It means that DStv Compact subscribers will be able to watch programming like The Thundermans and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Nickelodeon, Little Charmers on Nick Jr.,Deadbeat on Comedy Central and Bring It! on Lifetime.
There’s also the start of the big-buzz new drama series UnREAL on Lifetime starting on 16 July at 20:45 which DStv Compact subscribers will now be able to see.
UnREAL which just started on Lifetime in America, takes place behind-the-scenes of a fictitious reality dating competition show, Everlasting.
It follows a desperate TV producer trying to spruce up the ratings by manipulating the contestants and the audience by hyping up the outrageous drama, pseudo conflict and shameful relationships.
