Openview launching new Afrikaans channel called ePlesier

eMedia has announced it will be launching a new Afrikaans channel on its Openview satellite broadcasting service — ePlesier.

The new channel will feature all-day-long broadcasts of e-TV's range of Afrikaans-dubbed Turkish telenovals, including Gebroke Harte, Bittersoet, Stilleto Vendetta, Kurt & Shura, Die Put, and Vierspel Vuurspel.

New episodes will be shown on weekdays, with Omnibus repeats on Saturdays and Sundays for those who want to catch up.
 
People may be laughing but this is becoming a big thing in SA and some of those are quite good as well. Good if it's eating in MC's monopoly so they no longer treat an indigenous language as a premium service.
 
Didn't even know this was a thing.
It is, and it's actually pretty ****ing good (well, depending on the series, but the VA is usually good). It's what got me into Turkish series and my interest in Turkey in the first place.
 
There’s also an Afrikaans Who wants to be a millionaire. Thought that’s not fair but each to their own, if that’s what the viewers want and can justify the viewer ratings then fine I guess

Will this be available on eVOD? Would be interested if it is.

Yeah. The main pull of Openview is, is that you pay R500 once-off (costs R1499 with installation), no monthly fee like DSTV.
