It’s a brand new year! Welcome to 2018, where on DStv, we continue to bring you the best entertainment on TV.
From the return of our favourite series to the premiere of new and exciting series, blockbuster movies, fascinating documentaries, cartoons, live sport from around the world, this month, there’s also the start of award season to get glammed up for.
Here are just some of the programming you can look forward to enjoying on DStv this month.
New Year’s Day Football
There’s no better way to start the new year, than getting behind your favourite team on New Year’s Day.
Live and in HD, SuperSport will screen five matches from the Premier League on 1 January, with another four matches kicking off at 21:45 on 2 January.
And then on Wednesday 3 January at 21:45, there’s a biggie: Arsenal v Chelsea.
With the back-to-back matches over the festive season, and the anxiety of the transfer window, football fans are in for a real treat!
From 8 January, we need to be red carpet ready as awards season kicks off with the 75th Golden Globe Awards.
Hosted by late-night TV host Seth Meyers, we can’t wait to see the red carpet fashion and find out who will win the coveted awards.
Some of our favourite shows, including This Is Us, Big Little Lies and black-ish have all received nominations.
On 22 January, Hollywood will recognise their fellow actors at the Screen Actor Guild Awards.
And on 29 January, the stars will come out for the biggest night in music – the 60th Grammy Awards. Hosted for the second year in a row by James Corden, we are ready to feel the beat, sing along and see who will walk away with the most awards of the evening.
Watch the 60th Grammy Awards live from New York City on Monday 29 January at 03:00 on Vuzu AMP, or set a recording.

Grand Slam action
Will Serena Williams return to the court for the Australian Open?
Last year, the Tennis Queen won the tournament for the seventh time, while pregnant! We can’t wait to see how she continues to dominate on the court in 2018.
And with Grigor Dimitrov winning the 2017 ATP Finals, how far will he go in the first grand slam of the year?
Competition in tennis is tough, but we know the players will serve their best shots.
