ABOUT

In 2007 e.tv formed a sister company, e.Sat TV. The following year e.Sat TV launched the eNews Channel, on 1 June, 2008, becoming South Africa's first 24-hour news service. Since then, it's dominated the market. Live reports, breaking news, sport, weather, entertainment, financial and business updates all form part of its offering, along with a host of topical current affairs shows.

In October 2009 eNews Africa was launched by e.Sat TV, which supplies news content to several e.tv Africa clients across the continent, as well as The Africa Channel, which is also on the Sky digital satellite platform in the UK.

In 2010 eNuus was launched, providing an Afrikaans language news service to kykNET viewers on DStv channel 111.

Between 2008 and 2012 eNCA was known as the eNews Channel, but was rebranded to eNews Channel Africa as the service increased its global reach and prepared to go online.

From 7pm on Sunday August 19th the eNews Channel became known as eNews Channel Africa or eNCA (pronounced E.N.C.A). The new look service also featured a redesign of its logo to incorporate the African continent into its brand identity.

The brand change coincided with the channel's launch into the United Kingdom, launching on the Sky digital satellite platform in the UK on channel 517. eNCA offers news services to affiliate networks across Africa, and to The Africa Channel, in the UK.

eNCA has bureaus across South Africa as well as in Lagos, Nairobi and Beijing. It also has correspondents covering Zimbabwe, Ghana and Tanzania.

eNCA also has a comprehensive multimedia news website staffed by a dedicated team of developers and editorial personnel, which harnesses the power of moving visuals, along with the accessibility and portability of web-based news.
