EbonyLife TV channel extends its reach to South Africa and Southern Africa on DStv from 10 September.

MultiChoice is making EbonyLife TV (DStv 165) available to DStv subscribers in South Africa and Southern Africa from 10 September, just over a year after the black entertainment and lifestyle TV channel launched on 1 July 2013 on DStv in West, East and Central Africa.

At the time MultiChoice said there's no plans to launch EbonyLife TV in South Africa, although insiders said EbonyLifeTV would launch by the end of 2013 in South Africa, but it took a year longer.

"We're extremely excited about EbonyLife TV's extension into the Southern African and South African markets, barely a year after our launch," says Mo Abudu, the executive chairperson and CEO of EbonyLife TV in a statement.

 "This expansion is due to our success in the rest of Africa. We're proud of the fact that we are 100% homegrown," says Mo Abudu.
