Fate: The Winx Saga

A young adult drama series inspired by the Nickelodeon animated series Winx Club.

Determined to master their enchanting powers, a group of teens go through rivalry, romance and supernatural studies at Alfea, a magical boarding school.

The series follows the coming-of-age journey of five fairies attending Alfea, a magical boarding school in the Otherworld where they must learn to master their powers while navigating love, rivalries and the monsters that threaten their very existence.

TX Time: 17h30
Genre: Reality Competition, Food, Afrikaans


Reality cooking competition hosted by actor Neels van Jaarsveld in which each week two teams compete against each other to prepare a delicious dish.

But there's a catch: the three members of each team take turns in the kitchen, and when they tag the next person, they have to guess what the previous one planned, leaving clues for the remaining team member, who has to finish the dish.

And even when a good outcome seems certain, things can still go wrong.

At the end, a panel of judges tastes the meals and picks a winner.

Blown Away 2

Ten glass artists from around the world gather in North America's largest hot shop to push themselves to creative extremes in the quest to be named Best In Glass.

At stake is a life changing prize that will send their careers to new heights.

Back as host for the second season is YouTube science influencer Nickpedia and former America's Got Talent contestant, Nick Uhas.

Glass master Katherine Gray also returns for Season 2 as the show's resident glass evaluator.

The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY, is a partner of the series, offering the Blown Away winner a grand prize of an artist's residency at their museum following the competition.

The museum is also hosting an exhibit featuring 10 works created on the show, one by each contestant.
