How to get your message on TV – BBMzansi

23 January 2022
A new season of Big Brother Mzansi is upon us, along with new ways for fans to interact with the show and each other.

The 24/7 Big Brother Mzansi channel – channel 198 on DStv – will feature a continuously-updated strap displaying a constant feed of messages sent in by viewers, as well as polls that allow fans to vote on certain issues. By visiting this link, fans have a better chance of their message showing up on the channel first, although commenting on the Big Brother Facebook page also works, as does Tweeting the hashtag #BBMzansi.

The fans are an integral part of Big Brother, and this is one of the best ways that they can interact with the show, whether it’s weighing in on the hot topics of the day, showing support for their favourite Housemate or just saying “hi” to the rest of South Africa (or the continent, for that matter).

As mentioned, another thing to look out for is the new, daily poll. Every day, another question will be posed to Big Brother Mzansi viewers on the website (www.mzansimagic.tv/bigbrother), and the results of that poll will also be displayed on the dedicated Big Brother channel.

These are just two of the many ways that fans are being brought ever closer to the show, and we hope to hear from all of you. Happy watching!


Big Brother Mzansi season 3 will start airing on 23 January 2022 on DStv Channel 161 Mzansi Magic and the 24-hour broadcast channel 198. Big Brother Mzansi will be available on DStv Compact, DStv Compact Plus and DStv Premium only. Use the hashtag #BBMzansi to join the conversation and connect with us on FacebookTwitter,  Instagram and TikTok!
