OpenView adds Beatlab.tv to free-to-air roster
| 12 June 2014
Beatlab.tv, a new music channel for South Africa, has been launched free-to-air on Platco Digital's OpenView HD satellite TV platform.
The urban youth music channel will broadcast from 6pm until 10pm every night, with its four-hour block of programming repeated from 10pm.
"Music is probably the biggest form of entertainment one can offer South Africa, so instead of having a few isolated shows, we have decided that our viewers deserve a full channel that caters to those who cannot live without a beat," says Monde Twala, group head of e.tv's channels division.
Among the programmes, Beatlab.tv will air music-based talk show The One to One Show on Sundays at 8pm and Behind the Gospel on Sundays at 8.30pm
