DStv extends SABC News channel outreach across Africa

Pay-TV operator, MultiChoice, has extended the outreach of the South African public broadcaster’s 24-hour TV news channel, SABC News on its satellite pay-TV platform, DStv, to the rest of the continent.

“The SABC News channel is being added to DStv across the Africa continent on 22 May as part of our celebration of Africa Month. We believe this channel will be particularly relevant to the hundreds of thousands of expatriate South Africans who live in other parts of the continent,” said a MultiChoice statement.

SABC News was launched on DStv in August 2013 after a million dollar deal between SABC and MultiChoice.
