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 on the decoder. Besides, you must subscribe to the Compact, Compact Plus or Premium bouquet for you to have access to the BBN Naija channels on DStv. The channels bring audiences live 24/7 coverage from the Big Brother TV reality show.

If you are subscribed to the DsTV Confam, Dstv Yanga and DsTv Padi 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.


How Can I Activate BBNaija Channel 198 on Dstv?

If you have subscribed to DsTV Compact, Compact Plus or the DsTV Premium bouquet,

==> Tune your DsTv to channel 198

e,g 1234567890 YES

==> You must use the phone number you registered with your Smartcard number.

==> 30333 is the DsTV shortcode for Nigeria.

That’s all.

I hope this helps.
