MultiChoice adds the fashion channel Fashion One already available on StarSat to DStv to replace the dumped FashionTV from March.


MultiChoice is adding Fashion One to DStv from March as a new fashion travel to replace the dumped FashionTV that's going dark on Sunday.

Rival satellite pay-TV platform StarSat, operated by On Digital Media (ODM) and StarTimes Media SA added Fashion One two years ago in February 2013.

Now the fashion channel from Fashion One LLC that was started by Michael Gleissner in 2010 will be available on DStv as well.

Fashion One will be on channel 178, on the same DStv Premium, DStv Extra, DStv Compact, DStv Family and DStv Access packages that FashionTV was available on. MultiChoice will show Fashion One in 48 countries.

"We are thrilled about the collaboration with MultiChoice which brings us to the position of number one fashion channel in Africa," says Fashion One. "The channel will introduce African audiences to fashion like they've never seen it before, as well as great stories about local fashion and lifestyles".

"Fashion One will give our DStv customers front row seats to the biggest international fashion shows and runways that they've become used to seeing," says Aletta Alberts, MultiChoice's head of content.

"They'll also be introduced to a rich blend of local fashion, entertainment and lifestyle shows."

Programming on Fashion One include Style Wars, Eco Fashion and Fashion on a Plate.
