BBC First Closure in Africa

BBC Studios advises viewers that its premium drama channel BBC FIRST (DStv channel 119) will not be renewed when the current carriage agreement with Multichoice ends. From 1 September 2020, the channel will no longer be available on the DStv platform.

We would like to thank viewers for their support of BBC FIRST over the past five years and understand that subscribers will be disappointed to lose a dedicated channel for premium drama series with hundreds of new programming hours each year. BBC BRIT will continue to offer a selection of drama series as part of its programing mix and we are seeking new opportunities that will allow us to continue to bring drama fans even more of what they love.

We have operated BBC branded channels on the DStv platform for over 20 years and remain committed to bringing our viewers the very best programming from the BBC and leading UK production houses such as the new series of Top Gear, Strictly Come Dancing, and A Perfect Planet. Viewers who are concerned about changes in their channels line up should contact DStv directly.
