FOXY CHAN­NEL

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

Hi tv­plus! Why did FOX open its chan­nel to Com­pact DStv view­ers? Not that I’m com­plain­ing… – ANONY­MOUS, VIA SMS It’s been good news for DStv Com­pact view­ers who now have full ac­cess to the FOX chan­nel (*125) as part of their pack­age (as of 1 June 2016). Ac­cord­ing to FOX pub­li­cist Gilda Van Schalk­wyk, the chan­nel was opened to Com­pact cus­tomers for two full weeks be­tween Fe­bru­ary and March 2016. Mul­tiChoice no­ticed a spike in the au­di­ence dur­ing that pe­riod and made the de­ci­sion to open the chan­nel to the DStv Com­pact bou­quet – per­ma­nently. Says Gilda, “FOX wants to give more to the DStv Com­pact cus­tomers that cur­rently don’t have ac­cess to non-premium con­tent.” And as a part of the pro­mo­tion for FOX, they brought the stars of the chan­nel’s flag­ship show Em­pire (2015- cur­rent) – Cookie (Taraji P Hen­son) and Lu­cious (Ter­rence Howard) – to SA. NB! See more on p31.

Cookie and Lu­cious were in Mzansi re­cently.
