Obviously DSTV does not pay any attention to what their users are saying....

Da Vinci Kids coming soon to DStv?

 

Found this on my i-Plate a while ago did some research and guess what its Da Vinci Kids the same Da Vinci Kids which is currently on Starsat/StarTimes and Openview. Is this one of the two new channels DStv will be announcing soon. It carries certain things DStv mentioned History, Documentaries and Factual Content. Basically its a kids version of Discovery Channel. It wouldn't shock me if its one of the two remember Animal Planet's replacement Real Time on channel 155. This is a drastic move for one the kids will be happy but those who actually watch History, Lifetime and Crime & Investigation how will they feel. I'm just a concerned subscriber in absolute shock right now.



A kids channel - really?!?! This does not help with the loss of Real Housewives and Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.

If MC honestly thinks the thousands of very unhappy premium & compact subscribers are going to accept a kids channel as replacement they are in for a big surprise... Better start employing more people to respond on social media and at the call centre.

Would be nice of you to respond further on your own forum MC.

Also signed, and gave a small donation.

 

But I must agree with you Doug. DSTV and its customers are not in the same life raft.

Signed it last week, but I suspect we're farting against thunder. Smiley Frustrated

Re: Dstv to cut channels

I have never experienced this amount of anger amongst friends, family and colleagues when DStv decided to remove channels. It doesn't make sense 1 or all 3 channels are very popular in households all over the country. It does not make any sense to me.
