BREAKING. One Music channel to return to TopTV's channel line-up 3 months after HiTV went bust.
You're reading it here first.
I can break the news and reveal that the music channel One Music (TopTV 506) which TopTV lost in November together with the Nollywood channel HiNolly when HiTV went belly up will be returning to the South African pay TV provider sometime within the next 12 hours.
TopTV will be able to return One Music to its platform and the channel will definitely be back by tomorrow (28 February) if not by later today already. One Music which has a heavy emphasis on Migerian artists and music was suddenly cut off when HiTV went bankrupt and lot its pan-African distributor.
I'm told that TopTV is also working on a replacement channel for HiNolly which also got cut but was a self-compiled HiTV channel and which won't be able to resurface. TopTV should be making an announcement on the replacement of the HiNolly TV channel soon.
