Aunjanue Ellis and Cuba Gooding Jr in The Book of Negroes

Catch all the shows you love on DStv.

"He’s just not my type." "I’m looking for something a little specific." "She’s way out of your league!" Ah, the problems of our generation (It's no longer about death and taxes). We all want to have something in common with someone, hence the relationship deal breaker, “He’s just not my type.”

It’s already hard to find your type out there so, at DStv, we make it easier for you by having all types; you just have to choose.

1. Romantic

Are you the romantic type who likes to be courted properly with flowers and serenades before they can say yes to a first date? I bet you are also the type who doesn’t mind holding hands in public. If so, then you’d fit right in with the world of telenovelas like the new For Love & Justice that will give you some tips on how to get your love game on. Like Lucia and Daniel, you just have to find a way to fight for true love amid all the hate, revenge, misunderstanding and backstabbing. Catch this tale of love on Mondays at 17:00 on Telemundo.


2. Mysterious

Some people are so mysterious, you have to peel them like an onion but you still wouldn’t know what was hidden underneath. But it wouldn’t hurt to try, right? Or maybe you need a little motivation from the Pretty Little Liars whose lives have been one mysterious roller-coaster they can’t run away from. Tune in every Thursday at 22:00 on Vuzu Amp and try to unwrap the mystery that is A. In case you miss it, it is also available on DStv Catch Up on your DStv Explora.


3. Funny

There are two types of people you must appreciate – those who feed you and those who make you laugh. Have you met Mr. Bolo in One in a Million every Wednesday at 20:00 on Maisha Magic East? I can’t promise he’ll feed you but he’ll surely get your ribs worked up together with his equally "crazy" family. But if you need someone funny who might also give you food, I suggest dropping in on The Big Bang Theory scientists every Wednesday at 20:30 on M-Net (102), also available on DStv Catch Up. FYI, Penny has been free-loading on their food ever since she moved in. We all know how long that has been.


4. Inquisitive

Being inquisitive will take you to places you’ve never imagined. You’ll discover things about other people’s lives – life-changing information, some that is none of your business and others which are definitely your business. People who are inquisitive always have something juicy to share just like the Devious Maids every Monday at 22:00 on Vuzu Amp, also on DStv Catch Up on DStv Explora.

Being inquisitive also gives you the information you need like in Proof where doctors team to prove there is life after death, every Friday at 20:30 on M-Net.


5. Fighter

Do you have the fighting spirit in you? You know, that little voice that doesn't leave you alone when you stumble and fall, it always nags “on your feet soldier!” Meet your match in The Book of Negroes where an African slave, Aminata Diallo, will fight with everything she’s got to return to her homeland. You might even channel some of her survival instincts, stay tuned to this new miniseries every Monday at 23:10 on BET (Channel 129). You could also learn a thing or two about survival and fighting back in the new Black Sails that premiers on Wednesday, 18 August at 21:20 on HISTORY (186). If you miss these two shows, you can always Catch Up with them later on your DStv Explora.
