    Daenerys is irritating me with this whole I'm your Queen nonsense - bish ain't even seen't the Iron throne but she claiming it.
    Called mother of Dragons but clearly those are Wyverns.

    I have 100mbs fibre and tried to watch it via catchup at around 21h00 on the Monday evening

    From what I can tell its a DSTV thing. Every now and then I also have inexplicable buffering when watching DSTV NOW, but as soon as I switch to NETFLIX or something else then then everything runs smoothly. So def not the internet in my case at least.

    For me it might also just be the fact that I use a LIT BOX but just thought I would give my 2 cents.

    Side note you can try SHOWMAX as an alternative as they also have SEASON 8

    Indeed, I did my third watch through Showmax, and it seemed much smoother. The DSTV Now app is just pure trash. We use it because we have to.

    It's just greed. Netflix is fully capable of catering to all of our streaming needs, and eliminating the need for any and all other competition. It would more than likely kill off a very large chunk of DSTV subscribers, and obviously they don't want that, so instead of giving Netflix the rights, they will rather keep all the in demand content for themselves, and give us a horrible experience while doing it.
