How to Activate Big Brother Channel 198 on DsTV Decoder

Big Brother Africa is a continental reality show, which features contestants from various African countries who share the same house. They get to be voted off by viewers until there is one remaining who gets to win the prize.

If you want to view the Big Brother Africa game show on your DsTV decoder, you must activate channels 198 and 197 on the decoder. Besides, you must subscribe to the Compact or Premium bouquet for you to have access to the BBA channels. The channels bring audiences live 24/7 coverage from the Big Brother TV reality show.

If you are subscribed to the DsTV Access and Family bouquets, you will not be able to watch the 24/7 coverage but you can watch highlight packages of the game show on DStv channels Africa Magic, Africa Magic World.

That’s all.
