(Joel Kinnaman stars in “The Informer”)

It’s the month of love – and there’s enough for everyone on DStv.

The Bachelorette SA sees M-Net’s first bachelorette, Qiniso van Damme from Port Elizabeth, embark on a journey to find her one true love. But she has an added challenge – she can't see who the candidates are as they write down their hopes and dreams on a piece of paper. Each week will give you an opportunity to follow the drama between Qiniso and her suitors as they battle it out to win her heart!

Based on the popular Swedish adventure books, Louis & Luca: Mission to the Moon will keep the entire family entertained. The story follows the two beloved characters from the Flakylpa village, Louis and Luca the Hedgehog, who are best friends and love solving mysteries together. When their friend Little Tim disappears, they decide to go on a daring trip to rescue him from an evil space villain known as Triton who is hiding in a mysterious pyramid on the moon. Their mission will lead them to solve new mysteries along the way.

For lovers of crime thrillers comes a movie with all the right twists. The Informer is based on a true story about an ex-convict working undercover. In order to infiltrate the maximum-security prison that holds the most dangerous mob leaders, Puff has to get himself imprisoned. Playing the part of Puff, Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad) drives this crime thriller that will leave you asking, When is early called late?

A Twist of Fate is an entertaining family drama that returns for a highly-anticipated fifth season. It focuses on sisters Pragya and Bulbul who are as different as chalk and cheese. Pragya is the good girl who dreams of becoming a fashion designer while Bulbul is the face of her mother’s marriage hall (in fact, everyone knows her as Sarla Arora ka beta) and loves taking selfies endlessly to give them to her boyfriend.

Online dating can be a tough world for singletons and Love Fraud looks at one of the dangers of getting cosy in cyberspace. Tracy has resigned herself to focusing on her career and enjoying the fruits of her labour. But that all starts to change when she discovers online dating. Since it’s highly unlikely that an office romance will take root for her, she decides to see what dating sites can offer.

Shipwrecks: When History Resurfaces

February 11 on History (DStv Channel 186) at 20h15

The oceans hide many secrets. Far, far away from the crowded cities at their surface, hundreds of sunken ships lay motionless on the ocean floor. Their sombre remains are sometimes discovered by fisherman or scientific expeditions years later, when their story is finally unveiled in all its splendour. But there are also tales of wrecks whose mystery has never been revealed. Some have been forgotten for years… This is the story of forty-four voyages and how they were forever marked by a single tragedy, the wrecks of the SS Frontenac (1945), the SS Fort-Coulonge (1849), the Titanic (1912), Empress of Ireland (1914), Gairsoppa (1916) and the Edmund Fitzgerald (1975).
