Cape Town TV add to local content on Dstv

Posted by radio On October - 9 - 2013

On Thursday 10 October, Cape Town TV will join the ever-growing selection of regional and local content channels that have made DStv their platform of choice.

All DStv customers will be able to tune in to news and stories from the mother city on channel 263.



The addition of Cape Town TV will give DStv customers even more local and community stories from their own backyard. DStv is already the home of digital entertainment to a number of community television channels and a wide range of community radio stations, giving viewers across South Africa the opportunity to enjoy channels such as Tswane TV, Bay TV, Soweto TV and 1KZN.



“Joining the DStv platform gives us immediate access to more than 20 million viewers in more than 4,5 million DStv households”, says Cape Town TV  Station Manager, Karen Thorne. “Our funding as a community broadcaster is limited, joining the DStv family will enable us to access a larger audience and thus attract more advertising revenue. More funding means more stories from the Mother City.”

DStv already offers a large selection of local programmes on a range of local channels. These include all free to air channels such as SABC 1,2, 3 and ETV as well as channels that can be seen only on DStv – Mzansi Magic, Mzansi Music, Vuzu, Africa Magic and KykNET, to name a few.




Through these channels DStv brings its viewers local dramas, locally-produced movies, entertainment and educational programmes they can relate to. Many of these programmes have become runaway successes with a large following from an ever growing fan base.



“DStv has become a place where providers of television entertainment want to be. We welcome Cape Town TV to our family of channels. We are proud to be the carrier of some of the most popular local and international television entertainment brands. DStv offers our customer a one stop shop for their television entertainment needs in great digital quality,” said Collins Khumalo, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa.
