With DStv content nominated for over 120 Emmy Awards, one is almost guaranteed to find a show or movie that will fit any mood. On Wednesday, 26 August, catch Sandra Oh in the premiere of Killing Eve on Fox, DStv Channel 125, at 20:45. The show has been nominated for four awards, including Outstanding Drama Series.

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will be unlike any other in the show’s decades-long history. While plans have been made for a traditional ceremony, complete with a red carpet, it’s more than likely the event will take place virtually when 20 September (airing in SA on 21 September) comes around.

While we look forward to finding out the winners, here are other highlights on DStv from 21 to 27 August:
