We all have something we love to watch on television and pay TV subscribers will tell you so. They pay that monthly subscription with an intention to watch specific content off the platform. This ranges from sports, news, documentaries, soap operas, among others. Multichoice has announced that some of its DStv channels will no longer be available after October 2019.
DStv is going to do away with the History, Crime + Investigation and Lifetime channels from its platform on 1 November. Reason: the contract between DStv and A&E Television Networks, the American company which owns the channels, has expired the channels have to be removed.
DStv issued a statement saying that the current contract expires on 1 November 2019.
“MultiChoice Group will be saying goodbye to the History, Crime + Investigation and Lifetime channels on its DStv platform at the end of the current contract term. Viewers will however be able to continue enjoying some of the firm favourites such as the Housewives franchise that’s already available on 1 Magic.”
Multichoice plans to introduce two new channels which will show programs that have the same feel to those you currently watch on History, Crime + Investigation and Lifetime channels. The pay TV will soon be announcing the introduction of two new channels to DStv.
“The first is an established global brand and the other, a new innovative brand. Both channels will bring exciting new titles and genres that viewers will really enjoy, including among others blue chip documentaries, history and factual reality shows. In addition, we continue to increase our significant investment in local shows and content, which have great resonance with customers and are a key driver of engagement.”
