Due to the science of time zone differences, American TV audiences get to see Trevor Noah officially hosting his first episode of The Daily Show today, while South Africans have to wait until tomorrow night to catch on. Here’s a round-up of where you can see it all happen.
If you have a DNS-scrambling service like Unotelly, which masks your geographical location, you should be able to see the episode soon after it airs at 5am South African time tomorrow morning at the Comedy Central site here. Alternatively, you can watch it via more legitimate means like so…
Comedy Central Africa will be broadcasting the show tomorrow at 9pm on DStv channel 122. The good news is that although the channel is usually only available on the Premium package, DStv will open the channel to Compact package viewers as well from tomorrow until the 2nd October.
The Daily Show will be broadcast four days a week on Comedy Central Africa and repeats of the show will be broadcast on the channel the next day after each episode airs.
Comedy Central Africa will also upload all episodes onto its website starting from this Wednesday, 30th September, so you can catch up on the show if you miss it the original airing and repeat on TV or once they discontinue access to Compact users.
Noah’s first celebrity guest will be fellow actor and comedian Kevin Hart.
Keep an eye on Twitter tomorrow morning if you want to find out how Noah is received by the US audience. We’ll be watching, bleary eyed, first thing.
