ABOUT

Launched on Monday 3 September, 2018 by Discovery, Inc. as a way to expand and diversify their local content offering, Real Time was designed "to provide 'me time' to the modern African woman and her wider family", according to the network.

The channel features a curated schedule revolving around a mixture of themed lifestyle and factual content. At launch, the channel was broken down as follows, with examples of shows in each category:

Real Lives

Our Little Family

Parents Dan and Michelle are not raising the typical American family: the entire family of five has achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. Dan and Michelle use their own life experiences to help guide their kids to overcome physical obstacles and learn to adapt to the world around them.

Real Weddings

Married By Mom and Dad

In this new social experiment, men and women who have been unlucky in love have agreed to put their love lives and their future in the hands of the people who know them best: their parents.

Real Medical

My Extreme Excess Skin

In each episode of My Extreme Excess Skin we follow two people who have lost massive amounts of weight and are about to undergo a full body transformation through skin removal surgery.

Real Nature

Predators Up Close with Joel Lambert

This series reveals nature's apex predators as you've never seen them before. Using a new, unique and bespoke polycarbonate and aluminium ‘pod', the Predator team come face to face with lions, hyenas, polar bears and sharks – close enough to carry out a range of original scientific experiments, and to feel the true power (and terror) of the natural world's most effective killing machines.

Real Headlines

Is O.J. Innocent? The Missing Evidence

Is O.J. Simpson innocent in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman? In this six-episode series, investigators delve into one of history's most infamous unsolved cases, exploring an overlooked suspect and never-before-seen evidence.

Real Crime

People Magazine Investigates

People seeks to uncover the truth behind some of the country's most infamous characters and iconic stories of crime. These are extraordinary tales of ordinary people who were thrust into the national spotlight.

In addition to Real Time's linear offering, from launch, a selection of the channel's programming is also available to stream and download via the DStv Now platform.
