Considered one of the world’s leading destinations for scripted and unscripted entertainment, FOX Life – which launches today – is tailored for Africa and is available on DStv channel 126 and GOtv channel 20.
As part of the new channel, an additional 954 hours of fresh new programming will be added to the schedule over the coming months, focusing on localised storytelling, created specifically for African viewers.
Fox Life has the best of Hollywood in the form of ‘Pitch’ and ‘Atlanta’, Turkish and Brazilian Telenovelas, scripted and unscripted local content, as well as dramas. Some of the lifestyle and drama shows are from across the African continent like ‘Maliposa’, a Zambian drama and ‘Wrath’ from Nigeria.
There is also an exciting show on young Nigerian-born DJ Cuppy (Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola), who goes on an ambitious tour of eight countries across Africa. In a male dominated field DJ Cuppy has made inroads and describes her sound as “Neo Afrobeats”!
“FOX Life is core to our global entertainment portfolio and its entry into this market signals FNG’S continued investment in Africa,” says Gary Alfonso, GM, Fox Networks Group Africa. “From hit U.S. programming, to 954 hours of brand new, locally developed and produced content, our new channel portfolio reflects the best in entertainment, factual and sports.”
The new channel is available to GOtv Plus and DStv Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, Family and Access customers. The channel also sits alongside an extensive FNG portfolio of channels in Africa, which includes FOX, National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild.
