MultiChoice is getting rid of another two channels in their offering, a month after it announced a host of changes to their line-up.
According to TV with Thinus, MultiChoice has confirmed they will stop airing Disney XD and Fox Life from October 1.
“The change is as a result of ongoing review of channels by content providers and platform partners,” Multichoice explained.
“Favourite Disney XD content will migrate to the Disney Channel (channel 303). Retained programming will include live-action, animation and key franchise series, movies and stunts.
“Current shows like Phineas and Ferb, DuckTales, Big City Greens, Supa Strikas, Disney 11, Lab Rats, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Gravity Falls and Big Hero 6 will continue, as well as a host of new series which will be announced in the coming months.”
In August, MultiChoice announced a number of cancellations and new channels would be implemented from September 1. This included changes to all the M-Net movie channels and new Super Sport channels for an enhanced offering for sports fans.
ESPN and ESPN2 have been available since July 29, and showcases a variety of sports content including soccer games from the Scottish and English leagues as well as African leagues and NFL and NBA games from the US.
SuperSport dropped their numbering system on September 1, and replaced them with a thematic offering around individual sports to ensure it is easier for viewers to find their favourite sports.
The SuperSport Grandstand channel hosts the best of any live curated sport available to Premium customers at any one time, including soccer, rugby, cricket, golf and tennis. There is multiple themed channels, including a “Variety” channel offering.
A KykNET pop-up TV channel also launched. FliekNET showcases local Afrikaans content. KIX Channel was also introduced, offering content solely dedicated to bringing subscribers martial arts and kung-fu films.
