BREAKING. The missing FOX Crime on StarSat is 'a temporary technical problem at the uplink site,' says StarSat.


The FOX Crime (StarSat 131) TV channel which suddenly disappeared from On Digital Media's (ODM) StarSat satellite pay-TV line-up on Thursday night is "a temporary technical problem" and FOX Crime will be back although StarSat isn't saying when.

FOX Crime which is also available on MultiChoice's DStv pay-TV satellite platform, disappeared on Thursday night, with StarSat subscribers fearing that the channel has been yanked.

Fox International Channels Africa (FIC Africa) told TV with Thinus earlier today that FOX Crime is still being supplied to StarSat - meaning that the channel hasn't been cut by the supplier and that the problem is somewhere with StarSat.

StarSat, formerly known as TopTV, didn't elaborate on or explain what exactly the problem is and why the channel turned black, but has responded to a media enquiry saying that the disappearance of FOX Crime "is a temporary technical problem at the uplink site".

StarSat says "our technicians are working on it".
