eMedia has revealed that a new Afrikaans channel will be added on its satellite broadcasting service, OpenView.
The added channel, ePlesier, will include all-day-long broadcasting of eTV’s variety of Afrikaans-dubbed Turkish telenovelas, including Gebroke Harte, Bittersoet, Stilleto Vendetta, Kurt & Shura, Die Put, and Vierspel Vuurspel.
The channel will be airing new episodes on weekdays and Omnibus repeats of the show on Saturdays for those who missed it during the week.
The new channel, ePlesier, will start broadcasting on OpenView on 18 April 2022 on channel 112.
The addition of ePlesier on the OpenView platform comes after the satellite broadcasting service cancelled eNews and Sports together with eRwind at the end of March. The broadcaster also added eXposed, a reality TV-focused channel that includes Viceland content.
The eXposed channel will include programmes like Chasing Famous, States of Undress, F**K That’s Delicious, Most Expensivest by 2 Chainz, and TMZ on TV.
The 19 TV channels that are available on OpenView currently are: SABC 1; SABC 2; SABC 3; E.tv; eExtra; eMovies; eMovies Extra; eReality; eXposed; Star Life; Zee One; People’s Weather; France24; DBETV; SABC Sport; eToonz and Mindset.
