OpenView HD launches Trial TV: The State vs Oscar Pistorius on Channel 119

South Africa’s first free-to-air digital satellite platform, OpenView HD, is launching a channel dedicated to broadcasting the Oscar Pistorius trial live on Monday, 3 March 2014.

Trial TV: The State vs Oscar Pistorius, which will run on OpenView HD Channel 119, will offer viewers live court proceedings from 10AM-4PM. Court proceedings will be repeated on the channel throughout the schedule.

Oscar Pistorius, also known as the blade runner, was accused of allegedly shooting and killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp on 14 February last year. Pistorius is due to stand trial in the Pretoria High Court on 3 March.

Says Maxwell Nonge, Managing Director of Platco Digital: “OpenView HD is pleased to be able to broadcast the Oscar Pistorius trial live on our platform. The decision to provide our viewers access to information of public interest is in line with our commitment to afford OpenView HD viewers with as broad a range of programing as we have at our disposal.”

Monde Twala, Head of Channels says: “There has been a lot of interest around the Oscar Pistorius case amongst our viewers, therefore, we would like to afford our viewers the opportunity to witness and follow the trial of Oscar Pistorius as it happens.”

Viewers can also tune into Prime Time and eNCA on DStv Channel 403 for more riveting coverage of the court proceedings.
