SABC1 Schedule Changes

The South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) TV Network have introduced an exciting revamped schedule.

Complete with brand new shows, new seasons of some of SABC viewers’ favourite programmes, slot changes and a list of spanking new personalities ready to thrill viewers with an enhanced television viewing experience.



The channel has introduced several changes to the weekday primetime schedule.


The local drama slot at 20:30 has been reduced to 24 minutes. We have acquired what we believe is an exciting offering to premiere in the Thursday 20:30 slot. Mfolozi Street Season 2, the series, starring Hlubi Mboya, Robert Mpisi, Luthuli Dlamini among others, promises to certainly raise a few industry standards in storytelling.Evoke_Warras


The channel has made a bold decision for the Friday entertainment primetime slot by acquiring a new 48-minute music entertainment show, Urban Music Xperience, hosted by Luthando “Lootlove” Shosha and Adil More, to be scheduled at 21:00, followed by Skyroom Live at 22:00. A revamped series of Live Amp, hosted by Pearl Thusi and DJ Warras, will now premiere on Friday at 19:30.

The 5th season of Fan Base at 18:00 will offer viewers an exciting revamp and a new versatile presenter in Akhumzi Jezile.


The weekend schedule will see changes in both daytime and primetime.


Saturday 09:00 will be the repeat of Urban Music Xperience

This means that Mzansi Insider, which has acquired a new co-presenter in Rorisang Thadekiso, then moves to 10:00, an hour later than it had been previously scheduled. This has a further impact on the Generations Legacy Omnibus, which will now start at 11:00.

Season 14 of Friends Like These at 18:00 provides our viewers with added fun with comedian, Trevor Gumbi, in the driving seat and the introduction of new and exciting games.



Evoke_Gospel_GoldSunday 09:00 will be Gospel Gold, presented by Thabiso Mokhethi and Sthembile Mhlongo, followed by Mzansi Insider at 10:00.

At 12:30 on Sunday, SABC1 introduces an uZalo Omnibus in line with audiences’ expectations. 

A 48-minute drama slot has been created on Sundays at 20:00. Titles acquired for this slot are Ngempela and Sokhulu & Partners.
