Multichoice Africa has reshuffled, added and removed bouquets in the past 7 months and one of the recently added ones is DsTv Yanga whose list of channels in 2020, price per month and comparison with the packages directly above and below it will be discussed in the write up.

Before December 2019, there are 5 packages available for dstv users to subscribe to.
But on the 10th of the last month of the Year, the Pay Tv giant introduced 3 new bouquet increasing it to total of 8 to choose from.
Then, something interesting happen.
The new packages overlapped with some of the existing ones and that get lot of subscribers confused and furstrated.
Which was why i compared the new ones with the existing ones directly above and below them.
But then, some days ago in June 2020, they decided to remove Family and Access packages which have been existing for years and i have to come up with this write up to explain things to you.
Over the course of all these changes, stations are being added and removed from each packages but things seems to be stable now.
The following are the list of stations you will be viewing when you subscribe to Yanga.
