Official DStv’s new channels: broadcast dates, packages, more
We(gistping.com team gladly inform you about DStv’s new channels: broadcast dates, packages, more
TVSA has a confirm from MultiChoice on the details of the new DStv channels we told you about in our TV News Shorts.
As we mentioned, five channels are on the way to DStv, but their finer details weren’t confirmed, specifically their pop-up status and the packages they’ll be on.
They’re all new but they aren’t necessarily permanent. Four of them are pop-ups and MultiChoice tells us that their future depends on how well they perform, meaning their broadcast window is a test and the channels need to engage audiences if they’re going to last.
We presume this means they need to keep offering new shows instead of rehashing re-runs, side-eye to Eva which has devolved into a massive r<<wind button – there’s only one new show airing from mid-September.
And we use the term new like a second-hand shop because it’s the two-year-old Bold and the Beautiful and that’s it.
It’s a similar situation with FOX Life who are running off their telenovelas in three-and-two-for-one specials, turning the schedule into a train wreck.
We suspect this turn of events could mean the end of both channels, as suggested by blogger and TVSA reader Insidus, because two of the upcomings are telenovela channels.
Here’s a look at the five:
