Hip TV, the urban music and lifestyle channel and fashion and beauty channel, Spice TV, have been added to the sub-Saharan satellite TV platform DStv.

Hip TV includes what DStv owner MultiChoice terms 'unusual content' that is 'a refreshing break from the norm' with shows such as Live It Up, Red Carpet, Star Stuck, Exclusive Interview, Dead Curious, I Thought You Knew and Caught Out There.

Spice TV offers comprehensive reviews of African and international fashion, with programmes including Spice Runway, Diary of a Muse, Spice Focus and Fashion 360.
"We are pleased to be launching two new home-grown channels Spice TV and Hip TV on DStv and we are certain that the launch of these two channels will provide subscribers with a greater variety of entertainment made in Africa for Africa," said Nico Meyer, CEO, MultiChoice Africa.
