(Above: Trevor Noah presents classic stand-up specials each Sunday)

New seasons and episodes airing this week, February 4 -10, 2022.

This week on DStv, it’s all about letting South Africa show you how!

Want to know how a perfect hostess gets people talking? Marinda Engelbrecht is back in the kitchen with the warmly nostalgic talk and cooking show Stoofstories Met Marinda.

Best friends Alvin Bruinders and Gerhard Steyn will show you the best places to stop for a roadside snack in an all-new season of Konings Van Kitskos.

Come Dine with Me South Africa is back as promised, with the funniest, nosiest insights into how to host a dinner party to make the neighbours jealous.

Learn how to throw a grand wedding with just one day of planning with the team from Eendag, who are here with a new season, too.

If your local history lessons have you feeling down, let the master of comedy Trevor Noah show you how to turn tragedy into laughter with four stand-up comedy specials, every Sunday in February on Me (DStv Channel 115).

And if you can’t stand the heat, Thuso Motaung will teach you everything you need to know about resolving romantic relationship conflicts in a brand-new season of Lenyalo Lethata.

There’s also plenty of excitement on the international front, with British-American co-production crime thriller series Ragdoll. Compare that to the grisly real-life stories with the start of two brand-new true crime series: Michelle Carter: Love, Text & Death and Ken and Barbie Killers: The Lost Murder Tapes.
