The digital era is in full swing and, with it, comes possibilities that were inconceivable a few years ago.

Through the respected and award-winning journalism of the Sunday Times, we have delivered content to South Africans for more than a century.
In more recent years, the TimesLIVE digital platform has met the needs of a tech-savvy marketplace and consumer, and in its relatively short life, has attracted millions of unique users who depend on TimesLIVE for their daily news.
“TimesLIVE is a descendant of the colossal Times family, led by the legendary Sunday Times, SA’s first family newspaper. Sunday Times has been a favourite among appointment readers for 117 years.
“We are migrating this tried-and-tested model to a digital platform, through TimesLIVE, to give you convenience and the best time of your content consumption life,” says Mzi Malunga, the group CEO of Arena Holdings Group.
“As you immerse yourself in the abundant, informative and entertaining content within the Arena, I implore you to sit back and enjoy our 24/7 content machine which will keep you captivated and longing for more.
“Please don’t enjoy this insightful and entertaining content alone: spread the word among friends and family, in the spirit of that famous African saying: ‘I am because we are’.”
