South Africa: Multichoice To Remove SABC Encore From EPG Listings For Good!

After five years running, the SABC Encore channel will be discarded from South Africa's DStv bouquet, effective the end of May 2020, Multichoice has announced!

DStv South Africa has carried SABC Encore, a popular re-run channel that contains mostly 'old-ish' content from the SABC content archives.

 It was as part of a deal agreed on a while back that allowed both the SABC News and SABC Encore channels to be on MultiChoice's DStv bouquet in South Africa.

It is still unclear from the reporting around the matter if SABC Encore should be run as a stand-alone TV channel on the DTT environment or any other platform.
