South Africa's only dedicated TV motoring platform, IGNITION began broadcasting on DStv 412 in October 2008, with an initial 2 hours looping eight times per weekend. In July 2009, IGNITION moved to a new home on DStv 265, expanding its loop to 6 hours of content running from midnight on Friday to midnight on Sunday. We have just recently added an extra hour to offer viewers 7 hours of all motoring every weekend!
Apart from international programmes covering anything from drag racing to classic cars, bikes and our flagship magazine programme Auto Mundial, IGNITION also has its own homegrown motoring magazine programme, IGNITION GT. Hosted by Marius Roberts, this half hour weekly show offers petrol heads a good dose of what's new on the South African vehicle market. There's also our Buyer's Guide programme, offering viewers helpful advise on choosing their next new/used car.
