South Africans love home makeover shows and now there’s a new channel for you to binge on.
HGTV – the number one non-news network on cable television in the US – launched on DStv channel 177 earlier this month.
The channel focuses on home improvements that are within reach of the average viewer.
Shows feature on-screen experts, fascinating families, compelling renovations and stunning transformations.
The channel will include inspirational programming especially geared towards viewers who enjoy seeing dilapidated dumps transform into stylish and enviable homes, tiny homes become miniature paradises and are interested in learning how to bargain hunt for dream homes.
