Multichoice is dropping another couple of channels from its DStv bouquet.  Out goes Animal Planet and Vox Africa (a London-based pan-African entertainment channel).

Local reports say that Multichoice’s management are stressing that its focus is on entertainment and it has assessed the performance and viability of channels on its platform to achieve a diverse variety of programming that best resonates with its viewers, market by market.

“In line with a recent strategic review, we have therefore decided to make these changes, while also including an exciting range of entertainment channels; Maisha Magic Bongo, Vuzu and M-Net Family and opened up BBC Brit, CBeebies, BBC Lifestyle and a localized BET channel from DStv Premium to Compact Plus and Compact packages to give more subscribers a broader variety of entertainment programming to enjoy in time for the holiday season,” said a statement.
