StarSat is losing Love Nature (StarSat 224) as the next TV channel that is being removed from StarTimes' pay-TV service in South Africa and across sub-Saharan Africa.
Love Nature is going dark on StarSat just two years after it was added in December 2019.
StarSat didn't send any notification or advisory to the media in South Africa, but confirmed to TVwithThinus in response to a media query that Love Nature is getting terminated on 30 November.
Luyanda Cele, StarSat spokesperson said that "the channel will be offline as of 30 November 2021 as the provider decided to stop airing the English version of the channel in South Africa".
Asked how StarSat informed the public, StarSat said "we have informed our subscribers via b-mail and SMS".
Love Nature is a Canadian pay-TV channel owned by Blue Ant Media.
Love Nature, available in the United Kingdom, as well as in parts of Europe and Asia, broadcasts documentaries and television series related to wildlife and nature. Love Nature launched in March 2006 originally as Oasis and rebranded in 2015.
