Choose Joy and make DStv your host with the most this festive season
No matter who’s hosting the family festivities, DStv will keep you entertained
The festive season is so close, you can almost touch it. Now, we’re looking forward to mingling with friends and family, and deciding who’ll take home the prize for best holiday host this year. Will it be the well-informed uncle, who’s eager to impress with his worldly knowledge? The less-than-attentive cousin, who simply leaves you to fend for yourselves? Or Mom and Gran, who are happy to talk about all the drama – both off and on-screen.
No matter where you’re spending your festive season, DStv will be there every step of the way. And if your host needs a bit of help, these entertainment options should keep the conversation going. Here’s what to expect in the line of entertainment, depending on your host…
The well-informed uncle
You might not watch the news every day at home, but you’re almost duty-bound to spend some time catching up on the latest events in Uncle’s house with DStv.
The Daily News will keep you up to date with the latest happenings from around Africa and the world, with features on business, sport, technology, politics, and health. Keep the conversation topical with Uncle when you tune in on Africa News, DStv Channel 417, every day at 09:00 CAT.
The ever-absent cousin
Visiting this cousin’s house is like, ‘Great to see you! Oh, you’re going out again?’ Between work, shopping, and friends, they’re hardly ever there. But you can keep yourself entertained with the MyDStv app and create your own selection of content. Here’s a top movie suggestion for you and the family – Made of Honor.
This charming rom com centres on a woman’s male best friend who celebrates his philandering ways until the moment she announces her wedding. It’s only then that he realises his love for her. But as official maid of honour at the event, will he be able to win her affections before she walks down the aisle? Follow the hilarious outcome on M-Net Movies 4, DStv Channel 108 at 16:30 CAT on Sunday, 28 November.
It’s always a treat spending time with Mom, no matter what’s on the box. You might even grow to love her favourite reality show.
Deal or No Deal Nigeria presents an African take on the well-known show, presented by John Fashanu, an ex-footballer and now TV host. It’s a somewhat addictive game show where contestants have to decide whether to take what they can get from the mystery boxes, or hold out for the big prize. You and mom can catch all the action on Africa Magic Family, DStv Channel 154, Tuesday to Friday at 03:00 CAT.
Dear old Gran
Gear up for an abundance of soapies and dramas when you spend time at granny’s house. Could this be one of her top picks right now?
I Dare You to Leave, a riveting telenovela, has it all: power, selfishness, envy, and desire, as well as a pair of star-crossed lovers. Will their love endure? You’ll have to tune in to see how they cope. Delve into Gran’s favourite drama on TL Novelas, DStv Channel 133, every Monday to Friday at 19:00 CAT.
