MultiChoice adds Discovery’s HGTV to DStv
5 June 2019
MultiChoice is adding US network HGTV channel to its pay TV service, DStv, via a deal with media giant Discovery.
HGTV offers programmes about gardening, real estate and home improvement.
In 2017, MultiChoice experimented with a three-week trial run of HGTV on DStv’s Travel channel, which was well received by subscribers.
At present, HGTV is available in the US, Asia, Canada, Australia, with a South African roll-out due on July 15.
Henry Windridge, head of brand for Africa and the Middle East at Discovery, said: “Discovery is thrilled that MultiChoice has decided to add HGTV to its DStv platform. Viewers will find that there is a lot more to HGTV than just shows about decorating. Discovery is excited about the content HGTV will be offering on DStv.”
