South Africans are focusing on learning during the lockdown, with some perhaps considering impromptu careers in craft brewing and homemade alcohol. As lockdown enters…
DStv has made six of its premium 24-hour news channels free to watch for South Africa via its DStv Now streaming service.
The channels include:
- BBC World
- SABC News
- Newzroom Afrika
- Euronews Now
The channels are free to access, even if you aren’t a DStv subscriber, via the company’s DStv Now streaming app on mobile, desktop and smart TV.
Users will need data or a WiFi connection, as these channels have not been zero-rated by any network.
To sign up to the service:
- Go to dstv.com and hit Sign Up.
- Create an account.
- Add your ID number, smartcard number or customer number. You can skip this step if you aren’t a DStv subscriber.
- Personalise your account.
You can then download the apps of your choosing and login accordingly.
It’s not clear how long these DStv channels will remain free-to-view, but it’s currently limited to those within South Africa.
