Something newz on DStv

19 July 2019 | Art and Entertainment

The channel will be available to active customers on all DStv packages.

MultiChoice Africa is delighted to announce the launch of a new 24-hour news service, Newzroom Afrika, on the DStv platform across the continent on channel 405 from Monday, 15 July 2019. The channel will be available to active customers on all DStv packages.

The expansion of news service comes just two months after it launched in South Africa to delight viewers with programming that includes Your View Africa Round Table, hosted by South African talk-show veteran, JJ Tabane. The show takes an in-depth look at issues across the continent while interacting and engaging with relevant subject experts. Another show to look out for is Newz World, whose lead anchor Vic Naidoo gives a round-up of continental and global news with audience engagement and an alternative to traditional news bulletins in the form of roundtable discussions.

DStv viewers on the continent will also have the pleasure of interacting with respected news practitioners such as lead anchor, Cathy Mohlahlana, South African politics stalwart, Thulasizwe Simelane and self-confessed sports-fiend, Marc Lewis, alongside many other on-air personalities who form part of the channel's compelling line-up.

Yolisa Phahle, CEO of general entertainment at MultiChoice said that the company is proud to bring this news channel.

“The addition of Newzroom Afrika will increase the diversity of voices and perspectives in Africa's news media space. We remain committed to delivering quality news and current affairs that keep our customers updated and informed about what's happening in the world,” said Phahle.

Everything from breaking news and in-depth analysis, to expert panel discussions, business and sport is covered in a refreshing style unique to the channel. Cutting-edge systems and technology allow Newzroom Afrika to be broadcast in high-definition, with unmatched remote broadcasting capabilities that give journalists the freedom to roam wherever the news takes them.

Newzroom Afrika is available for streaming on-the-go via smart phones, tablets or desktops through the DStv Now app and will be available on all DStv packages.
