Stories worth telling on DStv Compact this October

DStv Compact is jam-packed with stories worth telling this October.

The highly relatable local comedy series Black Tax returns, and new local shows – Umkhokha and Grootboom & Sons – will prove that there’s no drama like family drama! On the international front it’s all about friendship and ambition as Tyler Perry’s Sistas returns along with Games People Play. And detective Baptiste is back on the case, too.

At the movies, it’s Shocktober on Lifetime (DStv channel 131) and that means scary movies every Saturday and Sunday at 19:20 like the brand-new Killer In The Guest House, with a special all-weekend Spookathon on 30 and 31 October. Lifetime will also be airing the third in their series of royal movies, Harry & Meghan 3: Escaping The Palace.

Local movie lovers, keep an eye out for the 7 Deadly Sins series of movies on BET (DStv channel 129), and seven is action fans’ lucky number, too, because Tsui Hark’s Seven Swords is coming to KIX (DStv channel 114).

All this and much more on DStv Compact, this October.

Six stories starting!
