StarSat has announced that Glow TV is now a part of its offering on the satellite
platform. It will be included in the StarSat Special Package on channel 570 from
Thursday, 14 January.
The Eastern-inspired channel brings programming in Hindi with sub-titles and in
English across various genres including food, comedy, travel, crime, drama, movies
and cartoons. The soaps in prime-time carry a dual soundtrack of Hindi or English
“Glow TV is an interesting addition to our platform and we believe many of our
subscribers will make it part of their regular viewing. Much of its programming line
has never been seen before in South Africa and the appeal of the channel is across
general, rather than specific audiences,’ says StarSat’s head of Content, Ian
“We’re excited that through this move, Glow will be more accessible to an even
wider audience. We have back-to-back soapies from 17h30 to 22h00 every weekday
and this month viewers can look forward to the brand new soapie,
Saras, which follows a young man who falls in love with the girl of his
dreams,’ says Glow TV channel manager, Naz Khan.
