On Wednesday at 20:00 MultiChoice will launch a new channel, Zambezi Magic (DStv 160) on DStv for viewers in Southern Africa, outside of South Africa to give them access to South Africa's popular soaps.

Zambezi Magic will show SABC soaps ranging from SABC1's Generations and SABC3's Isidingo to SABC2's Muvhango among the curated content from the SABC's archives, as well as shows pulled from M-Net and Mzansi Magic's shelves.

Zambesi Magic, a channel run and managed by M-Net for MultiChoice's DStv, aims to become a showcase of "quality programming from the southern tip of Africa" and a catalyst for the production of new regionalised content from this region.

In an advert in today's local papers, MultiChoice said, "The wait is over. Experience the magic of the Zambezi. Its time to sit back and watch all your favourite 'award winning' soapies that celebrates Southern African life and culture.

Zambezi Magic will be available to DStv Premium, DStv Compact and DStv Compact Plus subscribers in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Malawi and Swaziland.

"Zambezi Magic will offer the most sought-after archive content that has so far not been available outside of South Africa," says Addiel Dzinoreva, the head of the Zambezi Magic channel.

"The channel will also build regional entertainment brands by showcasing entertainment productions from the various Southern African countries," says Addiel Dzinoreva.
