MultiChoice has finally removed SABC Africa from its bouquets:
SABC Africa Terminates on Dstv – 31st July 2008
MultiChoice and the SABC regret to announce that from 1 August 2008, the SABC Africa channel will no longer be carried on the DStv service.
Operation of the SABC Africa channel is no longer viable and MultiChoice and the SABC have agreed that the channel be withdrawn from the DStv bouquet.
MultiChoice is currently in negotiation with the SABC on an alternative channel and content agreements and once these are concluded will be communicated with DStv subscribers.
MultiChoice and SABC regret any inconvenience to subscribers.
Sad thing since this was the only pan-African news channel on DSTV Africa before now. I hope they replace it with SABC International or CNBC Africa in the near future.
CNBC Africa is Africa’s 1st 24hour business and financial TV network and broadcasts from South Africa. It is currently restricted to South Africa on DSTV’s platform, and broadcasts free-to-air via Sentech Vivid’s platform, across Africa.
