Zambezi Magic switches to a new magical number on DStv channel 162


As part of its hyper-local focus and ongoing commitment towards bringing the best in locally-produced content to audiences in Southern Africa, Zambezi Magic will move to DStv channel 162 on Monday, 1 April 2019.  The switch to a new channel number will make Zambezi Magic available to a wider footprint across Southern Africa to enable audiences from the Fish River in the south to the great Zambezi in the north to enjoy the best mix of locally produced content.

This move comes just in time for viewers to enjoy the slate of new and returning shows ranging from comedy, telenovelas, reality and everything in-between. The drama never ends on Zambezi Magic: the hit telenovela Zuba continues to enthrall fans in Season 2, whilst the perils of plural marriage reach fever pitch after Nguzu’s sixth wedding in Mpali. Thabo and his college friends are confronted by unforeseen circumstances that will keep viewers intrigued inPages, not to mention the trials and tribulations of the ongoing family feud over inheritance in Season 4 of Third Will

The countdown to the  highly anticipated season of Our Perfect Wedding Zimbabwe has officially begun – the show features an engaged couple gearing up for their big day and will premiere on 18 April at 21:30.  Weekends at leisure involve Zathu Season 2, a lifestyle show that provides deep insight into modern and traditional aspects of culture, food and entertainment.  And for those in need of light relief, Season 3 of Security Guard continues to have audiences in stitches in the sitcom based around the Tizadyanabo security firm. 

Since the birth of the channel in 2015, Zambezi Magic has grown from strength to strength by working with local producers to share Southern Africa’s stories in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, Malawi and Swaziland.
