The holidays are finally within sight, and with them come more time to spend with family, more time to watch your favourite sports, and more time to catch up on the hottest shows and movies.
Make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun by treating yourself and the fam to an upgraded DStv package. Packed with all the entertainment you could ever want, now’s the time to make this December something to remember.
No more FOMO with DStv Premium
First off, when you upgrade, you get access to Showmax at no extra cost. Combine that with BoxOffice and the DStv app and you get more entertainment – all day, every day. There’s no more FOMO; if you missed an episode of your favourite telenovela, simply pop onto these premium platforms and catch up.
Now, let’s talk movies. With DStv Premium, you also get access to our movie bundles, so you can add additional movie channels to your existing DStv packages at a fraction of the price!
Enjoy every moment with access to over 135 DStv channels, including around 16 SuperSport channels, edutainment, award-winning entertainment, news, local content, the latest blockbuster movies, and exciting pop-up channels – on up to five devices!
Let’s take a closer look at the types of entertainment you can expect from this premium package.
Movies and entertainment
There’s nothing better to help you get into the festive spirit than Christmas movies. M-Net Movies 1 is a must-watch if this is your jam. Expect heart-warming reunions, romantic frolicking under the mistletoe and some big laughs this holiday. So, start off your Christmas-movie marathon with Last Christmas, a holiday romcom both you and your partner will love. Get the popcorn ready Sunday, 19 December at 20:00 CAT on M-Net Movies 1, DStv Channel 104.
Documentaries and lifestyle
Frankly, there never seems to be enough time during the year to learn something new about the world (or feed your inner-conspiracy theorist). For the whole of December, get ready to look beyond what you know as the History Channel, DStv Channel 186, zones in on UFOs. UFOs: Secret Missions Exposed presents all their theories of what they think the government is hiding from us. Make your own conclusions Saturday, 11 December at 21:05 CAT.
But sometimes you need to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth. Tune in on Sunday, 12 December for dramatic re-enactments of actual UFO classified files and expert interviews on UFOs: Top Secrets Aliens Files at 03:20 CAT.
And to crown off your UFO-themed marathon, check out UFOs: Secret Alien Technology as the researchers look at famous, and lesser known, UFO reports that some believe have been purposely hidden from the public on Saturday, 11 December at 08:15 CAT. Or check out UFOs: The White House Files to see if some of the biggest US presidents were even aware of what was happening under their noses Monday, 13 December at 13:20 CAT.
Didn’t even know SuperSport had around 16 channels? Well, you’re in for a treat these holidays. Just imagine any type of sport, and SuperSport probably covers it. There’s so much more for every sport lover to discover on DStv Premium. Not only that, but we have a huge line-up of back-to-back English Premier League matches scheduled on 26 December that no football fan should miss!
Kids and teens
Give yourself the peace of mind that your kids are only exposed to the most wholesome of content. The kids also win when you upgrade with access to more great content for youngsters. For one, Nickelodeon is hosting a Holiday Marathon with must-watch shows, such as Henry Danger, The Thundermans, Game Shakers, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Casagrandes, Nicky Ricky Dicky & Dawn as well as School of Rock. From funny and adventurous to educational and thought-provoking, make sure the kids tune in from 18 to 26 December on Nickelodeon, DStv Channel 305.
News and commerce
Last but certainly not least, make sure you stay updated with everything that’s happening in the world. Get ready for news broadcasts in all imaginable languages and shows that celebrate the innovative achievements of everyday people. A great starting point is African Voices Changemakers, which shows how smart people are making the world a better place for their communities. Catch the airing Tuesday, 14 December at 19:45 CAT on CNN, DStv Channel 401.
On top of all the additional content you get when upgrading, the DStv Premium package is an ideal festive present to keep the family safely seated and bonded together this holiday season.
