There’s something for everyone with this week’s wide variety of entertainment – only on DStv.

Here are some of the highlights:

Charlie’s Angels (Action Comedy)

Sunday, January 31 on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) at 20h05

A reboot of the 1970s series and 2000s films, this updated version follows four women who investigate and take down terrorist threats. When a young engineer blows the whistle on a dangerous technology, the Angels are called to action. Starring Kristen Stewart, Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks and Ella Balinski, this remake features a soundtrack by Sia and action scenes directed by Banks herself.


Outlander S5

Starts Saturday, January 30 on M-Net City (DStv Channel 115) at 21h40

The season starts with a wedding and flashback to Jamie and Claire’s (Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, respectively) wedding. But the peace won’t last, and not just because the American Revolutionary War is around the corner and Jamie and Claire are both battling with divided loyalties. Claire’s medical practice, including her desperate struggle to find a reliable way of manufacturing penicillin, will set her up for a horrific confrontation in the season finale when someone believes that what she is doing is in defiance of God’s will.


Walker S1

Tuesday, February 2 on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) at 19h30

This brand-new series is a reboot of the Chuck Norris action series Walker, Texas Ranger, with Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki in the lead role of the grief-stricken widowed Texas Ranger Cordell Walker. Look out for Jared’s real-life wife, Genevieve, as Cordell’s murdered wife Emily, who is a ghostly presence as Walker becomes obsessed with working out how and why she really died. Walker isn’t a “spinning kick to the face first, ask questions later” kind of guy this time round, but he still has his own moral compass.


For Life S2B

Tuesday, February 2 on 1Magic (DStv Channel 103) at 20h30

The drama about Aaron Wallace, a man who studied to become a lawyer while he was behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, is back from production break with episode 6, in which COVID-19 strikes Bellmore Prison. Aaron returns to the prison to see how he can help, while Marie must choose between potentially exposing her family to COVID-19 or leaving her hospital job.


Blindspot S5

Wednesday, February 3 on M-Net City (DStv Channel 115) at 19h10

Last season, Madeline framed the team as the suspects in a far-reaching corruption case. As the new season begins, she uses her influence to create a civilian oversight committee – a team that polices the FBI. With her place in the organisation fully cemented, she wiggles her way into the position of Director of Federal Law Enforcement. And as the big, big boss, she turns up the heat on the team and goes to extreme measures, including banding together with terrorists, to get them out of her hair for good.


The Victim S1

Starts Thursday, February 4 on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) at 21h30

A tasty British crime thriller! In this four-episode series set in Scotland, grieving mom Anna (Kelly Macdonald) is on trial for inciting violence when she posts online that a local bus driver is really the man who murdered her child and now living under an assumed identity. The bus driver’s lawyer has his own axe to grind, having been falsely accused of a crime himself. The series digs into what happens when people have had their trial, but feel that justice has not been served.
