Comedian and presenter Schalk Bezuidenhout helps viewers to find VIA on DStv.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that sometimes the channel numbers on TV make no sense.
It seems there is no logical order to channel numbers on TV whatsoever. And with our demanding lives, to-do lists and all those numbers of your children’s friends’ parents to remember, those three arbitrary numbers on the remote just seem too much.
Schalk Bezuidenhout, presenter of Die Kliek, has filmed three hilarious promo videos for VIA to share this good news with the world. He says: “The filming was very fun. I was given a chance to play around and I think the product is very cool.”
VIA is the easiest channel to find on DStv and the channel number doesn’t take much memorising to stick in your head. The channel number is 147 and the buttons are right underneath one another on the remote. Your thumb will find the numbers automatically and you don’t even need to take your eyes off the TV screen.
As Schalk says in the video: “VIA is as easy to find as a Blue Bull in a beer tent, as your ex on Facebook or as Patricia Lewis in front of a fan.”
“People were laughing when we shot the video and that is all I want from life,” Schalk says.
