48 Box Sets are wrapped with a bow on DStv this May

Love that show but got lost along the way? With DStv’s Box Sets, you can binge whole seasons of shows like The Bachelorette SA, The Flight Attendant, Pastors’ Wives, Zodwa Wabantu: Uncensored, The Watch and more, this May

The start of May is the start of long nights in South Africa. All the more time to enjoy your TV. It’s time to snuggle down, grab a beverage, and crack open a Box Set full of fun, fantasy, scandal, intrigue and action. With full seasons of about 58 shows going live this April, you’ll be the one handing out the roses to pick your perfect match.

DStv’s Box Sets let you binge your favourite shows in your own time, hold viewing marathons, replay favourite scenes, and go back to check out clues – however you want to watch, that remote control is in your hands.

May’s big Box Sets include the darkly funny Kaley Cuoco thriller The Flight Attendant. The series foreshadowed some major revelations that happen in the finale in early episodes, so it’s worth coming back to see if you can spot the clues. Local reality series Pastors’ Wives has been a deliciously scandalous affair that just got more jaw dropping with each episode – and the saga has continued in real life on social media, too, with pastors actually getting fired over what people have seen on screen. Zodwa Wabantu’s second season of her reality series rubbed shoulders with fellow celeb series Her Majesty: Busiswa and Moonchild Sanelly WOZA, so you might have missed out. If you did, give her a little love and find out why she doesn’t have any chairs downstairs in her mansion. The Terry Pratchett series The Watch, which also slipped by under the radar on M-Net, is here in 1 piece. And if you’ve been counting down the episodes, the grand finale of The Bachelorette SA S1 airs on Thursday, 6 May on M-Net (DStv channel 101) at 19:30 and the series will be available to binge as a Box Set from Thursday, 27 May.

Chase away the winter blues by the light of a DStv Box Set. It’s sizzling hot TV!

The Flight Attendant S1

The answer to that riddle involves some shady big business deals. Based on the 2018 novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian.

The Watch S1

This series is inspired by fantasy author Sir Terry Pratchett’s Guards characters in the Discworld novels (1983-2015). A motley crew of cross-species guardsmen (including dwarves and werewolves) led by the grumpy and down-at-heel Sam Vimes (Richard Dormer) rise out of apathy to restore law and order to Ankh-Morpork, pushing back against lawless politicians, shadowy guilds, the super rich, and street gangs. But an old enemy of Vimes’s named Carcer Dun (Sam Adewunmi) is dogging their every step while trying to get his hands on a magical artefact.
