OpenView Launches Two Music Channels Without Notice

At this point, both e.tv and OpenView are killing themselves with these last minute announcements and failure to engage with the media. Don't know who told them it was the brightest idea to leave the media out in the cold.

Recently, viewers noticed that there's two music channels onboard which are SA Hits and Soul Playlist.

SA Hits (Channel 135) will feature house music and possibly several other genres from Euphonik, DJ Zinhle, Mahoota, Master KG and more.

Soul Playlist (Channel 136) will feature other genres on top of Jazz with artists ranging from Jamie Callum, Nina Simone, Diana Krall, Billie Holiday and many more.

Both will launch as a pop-up channel on Friday, 4 December. You notice how they don't mention an end date so perhaps they're working towards having it full-time. Expect them to be more repetitive than the ones on DStv and local based as mentioned above.


This festive season, Openview turns up the volume with two new pop-up music video channels, premiering on Friday, 4 December.

SA Hits will have its home on channel 135 of the Openview Free-To-Air satellite platform. The channel will be a dedicated and dance-inducing mash-up of proudly South African music, the latest in social media culture, local fashion, together with local destinations and brands.

You can expect local mega hits from musicians such as one part of KZN's Finest DJ Tira, Heavy K, Busiswa, Black Coffee, DJ Zinhle, and Euphonik.

Experience nostalgic trips down memory lane with hits from yesteryear by Oskido, Trompies, and Mahoota.

Openview Channel 136, Soul Playlist, is where you head for a dose of relaxation, courtesy of soothing video hits from Mzansi and the world's most renowned RnB, Jazz, and Soul maestros.

Sit back and unwind with Nina Simone, Jamie Cullum, Diana Krall, Billie Holiday, and Ella Jane Fitzgerald.

The Free-To-Air satellite platform has officially surpassed 2.2m household activations, with a steady increase promising to propel Openview to greater heights.

Openview MD, Mmatshipi Matebane is delighted at the premiere of the SA Hits and Soul Playlist pop-up channels, "Our efforts to provide our fans with festive cheer through music are proving to be fruitful. We look forward to families bonding over song, as either one of the Openview channels lends itself to the makings of long-lasting memories. We want to thank all our Openview viewers for the continued love and support and wish them a safe and joyous holiday season," said Matebane.

Openview is South Africa's only free satellite TV service, with 18 TV channels and 9 radio stations.

There are no contracts and no monthly fees, pay once for dish and decoder and enjoy more TV for free, forever.
