Reminder: e.tv's African Feed To Cease Transmission On DStv And GOtv

(You can now share on Facebook)

Earlier in the month, it was reported that e.tv's additional channels will cease transmission on DStv and MultiChoice will open up a few existing channels to their customers while as launching DreamWorks.

From April 1st, the only channels present from eMedia Investments would be e.tv and eNCA while eNuus continues offering their news bulletin on kykNET well that's not entirely true or at least for the rest of Africa that is.

 

MultiChoice Africa plans to scrap e.tv (also known to viewers as eAfrica or eGhana) from their DStv and GOtv packages by the end of month leaving only the news portion of eMedia Investments as they sought out other entertainment.

Basically, eMedia Investments theory about their partnership with MultiChoice for e.tv blew up in their faces or at least for the rest of Africa. Of course both parties had an alternative motive but with Netflix you can see where MultiChoice's heart lies.

According to Limpopo TV, MultiChoice has a new business plan and although not much details are available aside from the no community channel policy. The idea of e.tv alongside other e.tv channels forming part of this plan doesn't seem far fetched.

 
 

Since the pandemic, MultiChoice had been chopping several channels such as BBC First, ITV Choice, M-Net City and VUZU in their attempts to streamline and launched several originals like HONEY, Maisha Magic Movies and WildEarth.

These eChannels lacked originality and some of the content which may not be found on DStv is licensed by other networks take for instance eToonz with DreamWorks and eExtra with Timeless Dizi Channel and Zee World.
