BACK FROM BLACK: TopTV channels visible again after TopTV suffered another major technical network problem this year.


Pay TV operator TopTV seems to have finally ''repaired'' whatever malfunctions the South African pay TV operator experienced when multiple TV channels simply went black.

While TopTV subscribers wondered what was going on, TopTV which suffered its latest major technical network problem this year, didn't say a word to the press about it. 

TopTV lost various major channels, including SABC1, SABC2, SABC3 and e.tv.

Meanwhile TopTV has quietly removed Hi Nolly (TopTV 120) and One Music (TopTV 506) from its channel line-up and electronic programme guide (EPG). Both channels were accessible after their signals were suspended but showed a ''channel suspended message''.

The message on both channels, discontinued due to the bankrupty of the channel distributor Hi TV in Nigeria, said ''a replacement is being obtained''. TopTV haven't said a word for almost a month now about new replacement channels, while the two channels have now been quietly removed and can't be accessed anymore.
