This May, DStv Compact is going to town to entertain. It’s a particularly great month for comedy fans, with 5 favourite funny series returning, 4 stand-up comedy specials a stand-up series, and the series finale of Superstore. And if you're just looking to relax and have fun, 2 new reality/game shows, I Can See Your Voice.
There’s so much for families to watch together. Older rock fans have a treat in store with a series of History channel (DStv channel 186) documentaries that will play every Saturday throughout May. You can sit down with the grandkids and crack out the vinyl after each show to bond over some great music. And if you want to get in tune with modern pop culture, Desus & Mero is really a who's who of culture in the US today, while new talk show Open Late specialises in music culture. And there are beautiful, educational documentary series like River Hunters and The Magic of The Wild for families to watch together. Plus, parents and grandparents can also enjoy the charming new live action series targeted older kids, Golden Oldies, which sees an American mom and her 2 kids move to the UK to live with her dad and his 3 kooky 70-something roommates.
Reality fans welcome back 2 batches of Housewives along with 90 Day Fiancé and My 600Lb Life favourites. Chef Bertus Basson has a new series, In Die Sop, spiritual medium series Dloz'lami is back, too. And we’ll see how 1 pair of newlyweds tries to get their 11 children to live together under 1 roof in The Blended Bunch, plus so much more! Meanwhile, the intriguing Murder In Amish Country and a second season of the New Zealand-based Forensics series will reward true crime fans.
