If like me, you have been wondering how to send ‘SMS to TV’ from Ghana for it to scroll on the message strap of the ongoing Big Brother Amplified on DStv channel 198, worry not; there is a way. The short code for Ghana hasn’t been advertised on the screens much since the show started and so there have only been a few messages from Ghana while there has been an influx of messages (no matter how unpalatable) from the other countries particularly in the Southern Africa region.But if you are in Ghana or any of the other participating countries for that matter, you can send shout outs and SMS messages to other Big Brother Amplified viewers on Channel 198 using the telephone numbers relevant to your country. Find your country in the list below, type your short message and send it to the corresponding number. Take note of the charges per SMS for your country.
