How to Watch Big Brother Naija 2021 on DsTv {Channel}


This big brother Naija channel on dstv article will attempt to answer questions such as what channel is Big Brother on? Where can I watch BBNaija 2021? Is Big Brother Naija on DStv Yanga? Which DStv packages show BBN 2021?

DsTv is one of the few platforms where you can watch the sixth season of Africa’s biggest reality Tv shows both in number of viewers as well as in the grand price. This write up is about big brother Naija 2021 channel and the packages it is available on.

You can’t watch this show on the likes of startimes, TsTv or even Netflix. Why? Because its organizer is Multichoice; the parent company of DsTv, GoTv and Showmax.

To be honest, I think they cover the base. DsTv has numerous subscribers, but it can be quite expensive for many Nigerians to keep subscribing to, which is where GoTv comes in.

Showmax on the other hand is for those that are always on the move and those that are outside of Africa which means they have no access to DsTv services.

If you are not using dstv, but have access to gotv, you should check my write up on how you can watch the show on the platforms too. As for showmax, just visit their website, sign up, subscribe and start watching.
