Stimulating line-up on DStv’s brand new channels

Things are heating up on DStv’s latest additions, Discovery TLC and Discovery ID. Viewers can catch Outrageous Kid Parties and Couples Who Kill on the two channels respectively.

Outrageous Kid Parties is an entertaining behind-the-scenes look at the lives of the passionate parents who’ll stop at nothing, spending more than they can afford, to outdo other parents when throwing their children massive celebrations. Whether it’s a birthday party, a graduation or any milestone event, each week Outrageous Kid Parties follows mums and dads as they go beyond their means to give their child a huge, eye-popping, jaw-dropping soirée. With exceedingly high expectations, family members, friends and party planners are forced to go to extreme measures to ensure these awesome kids’ parties go down in history. Watch this series on Wednesdays at 21:00 CAT.

Serial killers are not a new phenomenon – but what happens in the mind of the average person when they fall under the spell of a sadistic predator? Forensic psychologists and criminal profilers uncover horrifying clues and reveal the true stories of people driven by love to commit murder. Couples Who Kill investigates some of the most terrifying crimes to explore their roots and examine the motivations of these deadly duos. Series four includes the case of a couple who conspired to murder a fortune teller; an abusive husband and his complicit lover, who brutalised his ex-wife and murdered her brother; and a teenage duo who committed the largest mass murder in Arizona history. The series airs on Tuesdays at 19:00 CAT.
