MultiChoice announced that it will reinstate Bloomberg as a 24-hour channel on DStv channel 411 from Monday 15 July.
For the past two weeks, local channel Business Day TV has been carrying 10 hours of Bloomberg Television programmes.
Following feedback from DStv customers – that they prefer to have local and international business news on separate channels – the decision to include Bloomberg content on Business Day TV was reviewed.
“DStv customers told us that they need to have a 24-hour international business news channel and a separate local business news channel. We are pleased that we are able to accommodate this need,” said Collins Khumalo, CEO for MultiChoice South Africa.
