What’s new on DStv Now in August 2019
Here’s everything to look forward to on DStv Now in the month of August. In this list, we have only included titles that will be available to DStv Premium subscribers watching DStv Now online or using the DStv Now app (Apple and Android).
Best of DStv in August
Pearson S1: So hot, it should be illegal (8 Aug)
The final season of Suit (S9) airs on M-Net, and Harvey and Samantha must fight to salvage the firm’s tarnished reputation in the wake of Robert Zane’s actions. The showrunners bring Mike back for a final hurrah. And luckily for us, fan favourite Jessica has received her own legal spin-off called Pearson S1 and it airs straight after Suits. Poised and infallible, Jessica Pearson has moved to Chicago (after being disbarred) where she starts her new job in the Mayor’s office. We’re really looking forward to another season of her incredible style and shark-like instincts.
Miss South Africa: Who is the fairest of them all? (9 Aug)
Some might complain that the format of the pagaent is dated, but Miss South Africa rakes in the views and tweets. This year has the most diverse group of finalists ever, including, for the first time, an openly queer contestant (finally), two plus-size women (who seem rather regular-sized to us, but hey) and another contestant with an unusual and beautiful birthmark across her face.
Live-stream Miss South Africa 2019 on DStv Now on 9 August, from 5pm onwards. It will also be available to catch up on later.
Catch-22: Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you (21 Aug)
The six-episode screen adaptation of Joseph Heller’s dark and satirical novel of the same name revolves around Yossarian, a bombardier during World War II who is baffled as to why complete strangers are trying to kill him. Also: every time he nears his final mission, the army increase the number of missions that need to be flown before he’s discharged. Catch-22 is starring and produced by George Clooney, with Christopher Abbott as Yossarian.
What else is on DStv Now in August?
DStv Now allows you to live-stream channels so you can tune into any live broadcast as it happens on the app or website. But there’s also a large catalogue of series, movies and documentaries in the Catch Up section that you can watch any time.
We’ve also indicated which series will eventually become boxsets on DStv Now and will remain on the platform for a while. So if you miss it, you’ll be able to watch the whole season later. Many other series on DStv Now only allow you to catch up, meaning that only the most recent few episodes are available.
