Discovery Inc.'s Real Time added to MultiChoice's DStv in the rest of Africa as well.

Discovery Inc.'s Real Time channel will be added to MultiChoice's DStv and GOtv satellite pay-TV service in the rest of Africa as well from Monday 15 July 2019.

The channel addition comes after Real Time was added to DStv for subscribers in South Africa, and to China's StarTimes in Africa and StarTimes' StarSat brand in South Africa.

Real Time is an entertainment channel featuring programmes based on real lives, nature, crime and medical lives targeting a female audience.

"We are incredibly excited to present Real Time to an even wider audience in the market, and further expand and diversify our local portfolio offering," says Amanda Turnbull, vice president and general manager for Discovery in Africa and the Middle East, in a statement.

"With an already successful suite of pay-TV brands, Real Time affords us the chance to bring our world-class content to even more audiences across Africa, in the form of a channel designed to provide much-needed 'me time' to the modern African woman and her wider family."

Yolisa Phahle, The MultiChoice Group CEO of general entertainment, says in a statement that "MultiChoice is excited to welcome this new channel which will give viewers access a wide variety of compelling television shows from Discovery Inc. on our platforms".
