After six weeks of riveting reality TV bonanza viewing, the first season of Love Island SA is set to end on an all-time high as the series has become the top Video On Demand content on the DStv App for Premium viewers, ahead of popular TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Boer Soek n’ Vrou

With just under 1 million views to date on the DStv app, Love Island SA has proven to be a success – captivating the hearts and interests of South Africans across the country. Another notable achievement for Love Island SA is that the live viewing during the 9:30 pm daily broadcasts has improved by 21% since the launch on 28 February.

Further proving the resonance of the show with the South African audience, the impressive DStv Rewards giveaway of an all-expenses-paid getaway with five friends to the Love Island SA Villa for the ultimate Love Island SA experience, received over 6 000 entries. The winner of this competition will be announced during the grand finale on Sunday evening. The Love Island SA production also proudly created over 200 job opportunities over the six-week production period.
