    Sheess, more crap that DSTV will repeat on multiple channels for the next 10 years.... And advertise them as well.. When internet speeds get a bit better, I am going to can the DSTV Premium and go Netflix.... Cheaper than box Office, much wider range, and you don't have to put up with DSTV continuity screw ups....

      Urgh. The only one I watched and will watch is BBT. The rest suck. Reality tv and game shows suck. Absolutely DDD! Go the netflix way, Dstv in SA is horrible and way too expensive for what you get.

    masterchef SA is a joke ... the winner will be another talentless family member or friend of the big boss of DSTV ..

  • Marni van Emmenis - 2014-07-17 08:44

    Does anyone have an idea when "The Americans" will return? It was scheduled for Feb, but was postponed and so far we have had nothing!
