Discovery Networks International has launched a general entertainment channel on South African pay-TV system DStv. The channel is targeted at female viewers, with lifestyle and factual storytelling featuring in the line-up.
Discovery’s Real Time will be available on DStv ‘EasyView’ package, as well as in the broadcaster’s Family, Access, Compact and Compact+ and Premium bundles.
DStv has a period of exclusivity before the channel launches on rival StarSat‘s bouquet.
We are excited to present Real Time to the market, and further expand and diversify our local portfolio offering,” said Amanda Turnbull, VP/GM for Discovery in Africa and the Middle East. “With an already successful suite of pay-TV brands, Real Time affords us the chance to bring our world-class content to even more audiences across South Africa, in the form of a channel designed to provide much-needed ‘me time’ to the modern African woman and her wider family.”
