The River is not that good, I think it's just a plot to manipulate us into upgrading to premium

Interesting theory Goku.

I really felt for viewers who only have the SABC because their shows hardly won anything and yet the awards aired on the SABC.

It's like they turned out to be a free advert on SABC1 for DStv shows.
