This channel features a range of artists including, Juanita du Plessis, Bobby Van Jaarsveld, Theuns Jordaan, Dozi, Nicholis Louw, Kurt Darren and more.

The Light is an upbeat, mid-tempo and joyful expression of a mix of both Pop and Rock modern gospel tracks, mostly contemporary, from the eighties through to current hits across the gospel charts. The channel features well known artists such as Casting Crowns, Britt Nicole, Tobymac, Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, Meredith Andrews, Josh Wilson and more.

Trots Afrikaans and The Light will replace Electrosphere (DStv channel 815) and New Age (DStv channel 836) respectively.

Talk radio enthusiasts can tune into Ubuntu Radio on DStv audio channel 888. Launched by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation of the Republic of South Africa (DIRCO) as an online radio station, Ubuntu Radio is the first of its kind on the African continent.

The station aims to create a platform for exchange of views and opinions by various stakeholders as well as tell African stories from an African perspective. It also aims to create a fair and balanced representation of the work of the department and government as a whole; and to clearly and consistently present the policies of the Government of South Africa.
