Let's get you started

What’s a Smartcard number?
Your Smartcard number is on the reverse of your smartcard, below the barcode and is linked to your decoder and your customer number that was created with MultiChoice when you initiated your DStv subscription.

When to use your Smartcard number?
When logging into our digital platforms to make a payment, fix decoder errors, change package and more, you will always need to enter your smartcard number, mobile number, or surname. Ensure these details are updated with us!
