Love is in the air with DStv

Tune in this month for a lot to love on DStv

Love comes in all shapes and sizes and so do the shows we’ve hand-picked for you this February, whether you are young or young at heart, we all need a little love sometimes, and what says love more than curling up Infront of your Television?

During the month of love, DStv  viewers are spoiled with an array of programmes that show just what love means, from sisterhood to second chances and a love of all-things fashion.

In the words of Madea aka Tyler Perry: “love is a drug” and we’re high on DStv.
