Opened Now and S1 on my phone and it is still playing fine after a few minutes.

i have 2 h96 pro + boxes.
it is not a 'google' box,  so my BIL loaded the android version from the Mi Box.
everything works,  just the sport channels freeze...

Something to think about...
When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept your it. All else is madness.

The DSTV Now app works on the Mi Box 3 sold by Takealot (Looks like it's on special again today for R1200)

i have 4 alfawise h96pro+ boxes for sale.
3 gigs RAM
32 gigs ROM
they sell for $70.
2 of the ones i have will also go with the ri i28 remotes (about R500 for the remote)
looking for R1200 for the ones with the fancy remotes,  and R900 for the other 2.
all boxes,  remotes,  power supply,  and standard remotes that come with the boxes are in perfect order.
will take photos etc this evening and post an add.
if you're keen in the meantime you can get me on my cell: oh ate three 600 three ate eight oh

Next problm ith Dstv now.
The catchup service keeps buffering. Thought it might be interference or something but it from a quick search it seems to be the DSTV service that has problems. All other streaming services works fine.

Take note of the connections on the boxes vs your setup. Ethernet, Audio output, etc.

And the operating system.  Some have Android TV while some have I think a normal Android OS. Not sure the difference though.

Huge difference - the one is a touch interface, which doesn't work well with a remote.  The other is a proper 10ft interface, which works well with a remote, and has specific settings to deal with TV screens as displays.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Andriod TV OS is aimed at TV's and you dont need a touch screen or mouse to operate. Normal Android is best on a tablet or with an air mouse.
The play store for Android TV is limited to TV specific apps, on normal Android you can load everything you can load on a phone.

I got my Minix with standard Android but quickly got a ROM loaded with TV-OS. Works much simpler for family wanting to watch shows.

Fuck them indeed.

I see they are offering their ex-subscribers a "secret" deal...

They are trying to lure ex premium subscribers back by charging them only R699/m

But I am sure there will be some sort of catch...
