A lot can happen in 30- years! We experienced many “firsts” and launched many iconic moments in television. We could easily say being awarded the first Pay TV license in Africa in ’85 was our favourite moment. It is what has brought us here after all. But in the three decades since that award was given to us in 1985, we have pioneered when it comes to entertainment television.

It is difficult to pick just one, so we decided to take you back to the words we loved to hear…reminding us how we have kept the magic for 30 years:

  • “Your Best Friend”
  • “Own The Silver Screen”
  • “We Won’t Stop The Magic”
  • “We Call It Magic”
  • “Where Magic Lives”

All these have brought us to our 30th birthday celebration. Being the special occasion it was, we had three magical gala nights filled with good food, great company with our invited guests, and amazing musical performances to keep us in the party mood.

We did not want you, our loyal subscribers to miss out on any of the birthday celebrations. Every moment was captured for your special viewing.
