We may not get around with jetpacks and hoverboards just yet, but one thing 2020 is delivering in buckets is great entertainment, streamed straight to your screen of choice. Stay in bed and binge-watch your favourite series on Catch Up and DStv Now. Visit and watch DStv on your laptop, tablet or phone. Here’s what’s hot in January:

Nancy Drew S1

Get ready for a much darker adaptation of the classic detective novels! A family tragedy strikes and Nancy (played by Kennedy McMann) is quickly caught up in a twisted murder investigation. Watch it online here.

Why Women Kill

A dark comedy anthology about three very different women over three very different decades in the walls of the same house. From the blatant chauvinism that 60s housewife Beth Ann (Ginnifer Goodwin) faces, to Lucy Liu’s husband coming out as gay in the 80s and Kirby Howell-Baptiste’s woke millennial open marriage falling apart, it’s sublime!

New Amsterdam S2

Season two of this heart-stopping medical drama starts three months after the shocking season one cliffhanger as we learn the truth about what actually happened on that dreadful day in episode one titled “Your Turn”. Watch it on Catch Up.
