 Cape Town TV is available free-to-air in Cape Town and across South Africa and Lesotho on DStv. The channel receives around three million views each month.


Tune in to Cape Town

One of the two frequencies that CTV broadcasts on in Cape Town is to be switched off from 1 March 2016.

If you live in Cape Town and don't see CTV on your TV set after 1 March, you must re-tune your TV set in order to pick up the frequency.

To re-tune the TV set, use the remote control unit to open up the Menu of the set.

  1. Go to the Setup menu.
  2. Do a channel scan – the TV set will automatically scan all of the channels it receives. This will take a few minutes.
  3. When the channel scan is completed the set should display all of the channels available – you will then be able to switch between channels using the channel buttons on the remote control or on the set itself.
  4. If you still have problems picking up the channel, call Sentech on 021 525 3601 for assistance.
  5. The technical details:
  • CTV has been broadcasting on two frequencies: channel 67 (839.25MHz) and channel 32 (559.25MHz).
  • Channel 67 is being switched off - so we will be broadcasting only on channel 32.
  • The transmission is from Sentech's Tygerberg mast, so your outdoor aerial should point to Tygerberg mountain.
If you are a DSTV subscriber, tune in to channel 263. You'll find it on the Easy View, Access, Family, Compact, Extra & Premium packages.
