Sakha uMendo

Following their debut on the marriage rehabilitation show Forever Maybe, The Mngomezulus and the Letlalas return with their own reality series.

Hopeful and in love, the couples navigate through family, love and finances to rebuild their lives and marriages.

Following the emotional roller-coaster that was Forever Maybe, which documented couples managing marital crises, Sakha Umendo promises a deeper insight into the ongoing journeys of these interesting pairs.

The love between Anelisa and Skhumbuzo has been tested to its limits.

Now we will get a closer look at their current lives, which have completely changed from city glam to rural realities in KwaHluhluwe.

Unveiling narratives of mistrust, unresolved pasts and dreams of a new wedding, their journey addresses the concerns of co-dependency, familial interventions and financial dependencies.

Joy and Thabo have their plate full of new parenthood, financial tensions, and unresolved family feuds.

A secret pregnancy once pulled them apart, and now they must face the strain Thabo's distance from his son brings to their relationship.

As they attempt to bring their family closer, they'll confront financial independence and the challenges of being a nuclear family in a deeply interconnected societal fabric.

Amidst the myriad of challenges the Letlatlas dace, preparations for their wedding add another layer of complexity to their story.

As the days inch closer to their anticipated union, Joy grapples with the deep uncertainty, haunted by the vivid dream of her uncle cautioning her.

In this raw and unfiltered series, the lines between love and co-dependency blur.

Financial independence confronts marital expectations and nuclear families face the pressures and influences of extended relatives.

It's a story of two families seeking love, clarity, and, above all, a second chance at "forever maybe".

The looming questions remains: Will the couple overcome these hesitations and make their way down the aisle?

The Visitors

Genre: Paranormal, Documentary

The Visitors

In 1985, while spending Christmas at his family's cabin, New York Times best-selling author Whitley Strieber had a terrifying encounter with 'visitors' not of this world.

He went on to tell his harrowing tale of abduction, experimentation and mind control in the book Communion (and later the film starring Christopher Walken), which depicted the alien he encountered on the cover.

After Strieber's story swept the globe, he received hundreds of thousands of letters from readers who had similar encounters, convincing Strieber that we are not alone.

Little did Strieber know his journey into the unknown was far from over.

Over the decades, rare interviews under hypnosis detail how beings subjected him to disturbing experiments, recurring encounters and visions from beyond the grave.

Rare video shows a surgeon attempting to remove an alien device implanted behind Strieber's ear.

For the first time in nearly 40 years, Strieber agrees to return to the cabin and the stone circle that marks the spot of his first abduction, while investigative journalist Melissa Tittl and UFO researcher Jeff Belanger conduct a paranormal investigation.

Could this property still be a portal to an alien world, or is there something about Strieber himself that remains a beacon to the visitors?

Ultimately, Strieber and the team attempt to crack the mystery that still swirls today.

Why are these entities visiting us? Do they come with a warning? And what does this world have to do with the next?

Battle of the Fittest Couples

TX Time: 17h00
Genre: Reality Competition, Lifestyle

Battle of the Fittest Couples

Battle of the Fittest Couples takes ripped couples and puts them through an intense competition that not only tests them on their physical and mental toughness, but how they work together as a team.

Hosted by real life couple, former Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and former NFL Quarterback Jordan Rodgers, these two are no strangers to the competition world.

In Battle of the Fittest Couples, 12 of the toughest and most competitive couples battle their way through grueling, physical and mental main event challenges that will put every ounce of their athleticism to the test.

The losing couple is automatically put up for elimination and the winning couple gets to call the shots on choosing another couple to send with them into the "Rage Cage."

The ruthless rivals will then battle it out in a head-to-head brawl where one team will prevail and the other, sent home.

Through every episode, physical limits are pushed, alliances are made, and relationships are tested.

In the end only one couple will win $100,000 and be named "Fittest Couple."

Survivor 43

Channel: Me (DStv 115)
TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Reality Competition

Survivor 43

After 22 years on television, 646 castaways and 639 torch snuffs, Survivor returns for Season 43.

