Take your shoes off though, sit back and relax. Forget you’re in the 07h15 Gautrain to work for a quick second. When I indulge in the occasional use of the German language, it’s usually to fire off Deutschland’s version of my favorite four-letter word (hint: it rhymes with sh-high-zuh!). Instead, I’d be rattling off this mouthful: ProSiebenSat.1 Welt. Gesundheit is right.
The German-language TV channel has big news for its SA-based fans: a subscription-based streaming service for the web and mobile (app). Interested parties that can, you know, understand German are welcome to test it free for a week before going all in on 6 months payment of 39.90€ (about R529 ZAR). It’s pretty much your best bet to catch up on the latest episodes of Der letzte Bulle, Ladykracher and Pastewka, one of which we assume has to be the German equivalent of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Don’t make that face. We’ve all watched it at one time or another. Oh, and Bitteschön.
