Three Channels Are Rumored To Be Added On StarTimes Really Soon, Not Sure With Starsat

At the end of August, StarTimes lost Fashion TV, Fashion One, TDC (coming to DStv), FashionBOX, Gametoon and FilmBOX. Reasons for SPI International removal is still a mystery while the owners of Fashion TV and One decided to cut transmission for both Starsat and DStv. Now there's three channels are rumored to be added onto the StarTimes platform which is Comedy Central, TNT and Zoomoo.

Comedy Central is an American basic cable channel owned by ViacomCBS through its domestic network division's Entertainment & Youth Group unit, based in Manhattan. The channel is geared for mature audiences and carries comedy programming in the form of both original, licensed, and syndicated series, stand-up comedy specials, and feature films. The channel has made a huge impact in the African market especially through the DStv platform.

TNT, offers the best of contemporary and Hollywood blockbusters, with programming built on an action-driven, pulse-raising slate, mixed with romantic gems and hilarious comedy just as our African fans like it and offers programming that is relevant and interesting to African fans, with channel premieres of films such as Robin Hood, Jurassic Park and Pitch Perfect. TNT is a brand by WarnerMedia (Cartoon Network, CNN and Boomerang). The channel is currently available on DStv in South Africa and the the rest of Africa.

ZooMoo is a Canadian kids' channel that delivers a unique mix of live-action combined with animation and puppets - it's the world's first fully-interactive pre-school channel dedicated entirely to animals and nature, aimed at kids aged 2-7 years old. The channel is accompanied by a free ZooMoo App, which completes the multi-screen environment, synchronized on a real-time basis with the channel. The channel is available in other parts of Africa like Zuku TV for example. The channel is owned by Blue Ant Media (The Smithsonian Channel and Love Nature).

Comedy Central might be available later this month on StarTimes I doubt Starsat will get it since it's a cheaper version of the StarTimes platform (which costs just as much as DStv in those territories). TNT is said to launch on September 9th on StarTimes this is the first channel I can see on StarSat which to me is a replacement for FilmBOX and Zoomoo is still in the rumored category, for now it will launch as a pop-up channel from the 1st of October on DStv.

What You Might Expect On DStv's New Addition To The School Of Laughter, Zoomoo?

MultiChoice had a virtual showcase on August 19th and at that period they unveiled 5 new channels for their viewers including KIX which was overhyped for a while now then there's Zoomoo which is known as a pop-up kiddies channel.

These new channels were just sneak peeks as MultiChoice hasn't officially announced them through their outlets and these might not be only channels coming to the platform for the rest of the year as Wild Earth is launching tomorrow and that wasn't unveiled in the showcase.

As most people noticed most of the new channels added to DStv have been labelled as pop-up channels before becoming permanent channels for some reason particularly in South Africa and Lesotho like Da Vinci and AfricaNews, WWE Channel, PBS Kids and ESPN (discreetly before being snubbed).
Zoomoo (DStv 314) is a Canadian kids' channel that delivers a unique mix of live-action combined with animation and puppets - it's the world's first fully-interactive pre-school channel dedicated entirely to animals and nature, aimed at kids aged 2-7 years old. The channel is accompanied by a free ZooMoo App, which completes the multi-screen environment, synchronized on a real-time basis with the channel. It launches as a pop-up channel on DStv, which will be available from 1 October 2020 to 31 March 2021 presumably for South Africa and Lesotho.

Zoomoo is owned by Blue Ant Media that also supply StarTimes with Love Nature and The Smithsonian Channel it wouldn't be shocking if StarTimes or OpenView supplied Zoomoo soon. This kids channel launched earlier in the year in some parts of Africa through Zuku TV.
Zoomoo carries original content alongside acquired series which can be found on their YouTube channel and some streaming platforms.

Here's a list of confirmed programs for the channel so far:
- TEDDIES, stars four teddy bear friends- Dom, Meeks, Sparky and Tizzy- who live
in the wonderful world of Teddytown! Like kids, they’re learning what it’s like to grow up; making friends, being kind to others, helping out, making mistakes and respecting and appreciating others. Aimed at the pre-school market, this entertaining and endearing series also assists children in their development of social and emotional skills.
- THE HIVE, is a colourful animated series for kids all ages introducing life to early learners with the Bee Family. This series is about the everyday things that concern small children such as playing, being friendly, spending time with your family, getting along, and finding out all about the world and how it works.
- LEO, THE WILDLIFE RANGER, Join Leo and friends as they go on exciting adventures around the world and explore exotic locations and learn fun facts about animals and nature!
- JELLY JAM, takes places on a colorful planet called Jammbo. The series follows the adventures of seven characters: Bello, Goomo, Rita, Mina, Ongo, King and Queen; who live on a planet named 'Jammbo'. The planet has a music factory where all music in the universe originates from, and this music is produced continuously through bubbles. If this factory stopped, the characters would turn grey and apathetic, lose their memories and then simply stop moving at all.
- KOOKI'S CRAFTY SHOW, is a live-action pre-school series that empowers young children to unleash the wild side of their creativity through the magic of crafting. Hosted by a semi-suited, cheeky and playful red panda named Kooki, the series will feature two different crafts per episode. Projects will include recyclable crafts, painting and origami, with one craft always incorporating an animal theme. Kooki’s actions will be guided by the voice of a child who will ask Kooki to make things, explaining the process along the way.
