We are excited to announce that customers will have a new trusted health and overall wellness source through The Good Life Network, a health and development pop-up channel that will launch on channel 199 this World AIDS Day - 1 December.

The channel will be available to customers on the DStv Access, DStv Family, DStv Compact, DStv Compact Plus and DStv Premium packages for four months until 31 March 2016.   

The Good Life Network is focused on content that contributes towards positive individual and societal health outcomes and to promote lifestyle changes and wellness in order to change behaviours and shift lifestyle attitudes. DStv customers can look forward to shows that cover nutrition, health and fitness, human rights, youth sexuality, HIV and TB, as well as consumer and gender rights.

The Good Life Network programming is diverse and original, including offerings such as Health Busters (breaking down myths), Food Police (helping you design healthier meals), SuperDoc (critical women’s health issues), Village Shrink (your journey to better mental health), Cook for Life (cooking up delicious and healthy African meals), Get Up Stand Up (celebrating those making a difference), Fit Life (inspired fitness outside the gym), Health Bulletins (citizen journalism combined with headline stories), Straight Up (youth sexuality) and Icheke (check your health), which will promote routine health screening. 

“In keeping with the successful edutainment model, The Good Life Network will service a consumer appetite for entertaining health related content and services, which ultimately empower individuals and communities to take greater control over their own health and development,” says Krisen Pather, Head of Edutainment for Ochre Media.

The Good Life Network will be available to DStv customers on the DStv Access, DStv Family, DStv Compact, DStv Compact Plus and DStv Premium packages on channel 199 for four months, starting on 1 December to 31 March 2016.
