Wild TV Africa will cover a variety of different outdoor pursuits that will entice mulitsporters and nature lovers alike. From mountain biking, adventuring and hiking for the more active, to camping and fishing shows for the wilderness lovers.
Wild TV Africa, which is launching on Friday 31 July on OpenView HD (Channel 153), promises exhilarating programming of world-class quality.
This adventure-based channel is the brainchild of TV entrepreneur Dewald Visser. Dewald is a small screen veteran who created series such as Hooked on Golf, Instink, Kom Braai and African BBQ Hunter. He owns Wild TV Africa media group and has more than 14 years of broadcasting experience.
Wild TV Africa guarantees to keep viewers glued to their screens with a thrilling entertainment line-up featuring a wide range of lifestyle genres and activities such as fishing, camping, mountain-biking, hiking, 4×4 trails, scuba diving, conservation, adventure, mountain climbing, hunting, sport shooting, sky diving, big wave surfing and ATV.
In addition to the Wild Travel series, the channel will also screen nine other locally produced weekly magazine and talk shows. The “Adventure Town of the Year” project will highlight smaller towns around the country that entice visitors with their variety of outdoor and adventure activities.
“Our key content focus is on providing family entertainment with shows about camping, braai and outdoor cooking as well as kiddie outdoor fun activities. South Africa is a mecca for outdoor pursuits with amazing weather and incredible natural beauty.
“This is not a sports channel, but rather a channel that focuses on content that makes you feel alive, while exploring the essence of Africa and its wide open spaces. Although some of the activities are not for the faint-hearted, it makes for great viewing,” explains Dewald Visser.
“We recognized the gap in the TV landscape presented by the Wild TV Africa team and were quite excited about partnering with the channel to provide for the demand.
“Through our channels offering we aim to bring viewing that will resonate with a wide variety of audiences. With the Wild TV Africa addition to OpenView HD, we look forward to attracting a new audience that makes up a great part of the South African active outdoor lifestyle enthusiasts.” Says Ziyanda Mngomezulu – head of channel acquisitions OpenView HD
