Welcome to the new look 790Tv

Rich & Poor

What better way to launch the “New Look” 790Tv with an image showing just how close the “haves” and “have nots” live in Hout Bay.

It can be said that Hout Bay is a true representation of current South Africa. We have every socio-economic class present in our country, living within a 2 kilometre radius of each other. We are experiencing the future of what this country holds, right here, right now!

If there is anything on your mind, a photo you would like to upload or an advert you would like displayed, then please feel free to email news@790tv.co.za .
