    Thank you for the article, it’s very helpful indeed. I have a question, is DSTV Now available in Zimbabwe? I know in SA they have a service whereby you can use an app to watch DSTV on any mobile device on the go.

    1. Tonderai says:

      Yes, “DSTV Now” is available in Zimbabwe. All you need is a great data plan or wifi.

  2. Tonderai says:

    Both Barclays and FBC allow payments via Internet Banking and Mobile Banking.

  3. Sabhuku Chikoto says:

    How about Stanbic?

  4. Petros says:

    Seems the system is down? We have tried since Friday (28th July) through the bank and no joy!

    1. Tonderai says:

      Use the first 10 digits of your smartcard number.

  5. Tafadzwa says:

    Cbz now working, they are now limiting to one payment per person

    1. Tafadzwa says:

      per month

      I made a cash payment through CBZ two weeks ago at a local shop and did not receive service. Online support from DSTV advised me to go back to the shop. I did so and they told me, “they were working on it”! On monday I got a call to go and pay more money at the DSTV shop. This is my exit from DSTV

    You can also use your local visa card to make payments

    Thanks for the update, cash especially USD is a hustle in Zim at the moment, is it possible for DSTV subscribers to pay using bond notes and then DSTV liaises with banks for International banking services to get the much needed USD for their subscriptions?

    I use my visa card to pay online

      Most of the Banks you listed are no longer accepting cash as DSTV payment its frustrating hoping from bank to bank trying to pay but with no joy pse Multichoice device a method which will make the ordinary people pay without any hustle
