New DStv HD sports channel on DStv April


DStv subscribers can look forward to another High Definition channel in April 2011.
MultiChoice recently announced via its forum and DStv Twitter account that they will launch another sports channel in HD on 7 April 2011. MultiChoice would not reveal further details about the new HD sports channel, saying that they will give specifics about the new channel in early April.

In related news the new Trace Sports HD is set to launch in June this year, and according to TV Blog Teeveetee the company will be engaging in negotiations in South Africa with pay TV operators for possible broadcasting in the country.

''I confirm that we will be launching Trace Sports in June this year,'' Olivier Laouchez, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Trace TV, is quoted as saying. ''We are now discussing with South African pay TV operators regarding carriage on their platforms. Nothing is yet finalized with them and I will be in South Africa next week for follow up discussions,'' Laouchez told Teeveetee.

MultiChoice however was quick to quash speculation that the new DStv HD Sports channel will be Trace Sports HD. "Details are still under wraps until early April, but please be assured it will not be Trace Sports," MultiChoice said in a statement on their forums.
