About

SABC3 is a commercial South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) television channel that carries programming in English and Afrikaans.

It was created in 1996, after the SABC restructured its television channels. It inherited many of its programs from TV1, South Africa's apartheid-era "white" channel.

SABC3 is targeted at South Africa's affluent English-speaking community; the channel's primary target market is viewers aged 18-49. It screens a combination of international programming from the United States and United Kingdom, as well as locally produced soap operas, talk shows and drama series.
