Reality And Kids Entertainment DStv Has To Offer

This is the golden age of television and as South Africa’s leading authority on on-screen entertainment, DStv brings you larger-than-life series…With everything from movies adapted for television to “guilty-pleasure” reality TV, there’s bound to be something for everyone in 2017.

Reality
MTV’s Real World in the 1990s, Survivor in the 2000s, and Big Brother in the same decade, are shows credited with changing the face of television and popularising the modern reality series format. Contestants’ spontaneous, unscripted interactions with one another and the world around them, mixed with drama, personal conflict and entertainment are the ingredients that make this genre so popular. A few years ago you would’ve never publicly admitted that you’re a reality series fan, but today the genre encompasses makeovers; celebrity exposes; dating shows; talent competitions; lifestyle changing shows and unscripted dramas that will keep you glued to your screens. A pop-culture phenomenon currently on DStv, E! Entertainment’s reality success story Keeping Up with the Kardashians has become one of the longest-running reality television series in the USA; celebrating its tenth year on the air with season 13 due to start later in March 2017. US hit show The Bachelorette returns to VUZU AMP for a 13 season in May; LA Hair season five in June; Real Housewives of New Jersey season seven is due to start in August and Tamar and Vince season five in November.

Kids
Parents are eager to entertain their kids, but kids shape their own viewing habits – their preferred choice of content, as well as where, when and how they want to consume it. With ten kids’ channels and a dedicated section on the DStv Now App, the little ones will have countless hours entertainment in the company of DStv. These future customers see the world differently and for them the digital, multi-screen environment is already the norm. Encouraged by their parents, kids increasingly stream TV on mobile devices – binge watching and rewatching their favourite shows on any device, including tablets, computers and phones. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, adapted from the movie with the same title, will be coming to Boomerang in May, and Dorothy of Oz in September. Current Disney Channel favourites Jessie ; Lab Rats; Miles from Tomorrow ; Girl Meets World and Violetta will continue; with exciting new edition Mickey and the Roadster Racers starting on Disney Junior in April. Sofia the First as well as Doc McStuffins will be returning to the channel in June. New shows on Cartoon Network include: Yokai Watch in April, The Amazing World of Gumball in May, Lego Nexo Knights in June and Transformers: Robots in Disguise in July; while shows returning to the channel include The Powerpuff Girls in April; Ben 10 in May and We Bare Bears in August.

Doccies And Supersized Entertainment DStv Has To Offer

Despite the rise of on-demand internet streaming services, television remains content king! In the pop-culture landscape, this is still the most popular way to watch content and in South Africa, DStv takes the lead in the content provider pack. Series have become the new movies with popular storytellers, directors and actors making their appearance on the small screen. TV shows are now filmed like movies, with great writing, creative storylines, talented actors, beautiful scenery, and complicated characters viewers can relate to.

Supersized Entertainment
DStv customers can now tune in to their favourite series when it suits them, thanks to DStv’s multi-platform viewing environment. Whether you’re a fan of fast-paced, adrenaline-fuelled action; emotionally-laden drama; a gritty crime saga; sword-fighting epics; or sidesplitting comedy, we’ve got you covered.

M-Net’s magical entertainment does not stop, with first seasons of brand new blockbuster series Taken (started 9 March), Training Day (starts 18 May), Powerless (starts 3 July), American Housewife (starts 14 June), Kevin Can Wait (starts 3 May), Man With a Plan (starts 31 May), Trial and Error (starts 10 April), and Vice Principal (starts 15 September).

Doccies
What makes a documentary successful? Was it expertly crafted, influential, impactful, beloved, form-defining, a hit at the box office? The best documentaries leave viewers in
that Aha! moment, long after the credits have rolled – strangely fulfilled and armed with new knowledge. Audiences yearn for the truth; the facts; the real world documented in an educational way – and that’s exactly what they get from the conversation-starting, often controversial, award-winning documentary series on DStv.
Watch out for Royal Season on ITV Choice; Genius , the story of Albert Einstein on Fox in April; Origins as well as The Story of God season two on Nat Geo. Fans of the true crime genre can look forward to Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery, Murder Calls, and Scene of the Crime with Tony Harris – all on ID Xtra in April; 24 to Life season one and World’s Toughest Prisons on Crime+Investigation.
