Pay-TV subscribers of China’s StarTimes, operating as StarSat in South Africa, lost yet another TV channel on Thursday, this time DreamWorks that got axed today. “The channel will be offline as at 17 February, due to production being ceased in all African countries,” Luyanda Cele, StarSat spokesperson told Vodmagazine.
Dreamworks, from NBCUniversal International Networks, launched in South Africa and across sub-Saharan Africa on 3 August 2020 but is gone after a year and a half. DreamWorks programming included series like Dragons: Race To The Edge, All Hail King Julien, The Adventures of Puss in Boots as well as Dinotrux and Noddy Toyland Detective. NBCUniversal International Networks told Vodmagazine in response to a media query that “From 18 February, the DreamWorks Channel will no longer be available to StarTimes subscribers in Africa. The channel will be launching soon with DStv; we’ll share more updates in the coming weeks”.
