DStv last Tuesday announced that as of 22 March this year, it would be limiting the streaming of its services on its DStv Now app to only one account in an effort to clamp down on mass password sharing and piracy throughout Africa.

“From 22 March 2022, customers will be limited to streaming DStv on one device at a time. They will still be able to watch previously downloaded content on a second device,” the broadcast group said in a statement.

According to MultiChoice, they are only limiting services to one concurrent stream, not limiting the number of people who can log in.

“The change will be made to all DStv subscriptions across Africa; however, only customers making use of more than one concurrent stream will be directly affected by the change,” MultiChoice said.

The move has been met by an uproar from Netizens all over the continent with Tech-ish.com stating the company ‘truly doesn’t understand the digital age.’

Here are a few reactions from DStv Users over on Twitter:
