The SABC has backed down on its decision to take off Days of our Lives from its TV scheduling. This is after fans of this series complained about the decision.
However, the fans will have to stay up till the wee hours of the morning to watch their favourite soapie. The soapie will be back on air from Monday 22 August at 23:30 and will continue where it ended in July.
According to Jared Orlin of TV Plus Magazine the South African sport fanatics will also have to stay up late to watch the 2016 Olympics on TV. The opening will be broadcast on SABC 2 at 00:50 Saturday morning.
This is not going to be an easy view for South Africans because of the time difference, say Orlin. Most games will take part way past our bedtime.
SuperSport will show almost everything while the free to air SABC channels will have limited coverage.
