| 12 June 2014, 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's channels division.

Among the programmes, will air music-based talk show The One to One Show on Sundays at 8pm and Behind the Gospel on Sundays at 8.30pm
