Platco Digital’s OpenView HD (OVHD) free-to-air satellite TV platform added a new music channel, Beatlab.tv on channel 500. Beatlab.tv went live at 18:00 on Friday evening and will broadcast from 18:00 until 22:00 every night with a four hour block of programming which gets repeated from 22:00.
Beatlab.tv is dedicated to South African urban youth culture genres, as well as music video mixes from across the world. Viewers are able to tune in for music from artists such as Dr Malinga and DJ Tira.
“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, the group head of e.tv’s channels division.
