Being cooped up at home for 21 days can mean a lot of things – boredom, frustration with family members and melancholic musings. It’s a good job that many of us have streaming services available to keep us sane. A recent report from the Motion Picture Association revealed that last year’s global entertainment market surpassed $100 billion in revenues for the first time in history with digital home and mobile entertainment bringing in $58.8 billion. This was a 14% boost from last year, which is definite proof that people are turning more to streaming services.

In order to ensure South Africans stay entertained during lockdown, HUAWEI AppGallery is promoting DStv Now as they are offering 13 free streaming channels to South Africans, as well as DStv’s full subscriber bouquet. The DStv Now app was recently integrated onto Huawei’s new ecosystem, Huawei Mobile Services, and so is available on all new Huawei devices too.

DStv Now is offering the following channels for free so that everyone can stay entertained and informed during lockdown:

  • 100 – DStv
  • 180 – People’s Weather
  • 238 – SuperSport Play
  • 313 – PBS Kids
  • 320 – Channel O
  • 343 – TBN
  • 400 – BBC World News
  • 401 – CNN
  • 402 – Sky News
  • 403 – eNCA
  • 404 – SABC News
  • 406 – Newzroom Afrika
  • 414 – Euronews Now

In addition, HUAWEI AppGallery has other local streaming services available, including Vodacom Video Play and Showmax. This will ensure South Africans will get all the local and international series, movies, news, kids shows and music that they need to survive the lockdown.


HUAWEI AppGallery has partnered with Showmax to provide a significant number of three-month subscriptions for Huawei users to redeem on us. All you need to do is go to HUAWEI AppGallery and download the Showmax app from Huawei’s app store.
