You might want to stock up on some snacks because DStv is bringing the whole family to the couch this festive season – no matter when you like to get in your TV time.
With a long line-up of entertainment for all ages showing at all times of day, there won’t be a dull moment this December.
Here are some of the best movies and shows coming straight to your living room from when you wake up right until your head hits the pillow.

Memorable mornings
Ben 10 vs The Universe: The Movie
This one is sure to keep the youngsters glued to the television while parents kick back and relax for a while. Vilgax, the intergalactic alien warlord, returns to destroy planet Earth, and it’s up to Ben and his wacky entourage to stop him. Don’t let your kids miss Ben 10’s epic adventures in space as they blast off on Saturday, 12 December, at 10:10 on Cartoon Network, DStv channel 301.

The River Wild
Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon were both nominated for Golden Globe Awards for this fast-paced thriller. What starts off as a rafting holiday quickly turns into a nightmare as a family is forced to help two armed killers escape down treacherous white-water rapids. This classic airs on Tuesday, 15 December, at 11:15 on TNT, DStv channel 137.

Unmissable daytime television

Jingle Belle
Nothing lifts the mood during the holidays like a feel-good Christmas movie. Two high-school sweethearts meet up years later to perform a duet for a small town’s Christmas Eve pageant. With Isabelle writing the jingle and Mike running the show, there are bound to be some fireworks before their big performance. Tune in on Monday, 21 December, at 14:35 on Lifetime, DStv channel 131.

Location, Location, Location (Season 23)
If you’re a fan of real-estate and reality shows, you’ll love this one. Follow Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer as they explore London’s humble abodes and quaint cottages with the utmost attention to detail and witty commentary. It airs from 7 December until 12 December at 17:00 on The Home Channel, DStv channel 176.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
Disney’s live-action retelling of the classic Christmas ballet tells the dazzling story of an ordinary girl who is transported into a magical world of wonders and learns that she is a princess. When the toy soldiers arrive, things are not as sweet as they originally seemed. Watch it on Sunday, 13 December, at 17:05 on M-Net Movies 1, DStv channel 108.

Late-night entertainment

Isono
Africa’s most anticipated telenovela is back and there’s going to be drama – lots of it. Isono is all about “the masks we wear and the secrets we hide”. It features an award-winning cast and an unpredictable plot that is rich with authentic local storytelling. It starts tonight, 7 December, and airs Monday to Thursday at 21:00 on BET, DStv channel 129.

A Christmas Surprise
When a student comes back home for Christmas to come out to his family, his seemingly traditional loved ones take the opportunity to bring a whole bunch of skeletons out of the closet. Tune in for this heart-warming festive film about family and acceptance in the modern age on Saturday, 12 December, at 21:00 on M-Net, DStv channel 101/102 (East).

With this wide selection of movies and shows fit for the whole family at any time of the day, you won’t have to fight over the remote this holiday. You can also take control of your viewing experience and livestream all of these by downloading the MyDStv app!
