GOD TV to Stop airing on DStv
October 2017

MultiChoice would like to inform its customers that GOD TV will stop airing on DStv next month. From 15 November 2017 the Christian network will no longer be on the DStv Southern African platform.

“While leaving DStv is disappointing, we are not able to sustain the cost,” said GOD TV’s regional director for Africa, Marcél Oliver. “We need to carefully manage all God has given us and ensure we don’t put our wider mandate and distribution at risk. We thank DStv for the opportunity we have had to reach more homes in Southern Africa these past seven months.”

GOD TV started on DStv in April this year and has been well received by viewers on channel 344 of the platform. The network regrets any inconvenience to viewers.

GOD TV’s CEO, Ward Simpson said it was unfortunate the network was leaving DStv but reassured viewers of GOD TV’s ongoing mission worldwide. “Each GOD TV region is self-funded and it’s disappointing that we haven’t had the support for this project we hoped for. We thank our partners for this opportunity to reach more homes via DStv and for their continued support in helping us take the Gospel further across Africa and worldwide.”

DStv customers DStv will continue to enjoy similar Christian faith content available on other channels including Dumisa (DStv channel 340), One Gospel (DStv channel 331) Faith (DStv channel 341), TBN (DStv channel 343), Day Star Africa (DStv channel 342), Emmanuel TV (DStv channel 390) and TBN (DStv channel 343).

Ends.
