Reality & factual series & specials on DStv Compact this October

DStv has a glittering October lined up for Compact subscribers. We’re rolling out the red carpet live with the 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards and the crowning of a new Miss South Africa.

Look out for the 20th anniversary return of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, now hosted by Jeremy Clarkson. There are two spooky season special series: Alyson Hannigan hosts Outrageous Pumpkins, while The Big Bake gives us four creative monster-cake themed episodes and more.

If you just want to see people living their best lives, look out for Nomalanga “The Flame” Shozi chatting to her celeb friends in the new season of Behind The Story. Faith “Queen Twerk” Nketsi is back with a new season of Have Faith.And see how the other half lives in Below The Deck: Sailing Yacht and new The Bradshaw Bunch. If glam houses are your jam, there’s George Clarke’s Remarkable Renovations, and HGTV’s (DStv channel 177) Outgrown and Selling the Big Easy.

Love human drama? From families in crisis to true crime, it’s here. Local series Away For Repair sends pairs with problems into the wild to fix things, Face 2 Face busts love triangles, and SA’s most glamorous traditional healers are back in Izangoma Zodumo. And three returning true crime series will show you Halloween’s real monsters.

All this and more on DStv Compact this October.
