DStv: These subscribers now get ’16 new channels’ as part of a free upgrade

Stuck indoors with nowhere to go, lockdown has taken its toll on South Africans. With the country seemingly in this predicament for the long haul, DStv have decided to soften the blow for a large section of their subscriber base. Compact customers emerge as the big winners, but Plus and Premium clients also have something to celebrate.

It was confirmed earlier on Monday that there would be ‘at least 16 channels’ added to the bouquet currently offered to Compact subscribers. For their R399 monthly fee, this particular demographic will be getting more mileage out of their money. However, it must be noted that this upgrade is only in place until 29 May.

What channels will DStv Compact subscribers get free in May?

Around 7.5 million people have a DStv subscription in South Africa, with a large number of clients opting for the Compact package. The channels made temporarily available in this bouquet include:

  • 1Magic
  • M-Net Binge
  • Comedy Central
  • kykNET
  • Africa Magic Urban Movies
  • CBS Justice
  • Curiosity Stream
  • History
  • Nickelodeon
  • Nick Jr
  • CBeebies
  • MTV Music
  • SuperSport 8
  • SuperSport 12
  • SuperSport 13
  • Sky News

Compact Plus, Premium subscribers also get a boost

Predictably, customers on the Compact Plus and Premium packages were left wondering if they’d been overlooked, given that they pay the most for their entertainment bundle. Well, M-Net has come through for them: It’s specialist HBO channel – M-Net Binge (DStv 114) – will now run for an extra two months for these customers.

HBO are world-renowned for their incredible dramas and documentary specials. Shows such as Westworld, The Sopranos, and True Blood will stay on our screens until Sunday 28 June. However, there are some time and broadcasting restrictions in place due to the channel’s age-sensitive content.

  • Unfortunately, nothing has yet been offered to Family, Access or EasyView customers.

Controversial Durban pastor arrested for breaking lockdown rules

The Zionist Bishop, whohad previously vowed to defy the lockdown rules, has now been arrested for leaving his home to pray on a mountain.

Controversial Durban pastor arrested for breaking lockdown rules

A Durban pastor who had vowed to contravene lockdown regulations by gathering a flock of his supporters has been arrested after leaving his house to pray on a mountain. 

Bishop Bheki Ngcobo, the controversial man who had pledged to defy the nationwide lockdown and proclaimed that President Cyril Ramaphosa “is not God”, was arrested on Saturday in Bluff, outside of Durban, having left his home and head for the hills. 

Social media charge added to arrest sheet

Ngcobo had said that his supporters – of which there are scores – should be empowered by his call to gather for an Easter pilgrimage and pray for COVID-19 to end. 

“Ramaphosa is not God. We are God’s army, so we are going to Easter pilgrimage to fight this thing together. We will use them to pray for the end of coronavirus. God says that, ‘if my people humble themselves and seek my face, I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins’.”

It appears that these calls have now landed him in further trouble, with a further charge of spreading fake news added to his arrest sheet. 

Police spokesperson Brigadier Vish Naidoo said that he had been charged with contravening the Disaster Management Act, as well as inciting supporters to defy the regulations on social media. 

“[Ngcobo has been charged with contravention of Section 27(2)(1) of the Disaster Management Act], as well as a charge pertaining to any person who publishes any statement through any medium including social media with the intention to deceive any other person about any measure taken by the Government to address COVID-19”.

Released on bail  

The pastor, who is known to be affiliated with former President Jacob Zuma having organised several protests against the claims of corruption made against him, is also a founding leader of a new political party, the African Freedom Revolution (AFR)

Ngcobo was released on bail of R3 000 on Sunday and is expected to appear in court on May 8.
