DStv draw­card

DStv have some hot shows on the way but they are go­ing to come at a price.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

tv­plus got a sneak peek at what to ex­pect on pay TV this year at the 2016 DStv show­case and view­ers are in for a treat!

Mzansi Magic (chan­nel 161) will says farewell to Za­bal­aza (2013-2016) in April and The Road (2015-2016) in March. The chan­nel has two brand-new te­len­ov­e­las lined up un­der the work­ing ti­tles of Igazi and The Con­tenders.

Be­tween M-Net (chan­nel 101) and M-Net Edge (chan­nel 102), TV fans can ex­pect hot prop­er­ties like Lu­cifer (2016- cur­rent), Fargo’s se­cond sea­son (2014- cur­rent), new thriller The Catch (2016- cur­rent), come­dies such as Grand­fa­thered (2015- cur­rent) and re­turn­ing favourite Game Of Thrones (2011- cur­rent).

Thanks to the hugely suc­cess­ful Star Wars pop-up chan­nel in 2015, two new pop-up chan­nels will be added this year. Afrikaans view­ers have a lot of new good­ies to look for­ward to, such as Villa Rosa’s (20042016) re­place­ment soapie Getroud Met Rugby (2016) in April and sea­son 9 of Boer Soek ’n Vrou (2007- cur­rent) with new pre­sen­ter Minki van der Westhuizen.

But the bad news is the in­evitable DStv price hike – likely to be 10% – which will be an­nounced at the end of Fe­bru­ary and kick in from April. DStv says that the weak­ened rand makes things tough be­cause pro­gram­ming pur­chases are made in US dol­lars.
