MultiChoice has launched a channel on DStv that will feature round-the-clock coverage of the legal proceedings, as well as exclusive documentaries, profiles and in-depth expert analysis.

This is a first for South Africa, following the likes of high-profile trials such as those of OJ Simpson and Michael Jackson in the US.

The channel will be available exclusively to DStv Premium, Extra and Compact customers.

Pistorius’ criminal trial is scheduled to run in the Pretoria High Court from Monday, 3 March to Thursday, 20 March 2014.

The trial judge will decide whether any part of the trial will be broadcast live closer to the start date.
