As Big Brother Africa; the biggest reality show on the Africa continent gets set to go live on 5 October, MultiChoice has urge subscribers to exert restriction on channels visited by children through the Parental Control option on their decoders.
The Public Relations Manager for DStv, Caroline Oghuma said all the subscriber needs to do is press the Menu button on the DStv remote control, select the Parental Control Option, then key in the default Pin Code, which is 1234.
“the subscriber then has the option to change the default Pin Code by Selecting Blocking Option 1 ). He can then scroll using the right arrow and select Parental Control, access Parental Levels and then choose the appropriate PG Rating. Selecting Family or PG13 will block an event rated 16 and above. He can then select accept these settings and press `Exit’ to go back to normal viewing” she said.
Oghuma also noted that subscribers who may not be interested in watching the reality show can opt out of viewing the programme during its duration. “To do so, all the subscriber needs to do is to text “NO” and the first 10 digits of his smartcard number to 30333. Normal SMS charges apply” she said.
Oghuma who pointed out that the new season of the reality show will play host to housemates who adore the spotlight and will let nothing stand in the way of their pursuit of fame & fortune also explained that the housemates will start the game in two ultra-glamorous houses which are built with fun and excitement in mind.
For 64 days, they will do their best to outshine one another in the hope of convincing Africa that they are the continent’s biggest Hotshot. “They will play hard and face formidable challenges – all the while negotiating Biggie’s famous curveballs and twists” she remarked.
