On Friday, the 31st of March 2017, OpenView HD will no longer broadcast Shembe UNyazi TV. The religious channel had been part of the OpenView HD bouquet for 21 months.
OpenView HD’s Managing Director, Patrick Conroy, says the decision was taken based on business and ratings criteria.
“We are grateful to Shembe UNyazi for being on our platform to date. Regrettably we could not find common ground on the way forward” Conroy says.
OpenView HD has revamped its content line up over the past 12 months. It recently introduced another movie channel, eMovies Extra, to its bouquet as well as Trace Sports Stars.
“We continue to evaluate the performance of all channels and are committed to bringing improved entertainment content to our viewers” says Conroy. “More channels will be added in future and we will make announcements in that regard in due course”.
