So what can you watch on DStv Now:

1. Lockdown

There are many reasons you may be addicted to season two of prison-drama, Lockdown, 1. Pamela Nomvete is kicking butt and taking names as the Governor, 2. You can’t get enough of the theme song, 3. The story-line is insane and the cliff-hanger craziness is off the charts. Not a fan yet? No worries, the Mzansi Magic series is building into a Boxset on DStv Now, so it’s not too late to get invested. You’ve got the time, happy holidays!

Watch all episodes of Lockdown Season 2 on DStv Now across multiple devices, and if you’re on the go, remember you can download episodes to the App before you leave your WiFi zone.

2. Empire

Hip hop, family drama and beautiful people. That’s Empire in a nut shell.  If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a cheat sheet: Spoiler alert, in Season 4, Empire Entertainment founder, Lucious Lyon has forgotten all that he was but is slowly putting together the bits and pieces of his life. We’re wondering, is this just an act? Is he using his amnesia to turn the page and start fresh with his family. Also what game is his nurse playing at? The other half of the power couple, Cookie Lyon is also wary of the woman, but we still love her clap backs.

Then there’s the war between the Lyon and the Dubois families. Phew issa lot fam! Who will take it? If you missed episode 9, where everything unraveled, you can still watch it, as well as the latest episodes online on DStv Catch Up

What to watch on DStv Now and Showmax, for people who hate people or the Festive Season :-)

3. Date My Family

Holiday time is family time but can you really trust your family to help you find love? This show, helps singletons score a date, by sending them on dates with their potential partner’s family, and is always a winner, right? Best thing, you get to enjoy all the awkward. Whew! We can’t wait to see the memes and LOL at the craziness of it all.

Make sure you’re up to date by watching the latest Date My Family episodes online with DStv Now.

Don’t miss out on the Twitter commentary either.

4. Black-ish

When a man has it all, a great job, a beautiful wife, four kids and a lovely home, he begins to wonder what’s missing. Four season’s in, and the Johnson family are still trying to figure it out. Get clued in on their shenanigans as they navigate their way around having a new baby in the house. Reasons to watch: It’s the show you put on when you need a laugh, when you need TV to entertain your guests for you, when you want to know how other families get it done. Watch Black-ish anytime, anywhere on DStv Now.  

5. Tali’s Wedding Diary

Although it’s brand new, everyone’s already talking about Showmax original, Tali’s Wedding Diary. With such an outrageous, hilarious build-up, the eight-episode mockumentary, from the creators of SuzelleDIY, is bound to be a full-on laugh-a-thon. Tali, portrayed by Julia Anastasopoulos, who also brings Suzelle DIY to life, is preparing for her big day, and you get to witness it all. Can anyone say bridezilla? All eight episodes are already available on Showmax, so start bingeing.

Note to self: Showmax is available at no charge to DStv Premium customers. So you really have no excuse.
