest, the launch application for Android (1.1.19) requires an update to the Drifta firmware.

Unpacking the .APK file and extracting the firmware binary shows the version as Tivit(DVB-H) 2.1.312 2011/06/23-19:41:55

Information has been added to the FAQ.

The OFFICIAL DStv Drifta app now compatible with many more Android Devices

Posted on September 09, 2011

Update 2 : Confirmed for 3 HTC devices, the Desire, Desire HD and Wildfire S.

Other devices appear to be able to download but not run the application.

Update : The app downloads and install but fails the whitelist authentication test. I hope DStv fixes that this morning otherwise I see many of us going with the unofficial application (see here)

As of this morning, despite the Android Market place description of the software saying otherwise, the official DStv Drifta app from the marketplace is now compatible with a number of new devices.

Currently the following are confirmed :

  • Sony Ericsson X10
  • HTC Desire
Please add more compatible devices in the comments once you get yours working.
