Our View

The App runs smoothly without any glitches, we had a feel of it using Telone’s Broadband. We tested the application on android marshmallow and nougat. Our hope is that the experience is similar on all supported versions of Android and iOS.

The fact that a DEOD account can be used on a maximum of 5 devices is a good thing because almost everyone these days has 3-4 devices they own. Digital Entertainment on Demand lacks the latest content and we feel that the application should also support filtered local content as per country is in since the app supports Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia, and Botswana).
