DStv Summer Shake Up

Summer Shake Up!

Highlights 04 October 2022

It’s time to shake that schedule as DStv kick-start Summer with fresh, new shows.

Summer Shake Up!

The new season hasn’t just brought sunshine, swimming and sports back to our days, it’s Summer on TV, too. Shake up your expectations, dust off your TV viewing schedule, and start making plans. Can you already feel the excitement in the air?

We’re diving into the new telenovela Diepe Waters, filled with suspense, secrets, and forbidden love. We also meet some Housewives, who’re ready to shake Pretoria’s lazy Jacarandas, and we’re crossing knives in the kitchen with the new seasons of Come Dine With Me South Africa, and Kookpunt.

Sports fans can look forward to the URC Rugby Championship, Women’s Rugby World Cup and the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 matches. It’s about to get hot, so get ready for the DStv Summer Shake Up!

Come Dine With Me South Africa

Voiceover legend Dave Lamb returns to roast this season’s guests and hosts to perfection.
