South African pay TV operator MultiChoice is to launch a 24-hour channel exclusively tasked with covering the murder trial of double-amputee Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius.
Although the trial judge has not yet ruled whether the filming of the trial will be permitted, the channel will cover additional information about the case.
The channel will launch on March 2, a day ahead of the trial. It will be produced by Combined Artistic Productions, which was responsible for a tribute channel to former president Nelson Mandela on MultiChoice’s DStv platform last year.
Pistorius has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, in a case that has gripped the country since Pistorius’s arrest.
