Cape Town - It’s now even easier for DStv customers to find the best of DStv series, movies and sporting events on the DStv Now app, thanks to a redesigned home screen.

The new home screen features recommendation lists, which give customers an immediate overview of the hottest DStv content.

A "Must-Watch Movie" section suggests everything from big-name action blockbusters to powerful dramas, and light-hearted comedies.

An easier-to-use navigation bar also offers a more intuitive interface and instant access to ever-popular SuperSport content.

The introduction of a new ‘login upfront’ on the DStv Now mobile app also paves the way for greater personalisation of customers’ viewing experience.

The login upfront process is simple:

* Existing DStv Now app users who upgrade to the latest version of the app will not have to login to the app again if they were logged in on the previous version.

* Users who were not previously logged in, as well as first time users, need to log in using their DStv Connect ID information when using the updated app for the first time.

* Unless users manually log out, they will not have to login to the app again.
