Additional programming includes variety, lifestyle and music programs which showcase popular Afrikaans artists and their music videos across a wide variety of genres.

The channel also tunes in live to radio stations, with plans at launch to broadcast live music directly.

Programming at launch included Die Groot Ontbyt on weekday mornings, Jou Show met Emo, #MyMusiek, Singstories, Fiësta, digiTAAL, Republiek van Zoid Afrika, #LekkerTV, Jukebox, Bravo!, Sing in Harmonie, JAM and Leef jou Reis.
