DStv: it’s a Happy Place!

It’s South Africa’s holiday season this April. And whether you’re staying home or out and about, seeing family or flying solo, we’re taking you to a Happy Place.

It’s all about the emotional journeys we take to get there.

Bear Grylls is here to take you on a Wild Adventure as he pushes his celebrity guests to the edge of what they can accomplish. It’s filled with energy, inspiration and some cool scenery. Transplant Season 2 takes us back into the all the highs and lows of the emergency room of a Canadian hospital, where Dr Bash is facing major romantic and professional hurdles. It’s a full body workout filled with nail biting tension and epic emotional journeys. And 1000LB Best Friends Season 1 brings us real-life patients who’re supporting one another along one of the toughest roads they’ll ever walk, as they set about changing everything in their lives, so that they can have lifesaving surgery.

South Africa steps up with 3 thrilling new series, too. Honey (DStv Channel 173) brings us Africa’s most beautiful reality talent show when Battle of The Ankara Season 1 starts on Monday, 11 April. Palesa Mokubung and Gert-Johan Coetzee judge as 10 designers from across Africa dazzle us with their design using their countries’ signature Ankara fabrics and patterns. Talent also steps up to entertain in the delightful outdoor cooking competition series Laat Die Potte Prut: Kampioene Season 1, which sets out to ask who really is the best of the best among SA’s potjiekos chefs. And Moja Love’s (DStv Channel 157) new reality series Ukugenwa Season 1 gives a true perspective on a cultural practice in which a man cares for brother’s widow and children by taking her as his wife.

April’s holidays are also family together-time. And DStv is delighted to offer up all sorts of shows that you can watch with your kids. The brand-new DreamWorks channel (DStv Channel 304), which is normally on the Premium, Compact Plus and Compact packages, is available in South Africa to all Access and Family customers via the open window throughout the month until Tuesday, 19 April.

Nickelodeon (DStv Channel 305) brings us the first-ever Star Trek series aimed at kids, Star Trek Prodigy Season 1. Star Trek Voyager fans will recognise the U.S.S. Protostar training’s hologram as USS Voyager Captain, Kathryn Janeway. The series will embrace the Star Trek values of tolerance, equality and scientific curiosity as well as showing what we can do when we work together. And then if you’re looking for something awwwwsome to enjoy with the kids, We Baby Bears Season 1 on Cartoon Network (DStv channel 301) is here! Get ready to offer your kids a big cardboard box of their own to take imaginative journeys in.
