M-Net +1 Is The Third Channel To Be Removed From MultiChoice's DStv


Just as I theorized few weeks back, MultiChoice and M-Net are discontinuing the M-Net +1 on DStv after 5 years with the channel that is set to close on May 16, 2021.

According to their customer care, the channel is being closed as they are reviewing their content offering. The termination of the channel is informed by their customer's increasing preference to view content on the DStv app and Catch Up.

Within 4 months, DStv managed to remove 3 channels in South Africa and 4 for the rest of Africa. Out of that portion only 1 channel seemed somewhat a loss which was EVA that distributed Bold And The Beautiful from CBS.

As much as +1 helped some customers it was just another duplicate channel and SuperSport already has that with the WWE Channel which joins the same titanic.

If I had to guess what's being discontinued in the near future, I'd look at the M-Net channel on 902 and the SuperSport community sports channel on 490. On the international side, I'd look at the channels from WarnerMedia, Ginx TV, ViacomCBS and Discovery Inc.
