These Channels Were Speculated To Be On DStv But Didn't Materialize

Over the years, there's been reports of several channels making their way to the platform some of them was supposedly confirmed by them and likely scrapped it's still unknown till this day so here's a roundup of some channels.

EWTN, offers family-oriented, spiritually-enriching programming from a Catholic point of view. The Networks’ diverse programs include live talk shows, news programs, original series and documentaries, teaching series with noted theologians, children’s shows, live coverage of the Pope, a live daily Mass, and much more. According to a representative, the channel was too expensive to get in South Africa so they were exploring ways to get it on board but till then it hit a dead end.

BabyTV is a multilingual international television channel for babies, toddlers, and parents, owned by Fox Networks Group, a subsidiary of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International, ultimately owned by The Walt Disney Company. The channel was originally suppose to be available around the time TopTV launched and this was long before it became Starsat and since the only update regarding the channel was the proposed channel numbers which were 307, 309 and 312.

France 24 is a French state-owned international news television network based in Paris. Its channels broadcast in French, English, Arabic, and Spanish and are aimed at the overseas market, similar to BBC World News, DW and RT.

Syfy is an American basic cable channel that is owned by the NBCUniversal Television and Streaming division of NBCUniversal, a subsidiary of Comcast. The channel features science fiction, fantasy, horror, supernatural, paranormal, drama, and reality programming. MultiChoice Africa was set to relaunch the channel but deemed it expensive while MultiChoice SA wasn't interested and deemed it niche.

eReality, yes this South African beauty was rumored to be a placeholder for the defunct eBella operated by eMedia Investments. MultiChoice even put the channel up in their test channel section. Who knows exactly why it was scrapped perhaps MultiChoice realised this channel has too much programs available on other channels on DStv.

OutTV is a Canadian English language specialty channel which broadcasts general entertainment and lifestyle programming aimed at the LGBT community. So far the brand has returned through Showmax but if you visit the media pages they never mentioned returning with local programs as well so maybe this deal they have with that platform is the start of something new.
