MultiChoice launches new bouquet, new channels
By DStv Online | Tue, 19 Mar 2013

MultiChoice is pleased to announce the introduction of a new DStv Family pack. The DStv Family pack will launch on 9 April and will be priced at R175 per month.

DStv Family will consist of more than 45 channels, 17 of which have not been on the lower bouquets before. These include a range of general entertainment, documentary and childrens’ channels such as Sony Entertainment, Discovery TLC, Nat Geo Wild, KykNET Musiek and Cartoon Network.

Collins Khumalo, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa, says: “We are very excited about DStv Family. It will provide customers more variety and choice as well as enhance the overall value of the DStv offering.”

Two additional new channels

On 9 April, two new channels will be added to the DStv platform – FOX on channel 125 and kykNET & Kie on channel 145. FOX will be available to DStv Premium customers; whilst kykNET & Kie will be available to DStv Family, Compact and Premium customers.

FOX will be available in both HD and SD as simulcast on channel 125 and will be a welcome addition to the general entertainment section of DStv Premium. This 24-hour channel will feature a number of exciting series such as Falling Skies, The Walking Dead, The Transporter – the TV series, Being Mandela, The Simpsons, House of Payne and Cougar Town.

kykNET & Kie is an expansion of kykNET’s existing offering on DStv and will, for the first time, make Afrikaans content available to DStv customers in the lower-tier packs namely DStv Family and DStv Compact. kykNET is currently only available to DStv Premium customers.

kykNET & Kie will give customers on DStv Compact and DStv Family access to some of the kykNET favourites such as Villa Rosa, Binneland, Toks en Tjops, Enuus and Dagbreek.

As kykNET & Kie will have a children’s slot in the morning and in the afternoons, the content that is currently available on KooWee will be included in these slots. Young viewers can look forward to catching their favourites such as Tjiff and Tjaff, Lappies, Pikin and Zimzim. That means that KooWee (channel 307) will no longer exist as a separate channel on DStv from 9 April onwards.
