CAPE TOWN

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOUASK -

We’re happy to help! Our TV guides in this is­sue have the most re­cent and up-to­date pro­gram­ming for the SABC, but here’s a handy break­down of what to ex­pect when the changes kick in this month:

SABC1 re­mains un­changed, while SABC2 will see changes mostly to their prime-time view­ing. SABC2’s big­gest change is week­days be­tween 18:30 and 20:00 – soapie 7de Laan (2000- cur­rent) moves to 19:00, which means that it will com­pete di­rectly with Isidingo (1998- cur­rent) on SABC3 and Rhythm City (2007- cur­rent) on e.tv. Afrikaans news moves from 19:00 to 19:30, while the Se­sotho/Setswana news moves into 7de Laan’s old times­lot at 18:30. US talk-show Dr Phil (2002- cur­rent) is be­ing dropped com­pletely from the 11:30 times­lot and re­placed by a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent lo­cal shows, while lo­cal talk­show Motswako (2003- cur­rent) goes on a break dur­ing Elec­tion De­bate (2016, Mon­daysThurs­days at 18:00) and will be back in Au­gust. A spe­cial once- off Erf­son­des (2007-2012) sea­sons 1-3 re­cap will air on Tues­day 19 July and Erf­son­des sea­son 4 (which first aired on SABC2 in 2011) will be re­peated at 20:00 from Tues­day 26 July. In ad­di­tion to 7de Laan, some other Afrikaans shows have new times­lots: sit­com Hester En Ester Bester (2007) moves to Wed­nes­days at 20:00, fol­lowed by Mooiloop! (2013- cur­rent) at 20:30. As for week­ends, the day­time pro­gram­ming stays the same but Satur­day and Sun­day evenings will see a few of your favourite shows, like Showville (2016- cur­rent) and Sk­wizas (2010- cur­rent) chang­ing times.

Hi tv­plus. Can you tell us how SABC’s plan to have 80% lo­cal con­tent is go­ing to af­fect our view­ing, please? – SA­MAN­THA,
