We have implemented the latest Video on the Web technology on this website, using the native OGG/Theora video support instead of the proprietary plugin Flash. Using Firefox or Opera will give you better Web browsing experience (no need to download a plugin) and better system performance (native support and optimized video compression). Plus OGG Theora is open. Since the other Web browsers don't support the evolution of the WEB, make the Revolution happen : switch now!
ON MONDAY 8 APRIL @09:30. WE WATCH THE DEMOLITION OF THE BASTION OF THE DEAF IN CAPE TOWN. STAY TUNED TO SEE WHAT THE NEW BUILDING LOOKS LIKE AND WHAT IS IN STORE FOR THE NEW PLACE.
Many people are fascinated with SL and they should because it is a beautiful language.
Dtv has a new slot where we teach Sign Language, so if you have been practising, make sure you don't miss the lessons.
We welcome comments, criticism and encouragements which will help us to bring you better programmes.

Ster Kinekor is showing subtitled movies for the hearing-impaired. This project is in a pilot phase and the cinema wants to assess the demand and feasibility of showing subtitled movies.
Please go along and support this initiative!
Ster-Kinekor cinemas will be releasing films for the hearing impaired at selected cinemas from 30 January, launching with the romantic drama Love & Other Drugs, which stars starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway.
The films are all subtitled and screened at dedicated times at Ster-Kinekor cinemas in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, and Pretoria.
DTV IS BROADCAST ON MONDAYS AT 09:30 REPEATED ON SATURDAYS AT 10:00. FOR THOSE WHO WORK NIGHT SHIFT OR CANNOT SLEEP, THEY CAN WATCH AT 24:30- 1AM.
SLED has developed a South African Sign Language (SASL) dictionary that covers basic vocabulary including, but not limited to, food, places, household objects, people, emotions, questions and time. The book and accompanying DVD have been designed not only as a reference for SASL vocabulary, but also to give a sound introduction to the grammar of the language.
Multilingual pamphlets containing valuable information on SASL and the Deaf were created by the Western Cape's Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport's Language Services Unit.
This was done in an effort to assist the implementation of the Western Cape Language Policy.
There is cricket on this weekend and as such, there will be no Dtv on Sunday 17 October. Regular programming will resume after that so check your TV Guide for details!
Every year, Dtv hosts the Zwakala Drama & Poetry Competition.
Our guest judges watch each performance and pick the top 3 entries from each category to perform again at the final gala evening.
This year, the gala evening promises to be a glamorous and fun-filled event.
