MultiChoice to drop ITV channel
Pay TV operator MultiChoice is to remove British entertainment channel ITV Choice from its offering at the end of May after five years on its DStv platform.
Although the channel stopped broadcasting across the Middle East and Asia in August 2019, it has continued to air in South Africa.
An ITV Choice spokesman said: “DStv has decided that ITV’s international TV channel, ITV Choice, will no longer be carried on the DStv platform in Africa from June 4, 2020. The ITV brand will continue as a video-on-demand service in other territories.”
The news follows the removal of A+E Networks UK channels Lifetime, History and Crime+Investigation from MultiChoice’s offering in October 2019.
