From sharing a channel with CGTN – and 700 other programmes – StarSat has been an amazing programming bouquet for Jit Television

The Sunday Express

After over 130 daily news bulletins – and six months of programming – Jit Television is set to move to a bigger platform this month – details of which you are hearing here on The Sunday Express newspaper for the first time.

In October we reported that the station had moved house from Randburg to Rivonia – Telemedia Studios – and the news division had stayed the course with innovative news bulletins which showed the other side of the Zim-SA news corridor like never before.

So we completed the internship that was StarSat this week  –  and by the end of this month – Sunday Express and Jit Television will be the first Zimbabwean broadcaster that is going to run a complete Zimbabwean station on one of the influential multiple networks on digital satellite television on the continent. Mark our words, its a true story.

And it’s all the tireless efforts of forerunner: the leadership of Colin Mackenzie – who run a tight ship from the inception in Randburg – and will stand proud this week as his own personal dream had become not his alone – but a whole team of new-age broadcasters and engineering crew that seeks to change the way that television is broadcast on the continent.



StarSat has been a revelation. From rubbing shoulders on the same channel with CGTN – and 700 other programmes – StarSat has been an amazing programming bouquet for the Jit Television offering – and in that thicket of 13 programmes – stands the 30 Sunday Express, 110 The Daily News Bulletins – and all anchored on the digital print with this very newspaper: – The Digital Sunday Express.

So as we migrate, you won’t remain behind – and this falls perfectly in the new subscriber-driven model that we follow as a newspaper – one that seeks to empower the viewer and subscriber – and build allegiance with the brand.

Telemedia has taught us the power of the engineering fleet at the disposal of Jit TV – covering over 93% of the world’s population across the Americas, Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, CIS and Russia

Jit Television is proving to the channel of choice on StarSat – our entertainment, music, gospel, sitcoms and reality shows – as well as the news and information – are drawing in the numbers – and the station is not looking back.
