A bit off-topic sorry.  I am happy about any HD upgrade even though Comedy Central is the only one of these I sometimes watch - and not even that often - but I would have thought something like NatGeo or even news channels should be a much higher HD priority.

No press release in dstv.com's spotlight section either

so not sure where MC are expecting us to source our factual info from?

Thinus says it will be MTV Music 24. A channel with that specific name is currently only broadcast in the Netherlands. Guess we will have to wait and see what we get!

In fairness to Thinus as well - sometimes he does deliver;

 

1. He mentions the channel has Rock content as well, so looks like only Alternative is still wanting... or maybe it is occasionally available, guess time will tell.

 

Well, Alternative is a sub-genre of Rock, so it's probably covered by that label.

2. I see he's also got a very interesting (to me anyway) new article about the M-Net group's challenges with getting the movies we think they easily get, including mention of the only real competition few of us know about.

You missed a bit, the article also reveals that BET, Comedy Central, MTV and MTV Base will also be upgraded to HD soon.

 

But I've found his articles too unreliable at times, surely MC would still prefer to announce directly to us?

@Cya_DStv1  , please can you expand further.

A trick I tried this morning may be the best way to generally check these things at the month ends, for anyone who's interested enough.

Do a Word search for "Important".

 

The only other mention is the new replacement News channel being launched sometime this year.

 

But, @Cya_DStv1  , if there are press releases available they would be highly appreciated.

I finally found the message on the Explora TV guide - at 00:55-01:00 this morning when hardly anyone would have been watching... Other airings shows a few more times it will be shown though. The guide for 4 & 5 March still shows the VH1 Classic programming.

 

@Cya_DStv1 - are you able to provide more info please? Which feed we will be getting etc?
