Multi Choice Adds New Educational Channel, [ED]




I was going through TV channels the other day and happened to come across a new channel called ED on DSTV channel 318. It is an educational channel with some really interesting content. Content I love to watch especially about Africa. Channel ED offers DStv customers a portal to knowledge.

Most of the programs comprise of informative African content ranging from science, technology, trends, fashion and documentaries.
I watched a two  documentaries one titled 'Iron Ladies Of Liberia' and the other was about Mali transcripts'. They were both fascinating, educational and entertaining.

According to Multi Choice:

CHANNEL ED is Africa’s exciting and pioneering new knowledge portal where a dazzling combination of global high-end documentary television combines with hundreds of hours of brand new local and continental content bringing to viewers young and old a unique cutting-edge edu-explosion.
From physics to finance, from culture to chemistry, from the natural to the supernatural, CHANNEL ED brings together the learned and the learning so DStv customers get access to the world's leading minds in an interactive, vibrant arena of ideas, innovations and discovery. CHANNEL ED will broadcast to 49 countries throughout Africa, including South Africa.
Executive producer of Channel ED, Danie Ferreira,says: "Channel ED is about helping people across the African continent to expand their world with more knowledge, whilst also expanding the world's knowledge about Africa. It is only through sharing this knowledge that we will change perceptions of Africa for the better."
The channel will broadcast six hours of new content every week day, consisting of three hours of bought content, including documentaries and short form material, and three ED hours. ED hours are presenter-driven hours aimed at specific audiences: one block aimed at viewers between 25-49, one aimed at viewers 18-25 years old, and one at 15-18 year olds.
Another platform for Africa Rising. Promoting African content is worth supporting.
If you're looking for fresh programmes to broaden your knowledge, ED got you.
