How to keep kids edutained during load shedding

Posted by radio On August - 6 - 2020

Lights out doesn’t have to mean the fun’s out. With DStv Now, kids can watch a wide range of edutaining shows on their favourite devices, at no additional cost to you.

 

We’re all too familiar with the famous cry of the little ones when the electricity goes out. Unable to entertain themselves as they normally would, they can become antsy – particularly when the power is out for long than expected.

It’s moments like these that DStv’s School of Laughter was created for. Committed to supporting customers navigating the journey of parenting, DStv partnered with some of the best kids channels in the world to collate a comprehensive viewing environment that is both entertaining and educational.

This offering, which we like to call our School of Laughter, delivers exciting content for children of all ages. In particular, nursery and primary school learners are spoiled for choice when it comes to the wide variety of ‘edutainment’ on offer via the DStv platform.

So, the next time the lights go out and you’re looking for an efficient way to keep the kids ‘edutained’, look no further than the DStv School of Laughter. The School of Laughter webpage is filled with awesome activities for kids to do on their tablets or mobile phones. And when the lights come back on, ensure your child’s favourite School of Laughter shows have been downloaded to your mobile devices so they can watch them during load shedding.

How to download and watch with DStv Now

  3. Log in, and search for a series or movie to download.
  4. Tap the cloud-shaped icon.
  5. Select the quality of video file being downloaded (Highest, High, Medium or Low). Tip: the lower the quality selected, the smaller the file size and the less storage space it takes up on the device.

  7. Happy watching!
  8. Important: After clicking ‘play’, watch the content within 48 hours, before it expires and it has to be downloaded again. If you don’t click ‘play’ right away, the content stays on the device for a while before it expires.
