DStv Bans Emmanuel TV From Its Broadcast Networks


Multichoice DStv has officially revealed its decision to cease the broadcast of Emmanuel TV, the religious network established by the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), late pastor Temitope Balogun Joshua.

The decision by Multichoice DStv came before the controversial documentary aired by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), which levelled serious allegations against the deceased clergyman.

The controversial three-part documentary produced by the BBC delved into allegations of atrocities and sexual crimes committed by T.B. Joshua against his disciples.

The investigative report involved interviews with at least 30 purported former members and workers of SCOAN.

In a message displayed on the screen, Multichoice DStv informed its viewers about the imminent discontinuation, slated to take effect from January 17, 2024.

The message stated, “Dear viewer, please note that Emmanuel TV will exit on the 17th of January 2024. Thank you for watching.”

Notably, Emmanuel TV will not only part ways with Multichoice but will also terminate its services on StarSat and several other pay-TV platforms.
