DStv to carry SA kids net Play Room
A new South African children’s channel called Play Room is set to debut on DStv Channel 300 on November 6.
Play Room aims to blend both education and entertainment, offering a selection of original South African and globally popular content, including animated shows translated into isiZulu.
Programming in the morning will emphasise educational content tailored for children aged 4-6, while programming in the afternoon will focus on live-action shows as well as a locally produced programme designed to entertain tweens.
Georginah Machiridza, executive head of general entertainment at MultiChoice Group, said: “We are constantly looking to give our customers the best entertainment and by increasing our content offering we’re providing more viewing options to them. From a local content perspective, we’re excited to expand on local representation in the form of content being dubbed into local languages.
“The launch of Play Room is an enhancement that we believe parents and children will have a strong affinity to.”
