Ms Juicy on Little Women: Atlanta.
After almost 8 years, A+E Networks Africa is closing its Lifetime Africa channel (DStv 131) on DStv at the end of May.
“A+E Networks Africa is closing its Lifetime Africa channel, on both linear and non-linear platforms on 31 May 2022,” reads a press statement.
“This follows the closure of Lifetime in Great Britain, Ireland and Malta and will coincide with the shutdown of the channel in Poland.”
A+E Networks UK launched Lifetime in July 2014 in South Africa and across other countries in sub-Saharan Africa as a female-centric brand in its stable of TV channels.
The channel provided a mix of drama series, made-for-TV movies, reality shows such as the Little Women franchise and factual entertainment programming. It produced some localised series like two seasons of Married at First Sight SA, Love at Second Swipe and Four Weddings South Africa.
“We are proud to have brought audiences local shows such as Married At First Sight, Love At Second Swipe and Four Weddings South Africa. We have been delighted to have worked with local celebrities like AKA and Pabi Moloi,” continued the statement.
“We thank our viewers and clients for their invaluable support over the years. A+E Networks Africa’s History channel is still available on DStv, and Crime + Investigation Play will remain active in the region.”
