Oscar Pistorius Trial: Dates, Times, TV Channel, Live Streaming

March 10, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

The Oscar Pistorius trial will resume today in several hours. It typically begins around 7:30 a.m. local time and runs into the middle of the afternoon.

The trial is already in its second week and it’s unclear how long it will proceed

The trial is being live streamed online and on several broadcasters in South Africa.

-Live streaming is available on the Internet through various international broadcasters such as WPTV.

-Live broadcasting is available on DStv on channel 199 on a dedicated Oscar Channel; on OpenView HD on channel 119, another dedicated channel; and throughout the day on the eNCA 24-hour television channel (DStv 403).

On the first two channels, the broadcast will air live and then re-air around the clock.

A South African judge ruled in February that broadcasting of the proceedings would be allowed through small, fixed broadcasts.

Live broadcasting of opening and closing arguments, expert testimony, and the judgement and sentencing comments made by the trial judge is allowed. 

Audio broadcasting of the entire trial–including witness testimony if the witnesses do not object–was also deemed appropriate.
