DStv Now

Hi, sorry I did miss your comment Thanks for the advise. I managed to upgrade play store. Dstv is still not showing up there as well. I did manage to download apk for dstv now, and I can now login, however I am getting video playback error device certification, guessing the device is not registered.

If that app requires Widevine Level 1 DRM then you are correct the atvX firmware does not have the certificates to play Level 1 DRM protected content. AtvX only has the standard Widevine Level 3 DRM certificates that are included in the Open Source code from Google. The only devices licensed with that L1 DRM cert. are the RokuTV's, FireTV OS devices, or AndroidTV devices like: Nvidia Shield, Xiaomi MiBox, or Mecool KM3/KM8/KM9pro.

To make sure your device with a custom ROM never gets blocked by Google services it should be registered, this won't help apps like DStv, but it is a good thing to do. Here is the XDA-developers Guide to register your device:

Hi, if you want DStv now to work there are two ways to get it to work. First way is to download dstv now version 2.1.17 (Aptoide has it or apkmirror). Second way is to install magisk manager, reboot into recovery and use twrp to flash magisk root. After that your device will pick up dstv now in the play store and work. Second option only works if you have atvx - first method works on any box.
