DStv Compact lays down the law this August


From FBI to Very Scary People, DStv Compact is out for justice

DStv Compact lays down the law this August

DStv Compact is all about the law this August, with eight drama series about cops, lawyers, judges and agents, from FBI and FBI: Most Wanted to The Equalizer and Your Honor. Even The Flash is here to fight for what’s right.

There are also three documentary shows about the search for real-life justice. Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock talks about her experiences with racism in the pop music world, we explore an international scandal surrounding sex trafficker Peter Nygård, and we meet some more Very Scary People.

Legally awesome drama series


The season is off to a topical start with the agents wearing masks, thanks to COVID-19, and investigating a mass shooting perpetrated by a white nationalist organisation. And Maggie’s back from undercover work with a new love.
