  1. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up
    and let you know a few of the pictures aren't
    loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I've tried it in two different internet browsers and
    both show the same outcome.

  2. There is only one image in the article and it's loading properly. It's probably caused by slow internet connection at your end. Thanks for the in nonetheless.

  3. do you have via on compact plus

  4. Hi,
    I recently subscribed for DStv Compact (Nigeria). However, channels 165 and 251 to 259 (all local channels) are not showing at all on the list of channels. It's not as if there is an error message. The channels are not even there. They're just missing from the list, even when I switch from "my channels" to "all channels". Any ideas please? I have tried to reset the decoder settings to factory default, but no change.

    1. Your question will be answered once the list is updated. Please check back for the updated is of dstv compact plus channels. Thank you.

    2. You can check now. The channels list has been updated.

      NB: This page is for DStv Compact Plus not DStv Compact. See the list of DStv Compact Channels.

  5. I just want to say keep up the good work multichoice

  6. Hi. I previously cancelled the Showmax that I never subscribed for and was successful. Again now my package has been changed to the DSTV Compact Plus without my consent. Can someone please help me get rid of all these unknown upgrades?

    1. Please contact DStv and tell them about the problem.
