Glow is go­ing…

GlowTV is clos­ing down at the end of June, but what about its shows?

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

Hi tv­plus. I read about GlowTV can­celling their shows. So what is go­ing to hap­pen to This Is Love? Are they go­ing to move it some­where else or is it go­ing to be can­celled on DStv also? – AL­BERT, VIA EMAIL

This Is Love (2013- cur­rent) started on GlowTV on 2 May this year (across DStv, OpenView HD and StarSat) and as the se­ries runs to around 800 episodes, it’s not go­ing to fin­ish be­fore the chan­nel goes dark on all plat­forms due to high pro­gram­ming costs on Thurs­day 30 June 2016. Glow has noted that its pro­grammes, in­clud­ing This Is Love (or Yeh Hai Mo­hab­batein, its In­dian name), will un­for­tu­nately not be trans­ferred to other chan­nels. We know that it’s no sub­sti­tute, but if you sim­ply have to tie up those loose ends af­ter 30 June, you’ll be able to find all the de­tails on the show’s wikipedia page. The change will also af­fect tv­plus’s TV sched­ules (see more from p44 to 71), so from Fri­day 1 July, we’ll be adding FOX (DStv chan­nel 125) – home of se­ries like Em­pire (2015- cur­rent), The Walk­ing Dead (2010- cur­rent), The Simp­sons (1989- cur­rent) and Fresh Off The Boat (2015- cur­rent) – to our guides. From June, FOX has been made avail­able to DStv Com­pact sub­scribers, giv­ing them even more view­ing.

Fans of This Is Love are go­ing to lose out on their favourite GlowTV show.
