Add-on packages

Do you remember that we mentioned DStv add-on packages as well? Well, there are three (3) DStv Zambia add-on packages, namely Great Wall, Indian and Portuguese. As it has always been the case, DStv add-on packages are just that — they are add-ons. In sum, you can’t buy an add-on package alone, there’s need to subscribe to a standard package first. Below is the pricing information for each package. Before we let you in on the prices, bear in mind that the annual payment with one a month discount doesn’t apply to add-ons.

In brief, DStv Zambia add-on packages are priced as follows DStv Great Wall K125, DStv Indian K190 and DStv Portuguese K260.

Package: DStv Great Wall

Price: K125

Channels: 10

Description: DStv Great Wall is a bouquet with a focus on Chinese content with channels ranging from entertainment to variety shows. The package has a decent number of TV channels standing at 10 but has only one audio channel. According to the DStv website, the package is for the Asian community in Africa as well as Africans who are curious about Chinese culture.

Package: DStv Indian

Price: K190

Channels: 20

Description: On our list of DStv add-on packages, DStv Indian has the most generous offering of over 20 TV channels for the low price of K190. In addition, the content is diverse, delivering prime Indian entertainment to suit different tastes. Fortunately for DStv Premium customers, DStv Indian can be added upon request. Although an amazing offer, there are no audio channels in the package.

Package: DStv Portuguese

Price: K260

Channels: 4

Description: Although only having four TV and zero audio channels, DStv Portuguese is the most expensive add-on package. The current subscription fee for DStv Portuguese is K260! The bouquet is rich in Portuguese telenovelas, sports and news. We think it’s probably a good bargain for those who subscribe to it.