Survivor continues to evolve when these 18 new players are stranded on the beautiful islands of Fiji and must form a society and adapt to their physical and social surroundings, forcing players to choose between personal risk and reward, while navigating the complex social game and attempting to forge alliances to last another day.

These determined castaways require strong social skills, strategic acumen and physical endurance.

They will be divided into three tribes of six and face a faster, more extreme season from the moment they step on the beach.

The moral dilemmas and unpredictable situations will test even the strongest competitor, as food is scarce, rewards and supplies are minimal, and the mental and physical challenges require players to make impossible decisions and adjust their strategies every day.

The individuals competing on Season 43 are from diverse backgrounds and bring a fresh perspective to this new era of the game, with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast.

And in the end, only one will remain to claim the title of Sole Survivor and win the $1-million prize.

In the Season 43 premiere, "Livin": One winning tribe will earn supplies at the opening challenge while the remaining tribes must choose between a mental or physical challenge to earn their camp essentials.

Camp Courage

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00
Genre: Documentary

Camp Courage

In this documentary, a girl displaced by the war in Ukraine heads to a summer camp in the Alps with her grandmother, testing the limits of her bravery.

In 2022, a young Ukrainian girl named Milana traveled with her grandmother, Olga, to a week-long summer camp in the Austrian Alps.

It wasn't a typical camping trip, though — the pair were refugees of the Russia-Ukraine War, and the camp hosted other families affected by the long shadows of the conflict with Russia.

In its 31-minute run time, Milana and Olga push themselves to meet the camp's mountainous terrain with bravery and hope, and the film reaches an emotional peak when Milana is faced with the prospect of overcoming her fear and climbing the final summit.

Though the conflict in Ukraine looms large over Milana and Olga's experience, Camp Courage isn't about the war itself — instead, it's about the quiet resilience of the families who have to figure out how to rebuild in its midst and in its wake.

Million Dollar Listing New York 9

This season, the agents face the New York City market in an unprecedented way.

At the epicentre of the COVID-19 crisis and facing looming uncertainties, the city is completely flipped upside down.

The agents must work together to strategise their listings as city dwellers flee to more scenic locations and listing prices dramatically drop.

Despite the real estate crisis, the agents list the iconic New York landmark Ansonia building and work with high-end clientele - Ali Forney Foundation, Kelly Bensimon and a luxury fashion designer.

Ryan recently opened his own brokerage and finally became Serhant the CEO.

Banking on the opportunistic market, he seizes the chance to form new relationships with developers, while also juggling to spend time at home with his wife and daughter, Zena, and finalising construction on their dream home in Brooklyn.

Fredrik attempts to adjust to bi-coastal life but with stay-at-home orders in place, he must innovate to keep up with his New York City listings.

From afar, he faces the challenges of setting records in a discount climate and maintaining relationships with developers that question his understanding of the new market.

Steve faces the pandemic head-on in the city with his girlfriend and baby girl, while renovating a new penthouse for his family.

As the state of the city remains uncertain, he expands his territory and ventures Upstate where business is booming, with a little help from old friend Dorinda Medley.

Tyler continues to climb his way to the top of the real estate game and is determined to make a name for himself.

Unafraid of rivalry, he embraces a newfound confidence and forms a strong professional bond with Ryan while battling some of his other fellow agents.

Newcomer Kirsten Jordan is a powerhouse broker with a portfolio of over half a billion dollars in luxury properties.

Ready to make her mark and an athlete at heart, Kirsten approaches each of her listings like a competitive sport.

Married to a savvy Italian developer and fluent in the language, Kirsten adds a unique flair to the group with her specialty in the Italian clientele of New York City.

In the Season 9 premiere, "New Girl on the Block": The Big Apple brokers are back and eager to set real estate records.

Ryan lists a unique $18-million townhouse with commercial space.

Meanwhile, Tyler gears up to sell his biggest listing ever but must get creative after his bid for restaging falls through.

Down in Chinatown, Steve snags a listing but must work to attract attention for this hidden gem with no curb appeal.

Kirsten comes in hot as the new broker on the block, unafraid to battle it out with the other agents.
