Father's Day weekend on DStv boasts a movie line-up that will please hopeless romantics and mucho dads alike.

It’s Father’s Day soon and you’re trying to get ready for a happy-daddy weekend. Sharing the telly can be a tiresome task and as much as you want to watch all the goodies, Sunday is his day and that’s that.

Luckily with the DStv Explora, you can record anything you would like to watch later, or even just scroll through all the awesome titles on DStv Catch Up, available anytime, and anywhere with DStv Now.

Here are some awesome movies you’ll probably be itching to watch this weekend, but they won’t be at the top of mucho dad’s list:

Diana is at 10:25 on Friday, showing on M-Net Movies Showcase and tickling your royal fancy. Later on, grab the tissues for Dear John on M-Net Movies Stars at 17:40.
