Oscar Pistorius Trial TV channel on DStv shutting down until 7 August when it will broadcast again when closing arguments are to be heard.
The Oscar Pistorius Trial TV channel (DStv 199) on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform is shutting down tonight at midnight for a third time since it began.
The Oscar Pistorius Trial TV channel will broadcast again from 08:00 on 7 August when the trial of the former paralympic athlete who shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last year on 14 February will resume.
The court is expected to hear closing arguments on 7 August and the Oscar Pistorius Trial TV channel,produced by Combined Artistic Productions for DStv, will carry that court proceedings again live from this date.
Katy Katopodis, asked what she is going to be doing now with all her free time during evenings, told viewers on Tuesday night during her show Court Today with Katy, "grade two homework".
The most recent start-up of the Oscar Pistorius Trial TV channel on DStv was a definite misfire: a toned-down, torn-down, reduced and redacted version of how the channel initially started.
The Oscar Pistorius Trial TV channel suddenly had reduced hours, changed shows and an altered schedule, none of which was not communicated, nor explained, in addition to a new amateurly and bad looking, green-screened virtual block fake-remake of the once amazing studio.
