Multichoice’s Digital Satellite(DStv) television is unarguably Nigeria’s premier pay television as it  is connected in a lot of homes.

Stations on DStv have ratings on their shows most of the time and this ratings show what age is appropriate to view the program or movie aired. These

In enviroments were there are children, it is hard putting up a verbal restriction on these shows.

But DStv has a child lock feature that has been around for a very long time, but many people do not know about or use. This feature helps you set a password on certain programs that are marked SNVL (sex, nudity, violence, language)

Step 1

Press the MENU button on your DStv Remote to access Settings, then select the Parental Control option.

Step 2

Enter the default Parental Guidance pin which is 1234, then proceed to change the pin to any four letter password of your choosing that would be easy for you to remember.

Step 3

Options range from blocking shows and movies to blocking entire channels. Select the option that best suits your need.


On a final note, even if you forget your Parental Guidance(PG) pin, a call to the DStv call centre will reset the pin to default.
