What To Expect On DSTV's New Channel; Sundance TV


AMC Networks International UK will launch Sundance TV in South Africa for the first time, on Multichoice’s DStv.


Sundance TV will launch on DStv in South Africa, exclusively to DStv Premium customers as a 24/7 linear HD channel. The channel will start broadcast on Thursday, June 1st 2017. 


“Sundance TV will offer a selection of award winning and locally appealing programming exclusively to audiences in South Africa,” said Louise Cottrell, VP, Affiliate Sales for AMCNI UK.

“We’re excited to launch this premium channel for the first time in South Africa on the DStv platform, which reinforces our long-standing partnership with MultiChoice, Africa’s leading video entertainment provider.”

“We’ve listened to what our customers are saying about our content, and are committed to bringing them more fresh content more often and fewer repeats. SundanceTV will bring great variety through its high quality art movies and unforgettable series. We’re confident our customers will welcome Sundance TV to the DStv family and into their homes,” commented Aletta Alberts, Head of Content for MultiChoice.

Some of the great Film Festival Selections which will premiere on the channel, includes the gripping documentary Cries from Syria, which bears witness to the resiliency of the people of Syria in the wake of their exposure to unthinkable crimes against humanity. I Smile Back is an unflinchingly authentic and humanising portrait of a suburban wife and mother dealing with depression and disillusionment that send her careening into a secret world of reckless compulsion.

The two series to be aired on Sundance TV channel 108 in June are;  

“The Son”
Premieres on 6 June at 21:00 CAT


Based on Philipp Meyer’s New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel, “The Son” is a sweeping saga spanning 150 years and three generations of the McCullough family. The series traces the story of Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan), the charismatic family patriarch. As a child, he was kidnapped and raised among the Comanche Native American tribe and applies the brutal Comanche worldview to his business dealings.

Produced by AMC Studios and Sonar Entertainment, “The Son” is written and executive produced by Meyer, Lee Shipman, Brian McGreevy and showrunner Kevin Murphy. “The Son” is distributed internationally by Sonar Entertainment.

“Fear the Walking Dead”
Catch-up of Seasons 1 & 2 from 5 June. Season 3 premiere on 24 July at 21:00 CAT


“Fear the Walking Dead” portrays the efforts of a highly dysfunctional blended family to stick together when they realise a reported virus is actually the onset of the undead apocalypse. The series is developed and produced by Robert Kirkman, creator of “The Walking Dead,” and Dave Erickson, known for “Sons of Anarchy.” The series’ main cast includes Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, The Blind Side, “Lost”), Cliff Curtis (Missing, The Dark Horse, Gang Related) along with upcoming actors Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey and Lorenzo James Henrie.

As the series returns for season three, our families will be brought together in the vibrant and violent ecotone of the U.S.-Mexico border.  International lines done away with following the world’s end, our characters must attempt to rebuild not only society, but family as well.
