MultiChoice is set to boost its music and audio offering this September with the launch of a brand new music channel and the addition of two new radio stations.
TRACE Africa is set to hit DStv screens on 1 September 2016, as a localised music channel thatll offer DStv customers exclusive music videos and documentaries from established and emerging Southern African artists. The channel will serve as the premier destination for Southern African music lovers, featuring the best contemporary hits from Kwaito, House, Coupι-Dιcalι, Afro-pop, Rumba to Ndombolo.
TRACE Africa (DStv channel 326) will sit along TRACE Urban (DStv channel 325) and replace TRACE Sport Stars (currently on DStv channel 188), which will no longer air on DStv from 30 August 2016. TRACE Africa will be available to DStv Premium, Extra, Compact and Family customers in South Africa.
The new radio stations being added to the DStv audio package are Channel 7 FM (DStv channel 825), a Namibian-based non-denominational Christian community radio station which will launch on 1 September 2016 and Radio Islam (DStv channel 826), an Islamic cultural, award-winning community radio station which will launch on 15 September 2016. The two radio stations will be available to DStv Premium, Extra, Compact, Family, Access and EasyView customers in South Africa.
