AfricaXP is proud to announce the launch of Trigger on DStv this month! The channel will be available on channel 188.

Trigger is a general entertainment channel for the male viewer who knows what he wants; an entertaining, uncomplicated channel that combines all the things a man needs and finds interesting. A bit of macho, a bit of detective work, a bit action, a bit of sexy, a bit of sport, and a bit of advice - content that will Trigger his fancy.

Head of Channels at AfricaXP Francois Schreuder says: “The channel has been designed in significant part with MultiChoice in mind as the platform to premiere the channel. We don’t do generic, we do targeted - and Trigger needed to connect and resonate with male viewers in order to keep them engaged.”
