Speaking of robots and all things sci-fi, kids can get their geek on and live stream the Star Wars series with the Disney Channel on DStv Now! Stay on trend, and catch Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures and Star Wars Forces of Destiny.

No internet on the go? No worries, with Catch Up you can download episodes of your favourite kids series and movies to watch later, whether you’re on the road or in the air – it’s that easy!

Keep it safe

Browsing on the DStv Now app, the kids Catch Up content is secured by an easy-to-remember, four-digit PIN number of your choice, which will keep the little ones from straying outside the Kids content library. 

The first time you select Kids from the menu on the DStv Now app, you’ll be prompted to enter and confirm a PIN. Once you're in the Kids section – not hard to spot thanks to the bright colours and cute design - your children will be able to watch previously-downloaded content and stream family-friendly Catch Up titles. They won’t be able to access other sections of the app without entering the PIN first.

To exit the Kids content section, simply enter the PIN and you’ll have access to the rest of the DStv Now offering.

Remember, as a DStv customer, you’ll have access to up to multiple mobile viewing environments, so you can stream or download movies, series and sports highlights on your mobile device while the kids are watching their shows on a different device.
