Dstv to cut channels

Re: Dstv to cut channels

Agree Doug.

 

MC think they are dealing with a bunch of doffies, and that we won't see the 'hidden' agenda.

 

I am actively engaged in seeking an alternative......

Re: Dstv to cut channels

We don't know much about the new channels, but we do know MC, so:

 

- There will be a net loss i.e. the overal number of channels will continue to decrease, not increase.

- The content of the new channels will bear no resemblance to the channels lost i.e. they will not be "replacement" channels.

- The new channels will be cheaper than the lost channels, possibly bargain-box class.

- The new channels will have a greater chance of joining the majority of channels that no one watches, than becoming popular channels.

- There will be a big new-channel announcement by MC in which they will pat themselves on the back for their generosity to their viewers.

- When we protest, and we shall, MC will simply ignore us as usual.

Re: Dstv to cut channels

Why would you think that JP?? They were announced as replacement channels...

But who knows these days with this "manage"ment, so maybe you have a point.

Re: Dstv to cut channels

And when can we expect the announcement about the two new channels (not that I expect that to happen on here)?

 

Will they be launching on 01 Nov or when?

Re: Dstv to cut channels

I think I previously learnt that History channel's parent website offers free downloads, or perhaps it's streaming. (Sorry if I'm wrong.)

However, knowing the industry it may be structured for specific countries only...

And perhaps a related email address is needed for potential registration needs, or a neutrally international one like googlemail.

 

(Obviously if posting any more about this, it would be inviting MC's wrath, so strongly suggest that nobody does ;-)    )
