DStv will broadcast the 70th Miss Universe pageant in which Miss SA Lalela Mswane is participating live on Monday morning from the Universe Arena in Eilat.

The annual beauty pageant has been marred with controversy since it was announced that this year's competition would be hosted in Israel.

Despite the South African government withdrawing its support, the 24-year-old will compete and participate in several activities, interviews and preliminary rounds leading up to the coronation night, including fittings, rehearsals, orientation and the national costume show. 

The three-hour show will air on Monday morning, 13 December at 02:00 on 1Magic (DStv 103) with a primetime repeat on Monday at 22:00 on the same channel.

The 70th Miss Universe pageant will get another repeat airing on M-Net's Me (DStv 115) on Sunday 19 December at 20:00, making the broadcast available to more lower-tiered DStv subscribers.
