There is no denying that over the recent years, the significance of content - particularly television content - has reached immeasurable heights. Throughout the years, Multichoice Namibia has cemented its position as an ICT anchor and recently hosted media and the creative industry at a thrilling showcase to reveal what’s in store for 2021.
“We wholeheartedly believe that we are more than just entertainment - we bring true value-for-money to our customers, and we consistently look for opportunities to bring Namibian talent to our audiences by providing platforms that continue to support storytelling,” Multichoice Namibia managing director Roger Gertze said.

New productions, returning series and more
Speaking on MultiChoice Group’s hyper-local strategy in obtaining countless hours of African content, Yolisa Phahle, the CEO of general entertainment and connected video, said: ‘’It is because of our customers that we can continue to focus our energy on growing the local industry and bringing content which is authentically yours. Relevant, local and, above all, entertaining and informative.”
On the local front, viewers can look forward to South African funny man Loyiso Gola’s stand-up special called ‘State of the Nation’ during April, an Africa Day pop-up channel featuring films and general entertainment from all over the continent in May, and the return of fan favourite, ‘Survivor SA’, in June.
On the international front, viewers will continue to be spoiled for choice as they can expect more blockbuster hits as well as riveting series returns.
Highly acclaimed series such as ‘The Flight Attendant’, featuring Kaley Cuoco, ‘Birds of Prey’, and titles skipping the theatres and making their way straight to you can be expected in the upcoming months as international titles continue to keep viewers glued to their screens and devices.
On the series side, Issa Rae and the rest of her girlfriends return for the final season of ‘Insecure’ on 1Magic, while Queen Latifah reigns supreme on ‘The Equalizer’ also on 1Magic. No matter what kind of content you fancy, DStv has got you this season!

Innovating with the times
MultiChoice’s business has successfully integrated into the digital migration era, having leveraged off technological transformation as well as adopting a #CustomerFirst approach.
“Our business has leapfrogged to being transformational through providing avenues that speak to innovation as showcased through our Explora adoption, our MyDStv and MyGOtv apps, the launch of DStv WhatsApp, enhanced decoder notifications, the availability of DStv and Catch Up video-on-demand service Showmax as well as our 18 real-time payment platforms,” the company said in a statement.
“It’s a new era for Multichoice Namibia as we will enable not only our employees, but our customers as well, to navigate the ever-changing landscape. Our vision is to be Africa’s number one entertainment platform with content and technology at its heart.”
