A host of entertaining shows reflecting the realities of popular Namibian entertainment personalities have been bringing a local flavour to OATV while a hot new show will be making its debut in 2020.
Here is what viewers can look forward to in 2020:
Originally starting off as a vlog, ‘Planet Michaels’ follows the adventures of a multicultural family of four who document their travels, lifestyle, and adventures. The show is based on a variety of fun and exciting experiences that they get to experience as a family, giving viewers a glimpse into the life of Namibia’s most-followed vlogging family.

‘Family Affairs’ is a reality show capturing the drama, excitement, romance and celebrity world of well-known Namibian musicians, Matongo Family.
This TS Media Production brings to the screen the never before told story of Namibia’s most loved music trio. Initially starting as a way of documenting the trio’s reunion for the 2016 NAMAs, the show concept eventually gave way to a bigger
vision of doing something meaningful. On ‘Family Affairs’, the members of Matongo Family merge their love for music with the audiovisual storytelling medium. Watch ‘Family Affairs’ on Sundays at 18h00 with repeats on Mondays at 21h00, Tuesdays at 21h30 and Saturdays at 06h30.
‘Die Eintlike Vibe’
