MultiChoice is set to boost its music and audio offering this September with the launch of a brand new music channel and the addition of two new radio stations.
TRACE Africa is set to hit DStv screens on 1 September 2016, as a localised music channel that’ll offer DStv customers exclusive music videos and documentaries from established and emerging Southern African artists.
The channel will serve as the premier destination for Southern African music lovers, featuring the best contemporary hits from Kwaito, House, Coupé-Décalé, Afro-pop, Rumba to Ndombolo.
TRACE Africa (326) will sit along TRACE Urban (325) and replace TRACE Sport Stars (currently on 188), which will no longer air on DStv from 30 August 2016. TRACE Africa will be available to DStv Premium, DStv Extra, DStv Compact and DStv Family customers in South Africa.
The new radio stations being added to the DStv audio package are Channel 7 FM (825), a Namibian-based non-denominational Christian community radio station which will launch on 1 September 2016 and Radio Islam (826), an Islamic cultural, award-winning community radio station which will launch on 15 September 2016.
