Adds five more channels as part of improvement but removes Toonami, MTV Asia, Fox Family Movies and FX
SKY Pacific, owned by Digicel Fiji, has announced the return of the very popular Discovery Channel from early-July.
In addition, four more channels will be added to the SKY Pacific platform from tomorrow. These are Fight Sports Channel, MTV Live, Boomerang and TVWAN Life.
The five new channels are expected to be a major boost for SKY Pacific customers across the Pacific.
But, the new channels will replace Toonami, MTV Asia, Fox Family Movies and FX. The Super Channel will also be removed and all content will be migrated to TVWAN Action and TVWAN.
Digicel Fiji chief executive, Darren McLean, said the latest set of channel improvements is in direct response to customer feedback.
“I’m really happy Discovery Channel will be returning to Sky Pacific. It has been one of the most consistent themes in customer feedback since we have been operating Sky Pacific,” he said.
In order to transition from Fiji TV equipment and facilitate the new content, there will be a reduction to 24 channels for two weeks from June 15.
During this time, an equipment upgrade is being undertaken to improve quality for some parts of Fiji.
Sky Pacific has advised that all customers will need to update their settings by conducting a rescan using their remote control to receive the new content from Wednesday.
Details of how to perform the rescan will be published in the press and on the Digicel Facebook page from Tuesday.
