About the Show

V-Entertainment is a South African live entertainment magazine television series which was originally conceptualised as the flagship entertainment show of DStv's rebranded GO youth channel, Vuzu.

Presented by a variety of different presenters, V-Entertainment was Vuzu's flagship daily 30 minute live entertainment news show for nine seasons, before it was reinvented in 2017 and made exclusive to Vuzu Amp. It returned to Vuzu in February 2018 after Vuzu Amp was discontinued.

The show gives viewers an up-to-the-minute focus on local and international celebrities and covers lifestyle, fashion, news, the latest gossip, mobile videos, blogs, web clips and give-aways.

The series is produced by Don't Look Down Productions.
