Four new CBS channels added to DStv

MultiChoice’s pay-TV platform, DStv signed a deal with international channel distributor, Chello Zone, to add four new CBS channels to its sub-Saharan satellite bouquet.

Two of the channels, CBS Drama and CBS Action, will mark their African debut on DStv next week on November 12 and will be later joined by Chello Zone’s children’s channel, JimJam, and Hollywood movie channel, MGM.

“Africa is a key territory for English language content and is the perfect home for our broad range of channels which offer viewers a fantastic mix of programming,” said Louise Cottrell, VP affiliate sales, Chello Zone.
