MultiChoice Namibia hosts virtual Content Showcase revealing what’s in store for 2021.


Windhoek, April 20-There is no denying that over the recent years, the significance of content, particularly television content has reached immeasurable heights. Throughout the years, MultiChoice Namibia has cemented our position as an ICT anchor and recently hosted media and the creative industry to a thrilling Showcase revealing what’s in store for 2021.

“We wholeheartedly believe that we are more than just entertainment – we bring true value-for-money to our customers, and we consistently look for opportunities to bring Namibian talent to our audiences, by providing platforms that continue to support storytelling,” said MultiChoice Namibia MD, Roger Gertze.

New productions, returning series and more

Speaking on MultiChoice Group’s hyper-local strategy in obtaining countless hours of African content, Yolisa Phahle CEO of General Entertainment and Connected Video, said, ‘’It is because of our customers that we can continue to focus our energy on growing the local industry and bringing content which is authentically yours. Relevant, local and above all, entertaining and informative.”

On the local African front, viewers can look forward to South African funny-man, Loyiso Gola’s Stand-up special called State of the Nation during April, an Africa Day pop-up channel featuring films and general entertainment from all over the continent in May, and the return of fan favourite, Survivor SA in June.

On the international front, viewers will continue to be spoiled for choice as they can expect more blockbuster hits as well as riveting series returns.

Highly acclaimed series such as The Flight Attendant, featuring Kaley Cuoco, Birds of Prey, and titles skipping the theatres and making their way straight to you can be expected in the upcoming months as international titles continue to keep viewers glued to their screens and devices. On the series side, Issa Rae and the rest of her girlfriends return for the final season of Insecure on 1Magic, whilst Queen Latifah reigns supreme on The Equalizer also on 1Magic. No matter what kind of content you fancy, DStv has got you this season!
