DStv is helping to make family time a stimulating experience. Amid the pandemic and schools being closed until mid-February, families across South Africa are all at home at once, which can be tricky to navigate if you work full-time and have to help home school your kids. 

To lighten the load, DStv has a wide offering of channels that are educational and entertaining that will appeal to the entire family. 

It's easy to watch mindless cartoons en masse but I am a firm believer that the TV shows I grew up watching were far better than those that exist today. But then again nothing can compare to the Hanna-Barbera cartoons that were first created in the 40s.

Here is a list of family-friendly edutainment that DStv recommends:

  • Da Vinci (DStv 318)
  • National Geographic (DStv 181)
  • Nat Geo Wild (DStv 182) 
  • The History Channel (DStv 186)
