ASHES TO ASHES IS BACK
Hi tvplus. Why doesn’t e.tv air repeat episodes of Backstage anymore?

e.tv stopped airing the repeats of Backstage (2000-2007) from Thursday 10 September without warning, replacing them with repeats of the popular telenovela Ashes To Ashes (2015). Publicist Boniswa Matshoba confirmed that “Backstage has been replaced with Ashes to Ashes repeats. The channel’s scheduling strategy is guided by the feedback we get from audience research”. And the audience wants more Ashes. For now, there are no plans to bring the Backstage repeats back.
