In March Multichoice made DStv Now available for non-subscribers giving them access to 24-hour news channels.

The service has become very popular during the Covid-19 lockdown with the company adding two new channels, taking the total number of channels to 16.

Usage of the service has increased 20% since the lockdown began, and peak usage is up 80% compared to pre-crisis peaks.

Multichoice has now added educational content with the Mindset PoP channel. This channel features educational programming covering the entire General Education and Training (GET) phase, including Early Childhood Development (ECD), as well as a key focus on the Grade 4 – 9 curriculum.

The channel aims to prepare children for when schools reopen. Mindset PoP will deliver live lessons daily, with six fresh hours every day. A website is available for parents to download worksheets and information sheets to work through with expert teachers. Lessons are based on the South African Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS) and are also aligned to the Cambridge curriculum.
