Two new channels are coming to your multichoice DStv screen this month which includes Movie Room and News Central.
The News Central ‘News Central’ which is will be live beginning from 1st August, 2022 is a 24-hour news platform focusing on genuine and accurate storytelling.
It will be available to DStv Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, Access, Yanga, and Confam audiences. News Central, which will take on the DStv channel 422 space, is being added to all the DStv packages to ensure that customers can get a full range of narratives about every event in the continent.
Rosemary Afolahan, Head of Commercial, News Central Media Ltd., said, “as a premium African news brand, we are focused on telling African stories with honesty, dignity and respect to change the single-minded narrative of the continent.
Movie Room will offer entertaining local and international movies 24/7, from big blockbuster hits to unforgettable cinema classics,” said the group’s co-founder Thokozani Nkosi.
“Cinema buffs, action aficionados, and casual viewers alike will be spoilt for choice.”
Nkosi said the channel’s line-up would be carefully curated to cater for every mood — ranging from “edge-of-your-seat” action hits to comforting old favorites.
The group would use its experience setting up Newzroom Afrika to make smart decisions in its approach to the channel.
Movie Room will be available on channel 113 from 27 August 2022. MultiChoice is yet to confirm which of its DStv packages will offer the new channel.
The channel is the fourth new entry to DStv’s catalogue during 2022, following Dreamworks and Kix, which were added in March 2022, and NHK World-Japan in July.
