Satellite provider adds more channels to its line-up

Spring has certainly sprung at StarSat, with the channel announcing a major shake-up of its channels and content going forward.

From today, viewers will be introduced to new channels available in the satellite TV provider's various packages.

The new channels are community station SOWETO TV, music channel Trace Africa, ST Naija, which celebrates the pop culture of Nigeria and Ghana, and ST KungFu Plus which aims to not only entertain with martial arts, but many facets of Chinese culture and tradition.
